Tagaytay

Tagaytay

Just a 2-hour drive south of Metro Manila is a great weekend getaway destination frequented by both locals and tourists. The highlands of Tagaytay provide picturesque views and cool winds, making this city perfect for those tired of the scorching Manila cityscape.

When in Tagaytay, be sure to fill up on mouthwatering delights. Spoil yourself and a loved one with a fine-dining experience at Antonio’s, which was featured in the Miele Guide as one of the top restaurants in Asia. Grab a seat in Breakfast at Antonio’s where you can enjoy great food with a great view but in a more casual setting.

If the winds get a bit too chilly, warm up with a cup of joe from Bag of Beans. The cafe uses homegrown barako coffee beans for a strong flavor that lives up to its name, which means “wild boar.”

To get a bird’s eye view of the city, you can take a ride on the Sky Eye, located in the Sky Ranch. Standing at 63 meters (207 ft), the Sky Eye is the tallest ferris wheel in the country. The Sky Ranch also has attractions like a carousel, pony rides, and a kid-friendly roller coaster, as well as several food establishments.

Other parks to visit are the People’s Park in the Sky and the Picnic Grove. These are great places to sit back, relax, and enjoy the breeze with your family. You can also get souvenirs and try the unique local delicacy, buko (coconut) pie.

Tagaytay overlooks the Taal Volcano, the smallest active volcano in the world. Visitors will have no trouble hiking up to the crater, which can also be accessed on horseback. Local guides offer boat rides around Taal Lake to get to the volcano, but you can also visit the Taal Lake Yacht Club to rent boats and kayaks. The club also arranges sailing lessons with the boat rentals.

Enrich yourself in art and culture by visiting Museo Orlina. This 5-level townhouse is home to interesting abstract art pieces, an amphitheater, a lush garden, and the Green Bean Coffeeshop.

Inquisitive minds will also enjoy the Tagaytay Library and Museum, and the Puzzle Mansion, which was awarded the Guinness World Record for largest collection of jigsaw puzzles in 2012.
