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

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
