Where there’s a park, there are vendors! You’ll find all sorts of vendors in Burnham Park like food, toys for young ones, accessories and of course souvenirs .

You’ll find lots of vendors selling silver accessories. Don’t be fooled. These are just silver plated metals. I’m not saying Don’t buy them (i bought some), but these are cheap accessories so buy them cheap. If the vendor says P150.00, tell him or her to drop the 1. Hahhahaha. When buying these stuff, always ask for the price 50%-80% off the original. They’ll give it to you believe me. If not, find another vendor.

Also, buy in bulk. You’d get bigger discounts.

If you want to buy original silver items, buy from IBAYs (not ebay). Its a well known jewelry store in Baguio.

There are also knitted clothes around burnham, specially at night. Just make sure you ask for a discount.

Beside Burnham Park is another park, Rizal Park. Its a small park where a monument for our National Hero Dr. Jose P. Rizal is placed.
