A friend had recommended a visit to Lake Taal for what he called the scenery which, according to him, included a volcanic plug in a crater lake on an island within a larger lake, so an island within a lake within an island within a lake within an island within the sea! I never got to see the lake owing to communication problems with bus drivers. Not as many Filipinos have good English as I was led to believe and I had a seriously boring time. Ironically on the way home I discovered that I was only about half an hour away from the lake when I sat next to an old English man who has a house there. When I told him where I was staying he said I could have got there in half an hour by bus if I’d known what to say to the driver. But hey that’s life and I was glad to get out of there before the Taal Volcano erupted. No-one else will get to see the volcanic plug in the crater lake that my friend described either because it’s all changed since the eruption.

Lake Taal is accessible for a day trip from Manila. The Lake has a number of nice resorts along with its shores. If you plan to stay for couple of days, the local resorts can organize day hiking trips to the top of active Taal Volcano. The boat tour costs from 2000 Pesos to 2500 Pesos depending upon the duration. I booked a local boat and went all the way to the Island.

Taal volcano is a complex volcano located on the island of Luzon in the Philippines. We stayed in Batangas and so drove from Batangas. Prior to our drive itself we had fixed a boat from a local Filipino to take us to the island. It has some of the most picturesque and attractive views in the Philippines. I had travelled from there to cavite, tagatay as well but would still prefer this. If you are travelling from Manila , it’s around 60kms ( depending upon where you stay in Manila). Generally it’s a 30 minute boat ride across the lake to the village of Talisay on Volcano Island and we took some pony to ride us to the top. Horse back Riding was also a great adventure and the hard working nature of the Filipino always amuses me. In that island I saw young Filipino girls who work hard, so polite, accommodating and this is definitely worth the visit.
