Re: Day 2, Have you considered spending the night in Tagaytay?

Enchanted Kingdom is just off the Santa Rosa Exit en route to Tagaytay, so you may want to do EK day 2, go up to Tagaytay to spend the night after the park and away from the Manila heat.

Day 3, you can go to Breakfast by Antonio's while enjoying the Tagaytay weather and scenery and head back to Greenhills after lunch (malls close at around 9 in Manila) before heading back to your hotel in Arnaiz.

Day 4, I'd give Robinsons a miss if you are going to MOA. You may instead want to explore the surrounding Malate district. You've been to one mall, you've been to them all, IMO.

Have fun!

oh wow.. we don't plan to spend a night in Tagaytay as we've got the hotels all booked and paid for and was only planning a daytrip (no hiking) to get a view of taal and the surroundings. A mistake on my part as i didn't realize EK was en route to Tagaytay..

Is it possible to do Tagaytay and EK in one day tho?

In Taal volcano, you do not need to hike. You can rise a horse/pony/donkey (whatever you call it) up to the crater.

Tagaytay and EK can be done in a day but you have to leave Manila very early and come back very late. If I am not wrong, EK closes in the early evening.

TA member touristdriver is a terrific guide and driver. If your budget allows, send touristdriver a private message through TA as he may still be available if you act fast. He will inform you of his rates which typically includes a modern Toyota vehicle and his time. He can work out the best (and usually quickest) route to maximise your sightseeing.

TD is very punctual and knows when to be quiet: no incessant chatter if you don't want that.

Lol! yea I actually contacted him but he's booked for that day so he intro'ed Ed instead. Hope all goes well.

Intramunos, Rizal Park and Ocean Park is within walking distance right? and from Ocean Park can I easily get a taxi to MOA? What should I expect to pay for the taxi fare?
