The place was so cool and away from traffic in Manila. The place was on top of the mountain like your "woooaaaahhh!". Twin lakes in Tagaytay was wonderful feeling the cool air that smoothly embrace you.

I've been to Tagaytay so many times - with family or friends. It's charm never fades, especially the view of Taal Volcano from the restaurants that lined up the ridge. Then there's the Mahogany Market where the finest bulalos can be found, and the Pink Sister's Convent where lots of people visit for prayers. Tagaytay City is a must when... More

Just an hour away from Manila, Tagaytay captures nature and nurture in a bottle . So scenic and yet you will find all urban amenities, shopping malls, coffee shops, huge amusement parks etc. . We stayed here for two days to relax and it was heavenly. From Manila travel very early to avoid traffic!

About the only place worth seeing is the scenic crater lake and Mt Taal. the whole place can do with some more sprucing up if it is to be popular with foreign tourists after travelling for more than an hour. The people's Park seemed to have seen better days. An old abandoned building could have been put into good use... More

Lots of things to do and lots of places to eat and drop by. I highly suggest you avoid going here on holidays and long weekends as it gets too crowded.

The expressway drive from Manila to Tagaytay city is spectacular. but once you reach the periphery of the city, it gets congested. Hardly any space for overtaking slow moving vehicles. The police are always ready to help. The view of Taal lake and the volcano are sites to see.

Its always a pleasure driving to Tagaytay city where the weather is cooler and the scenery spectacular. It amusing to see vendors along the highway selling peanuts and fruits. Everyone visiting Tagaytay gets a treat of fresh fruits sold in the fruit stands along the way. I specially like the guyabano juice in the bottle, refreshing when cold. Bulalo in... More

To begin, I live in Tagaytay and I did rate Tagaytay "average" because of the increasing traffic and the innumerous condominium towers being built lately. This city used to be a quiet place to live and was a great place to come... but it has become "victim of its success" ^^ On week-ends you will waste hours in traffic jams,... More
