Tagaytay is famous for scenery and cool climate and of course Taal Volcano. Most of the Bars and restaurants are situated with a beautiful view of the Taal volcano island. I remember my mother telling me stories about the volcano ash falls that came raining down on her parents house miles and miles away from Tagaytay 40years ago. I suggest... More

This place is gem for most Manileños and visitors who are trying to get away from Manila heat. It is close enough to the city. One has to visit sky ranch and zoo while up there. Wonderful restaurants that boast some authentic food. Less traffic. Will definitely come back

Just returned from two weeks in the Philippines. The food was great and the people even better. Went to a beautiful lake in the volcano crater. Zip lined and enjoyed the company of family. Never been to the PI? You are missing out on one of life's great countries. Go, now!

Cool climate. Fresh air compared to metro cities. A great weekend escape with family to enjoy the view and recharge. Had a great time riding the ferries wheel overlooking taal lake. The new mini theme park does a great job.

Tagaytay is one of my family's favorite destinations that we regularly visit because it's so near the city. You have to leave early morning though so you don't get caught in bad traffic. Our visit this month during the long Halloween holiday was one of the most "nightmarish" traffic experiences we had maybe because there were just too many activities... More

I wish, posts could include a apecific area of review ex. Taal Vista Hotel - a place of great view and relaxation. Most of the review is helpful but in the end the question of "What place in Tagaytay are they talking about??? Still remains a mystery, well its just my simple but informative opinion. Good day Tagaytay City!!
