Mitra's Ranch, Puerto Princesa

Mar 22, 2011

The Mitra's Ranch in Sta. Monica was our second itinerary during our Puerto Princesa City Tour. Since we started our tour at 10am, we were at the Ranch at 11am and we were already hungry. I only read later on that we should have visited the Ranch after a stop for baked goodies at Baker's Hill. Anyway, Mitra's Ranch was owned by Former Senator Ramon Mitra and is now owned by Baham Mitra. There were lots of tourists and locals while we were there and it was obviously a favorite spot.

Posing at one of the many benches. At the other side of me are a busload of tourists taking their snacks.
Locals just lounging at the place. The tarpaulin says visiting hours is from 9am-5pm, and no entrance fee.

The balcony of the house that gives a very good view of Honda Bay. We missed the congressman by a few minutes and lost the oppurtunity for a photo opp!
The inside of the house taken through the glass walls. Beautiful and lots of memorabilia!
I wish we can have more places like this that government officials have opened to the public. It makes it interesting to see how the other half lives, he he.
