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

I'm a native of this city, and I know for a fact that Tagaytay City is NOT in Cavite City rather it's in the province of Cavite. Actually it's one of the three original cities in Cavite province. The two other cities are Cavite and Trece Martirez.

From the van station, we took a jepney to the Skyranch. The Skyranch was packed with people so we decided to just take a quick look from... More

I did a day tour to Tagaytay from Manila, the traffic was bad so I spent most of the day in the car... the People's Palace in the sky was of some interest but besides that the edge of the volcanic lake is highly developed.
