Nice place to visit for a quick getaway. Beautiful scenery and easily accessible. We took the bus from Dasma however beware of traffic heading back to Manila. While you are there make sure to try the delicious buko pie.

Tagaytay is about 1 to 1 1/2 hours travel from Metro Manila and every year my family visits this place to enjoy the cool weather, ambiance, atmosphere and things the place offers. This year is no exception, as we enjoyed the company of my wife's tito and tita and my nephew. Unlike a decade or 2 before, Tagaytay today is... More

We went on a quick business weekend and I was impressed. They have a very sound infrastructure. Traffic was flowing even with the local tricycle present. Plenty of places to eat and the Lake has a phenomenal view. I am seriously considering making the move there.

This is one of the top recommended places to bring foreign guests to (due to the cool weather) unfortunately traffic is very heavy especially during weekends. If you are patient enough, good food and breathtaking view awaits.

If the heat of Manila is getting you down than head here. Just be warned that at times your travel time will double due to lots of other people having same idea.

We passed by Tagaytay city while going to Taal Volcano from Manila. Such a nice and crowded city. Many tricycle or bike with 3 wheels. Very simple place

It's a beautiful place, stunning scenery: a lake within the Taal volcano crater, the mountain side covered with green trees, an island in the lake. But due to that beauty and the proximity to Manila Tagaytay City itself is a polular weekend target destination for lots of people from Manila and hence often overcrowded. Anyway, the view is definitely worth... More
