This was my second year visiting Taal Volcano. Last year we walked up the far side of the mountain to the top. This year we went up the other side that has lake access. I would highly recommend both. The trail with the lake access...More

Used to be that the place is green with lots of trees surrounding it... Today, it's riddled with gray "developments" reducing the charm of the once laid-back place where one can have a picnic for free or you can bring along your packed picnic bag......More

Rented a minibus and drove about 2 hours to reach from Manila. Quite a few changes from the last time I was there. There is now a theme park and the horse-riding area has shifted. Price per horse now is 350 pesos per hour.
