We went to a private house located in Tagaytay City. The place was overlooking the Taal Volcano in Taal Lake. We saw the Taal town below. The view was breathtaking. The air breeze was soothing. The peace and quiet made me relax and forget all of my worries and anxieties. A nice repeat seeing the place two years ago. What... More

I always enjoy Tagaytay on rainy days. The place is not crowded, the weather is really cold ! Traffic is light and I got to enjoy the scenery at my own pace. The view may get blurry sometimes when rain is heavy but I still enjoy the fog. and sound of wind whistling on me.

Tagaytay has great weather... It should be a pedestrian city where you can walk from point to point without fear of getting run over by a car. Its just sad to think that we have to take a car just to move from jollibee to starbucks when its just 100 meters away. Plus there are soo many finger totting street... More

This was a long drive from Manila due to horrendous traffic. But, where can you see a small volcano sitting inside a lake? The views were truly spectacular. The lake is full of fish "farms" which was interesting to see. It was raining so it was a little harder to see from the overlook on top of the mountain. However,... More

Taal Volcano and Lake is the main attraction of Tagaytay, Batangas. This is not very far from Manila however travel is not easy due to traffic blockages and rain etc. Its always better to hire a taxi to and fro. Please ask the taxi guy to take to the Taal Lake, some of then refuse to go down. Many people... More

To flee from the traffic, we chose the Manila-Laguna-Cavite (Tagaytay City). I love watching the fruit stands which the seller given us a free taste. We also got a good view of Taal Volcano.

Tagaytay is a must see destination for visitors to Manila. Where else can you see a volcano inside a lake inside a volcano. The volcano in the lake is the world's smallest volcano. You should always bring a warm jacket etc here as the temperature is very different to that of Manila because of the altitude. It can be cold.... More
