Very accessible whether going to explore the city or going back to manila. I will surely stay again here everytime when... More

Tagaytay City can be really cold + wind chill specially during the months of December to January. It gives the best view of Taal Volcano from the city's many restaurants sitting on the ridge. From the city one can go down to Talisay for an up close visit to Taal lake where the volcano sits. You can also take-off to... More

I booked a day tour through the receptionist at my hotel. The hotel doesn't organise so the receptionist did a favour as I was out for the day. Picked up on time by Bernard, apparently via millennium hotel but cannot be sure of that. Bernard said I was booked for the boat trip and horse ride to the volcano. Wonderful... More

Tagaytay is so beautiful and there is so much to do! The sight lines are breath taking and the highlight is Taal Volcano! Palace in the sky is a great place to check out, although I wish the government would spend money to maintain it. From Palace in the Sky you can see Tagaytay Highlands where the wealthy live! Sky...

We did a day trip with our elderly parents (late 80s and wheelchair bound). Lunch of bulalo and tawilis at "Diners Bulalo" along the ridge. Accessible to old folks and the bulalo was hot and good. The music was eclectic at best and kinda loud though. Visited Tagaytay Highlands - the view was spectacular. The staff at the clubhouse was... More

I just want to share with you guys that you should be careful in choosing your place when you decided an overnight stay. I am very particular on the sidelines of the tricycle drivers when they will bring you to their target house since they will be getting some of your money by asking it to house owner. The land...

Gasp of Fresh Air after urban living in Manila. Totally refreshing experience. Excellent view at Starbucks. Visit Antonio for a good hearty meal too.
