Traffic is terrible everytime I go there on a Sunday. But at least it was movung ar snail’s pace. However, never go there after the Christmas break, you need a lot of patience. Good thing my accommodation was on the Calamba side. But of course, most of the restos and tourist attractions are in Tagaytay proper. I tried twice and... More

Tagaytay is known for 3 Rs -- restaurants, relaxation and retreats, mostly because the is relatively cooler and not as densely populated as the neighboring provinces. To us who call this place home, it's a City of Character where motorists are courteous and every local engaged in the retail and hospitality business are polite and honest.

If you are a backpacker, you can go to any transient hotels around Tagaytay. The best place to look is in front of Picnic Grove. There are lots of things you can do in Tagaytay. If you love bulalo go to Mahogany Market. There are wide varieties of restaurants across Tagaytay. However, the weather is not that cold compared to... More

We just love to have a quick stop here at Tagaytay. Along the side of the street you can buy fresh fruits. If you are a plant collector, there are variety of plants alongside of the streets too. This is the best place where you can never get hungry. There are foods everywhere. From fine resto and quick coffee. AYALA... More

We visited this place again after missing it for more than 15 years. And am just disspointed that there has been no improvements in terms of infrastructure and zoning. As a matter of fact, they just created more malls and very very tall condominium units! It is dissapointing that they have not prevented high rises from being built...it is just... More

Beautiful natural landscape, breathtaking view of taal lake, foodie-haven, and closest decent place from the metro to visit if you just want some fresh air.

I super love this place, with just 2 hours away from the metro; this is my sweetest escape from the city turmoil. The cool breeze plus the majestic scenery always blew me away. A perfect place to bond with friends and family either going on a picnic, dine in with the famous bulalo or simply tsismisan over a coffee.

The city is a sprawl with always something interesting around the next corner. There used to be an English pub but it is no longer there.
