“old world charm that's just 2 hrs away from manila”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2011

if tagaytay is a closer alternative to baguio, then consider taal as a closer alternative to vigan or silay. its a 2 hour drive from manila. if you can't find culture in tagaytay, then a nice, picturesque one hour drive from tagaytay to taal (via diokno hway, where canyon woods is) will transport you to this historical town. the town is a living museum, with old houses all around the basilica.

we wanted to go around but werent sure how or where. we didn't think we could trust the tricycle drivers near the plaza as they were charging exorbitant amounts (70 per person!), until we bumped into local tour guide, dindo montenegro (dindo_montenegro@yahoo.com), who knew the town so well and shared a lot of interesting tidbits about the people, the place, the sights and the food. oh, the food! taal's market offers some tasty treats like the suman, empanada and peanut brittle. tito dindo was kind enough to bring us to his family's ancestral house (right beside the basilica) which was so beautiful! they actually serve lunch/snacks to guest who book the place in advance...too bad we met him only when we got there. will definitely reserve a table for a filling and tasty lunch next time we go here.
