Talisay

Talisay’s name comes from the tree that marked their town’s church during the Philippines’ Spanish colonial period. Now a municipality of Batangas, Talisay currently consists of 21 barrios. From Metro Manila, Talisay can be reached through the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX).

Talisay is very close to tourist hotspots such as Tagaytay City and the Taal Volcano. Tourists who seek to trek or visit the volcano may arrange for accommodations in the municipality, which has a number of resorts. There are beach resorts like Bougainvillea Resort and Taal Lake Yacht Club, as well as swimming pool resorts such as Balai Isabel and Talisay Greenlake Resort.

Talisay’s public market is large and easily accessible, just walking distance from the Tanauan bus stop. Apart from the usual seafood, fruits and vegetables, one would also be able to buy barako, ground Batangas coffee. This makes a perfect souvenir, as Batangas is known for its excellent coffee.

One can also find boats at the market, to be rented for trips to Taal Volcano. Taal Lake itself is part of the municipality’s territory, as well as Mount Binintian, a smaller land mass often mistaken for the volcano. The active volcano’s crater lake is visible all the way from Talisay, for those who simply want to enjoy the view.
