With the construction of condos and high rise, traffic has become unbearable. I would have given it a 5 if not for the horrendous traffic especially during lunch and in the afternoon. The cool air that I associate with Tagaytay is also becoming a memory. Unlike before, there are just portions of the day now where one can enjoy that... More

The whole city still has its charm, amidst the modernity of some of the structures. The three white buildings that is very visible along the main road is seriously, a hideous sight! The hike to Taal Volcano is just ok, if you have hiked other mountains.

Tagaytay City is dubbed as one of the best getaway from Metro Manila's hustle bustle. Located in the Province of Cavite just two hours away from Manila. It is over looking the famous Taal lake and volcano just a boundary of Batangas Province. A lot of recreational activity to take away your stress.

Tagaytay is relatively close to Manila to travel to, but is far enough from the hustle and bustle of city life that you'd think you were much farther. The drive was not bad and when you get there, the feel is very different. There are still places to visit and not have to deal with the lines and crowds that... More

Though not on a weekend... because of its proximity to Manila Tagaytay has become an easy getaway, too commercialised, too crowded, hence the ridiculous traffic. So, I only go there during weekdays. The cooler climate makes the place a perfect dining and/or coffee place. It also caters a wide selection of recreational activities.

Tagaytay lost it's scenic views because of the high-rise buildings being built in ot's peaks. You can no longer enjoy food because everybod is trying hard to be above class. I miss the old Tagaytay Kubos, wind and the scenic view.
