Tagaytay has been known to be the nearest place to escape the scorching heat of Philippine weather and the polluted urban life. Weather is cool and the place used to be non touristy. It quickly became commercialized with businesses and residential lots. With all the tourists and residents, traffic invaded the area so make sure plan your trip in advance.... More

During my high school and early college years (sometime early 60's) Tagaytay was a quasi-Shangri-la- a place to get lost in the dangerous beauty of the lake within a volcano within a lake. The length of the ridge from Cavite to Batangas rim was lush and one has to take care not to crane close to the ridge or else... More

Have been in Tagaytay 3 years ago, and still this time, we explore Tagaytay City just like first-timers in the area. We went there with no so much planned Itineraries, no planned hotel to stay, no planned restaurant to eat. But still our Tagaytay City stay was safe, smooth and fun.

The nearest place to escape the heat in Manila. It is a good place with a view. I recommend going down the crater lake.

My family thought it would be a good idea to spend Christmas in Tagaytay, something different. Boy was it different!!!!!! The traffic was WORSE than when the APEC was held in Manila this year.....well OK maybe just as bad. It was shocking. With 1 main road, restaurants on both sides, new mall (Ayala), lots of drivers who don't give a... More

Tagaytay is the best place to visit for a big family who loves to eat a lot while loving the view of majestic Taal volcano, Taal lake and the other beauteous scenery surrounding it.... To add, enjoying the cool climate....

Tagaytay City offers the best for a weekend energizer, two hours from manila. Many scenic sightseeing areas, foodie adventures to go to, spas, cool air, a casino, a mix of old and new. You will never get bored and it has everything for young and old.

The weather at night is really cold, fresh fruits everywhere, and the oh-so-mouthwatering bulalo is a must when visiting! If your more of a souvenir shopper, best to head out to Sky Ranch, where goodies from shirt down tp chips and key chains can be found. Also, dont forget the zoo and its a must to try the eye in...
