Great day trip or overnight trip just a short drive south of Manila. If you're a foodie, you're in luck as there are a lot of delicious eateries. I, personally, would make a foodie trip out of it; but for outdoor enthusiasts, there's the hike up Taal Volcano. Families can just hang out in little huts on the cliff, looking out over a great view while eating excellent local cuisine.

A few months ago, my nephew had a destination wedding in Tagaytay and it was one of my most enjoyable trips in the Philippines indeed. Their wedding took place at the Chapel on the Hill located in Don Bosco, Batulao, Batangas City, a good 20 minutes drive from the town proper. After the church wedding, everyone drove to Ladera Grill at Splendido located in Tagaytay Ridge Road, Laurel, and enjoyed cocktails with a breathtaking view of Taal Volcano while the cool and fresh air enveloped me. This was followed by a sumptuous dinner in a very relaxing, traditional Spanish style residence turned restaurant, Antonio's, which is considered one of the top restaurants in the Philippines. We ended the night at T Lounge at T House for the after party. There are various top rated accommodations in Tagaytay and here are my suggestions: Discovery Country Suites, One Tagaytay Place, Taal Vista Lodge, Pina Colina and Tagaytay Highlands. Apart from those 2 mentioned restaurants, I would recommend Josephine's for authentic Filipino dishes, Cafe Verbena and Buon Giorno.

Much closer to Manila compared to Baguio City due to the cool climates, Tagaytay offers plenty of things to do and see. Great getaway from the suburban and bustling part of the metro area of Manila.
If you're from the Philippines, I'm sure there's better and easier ways to get to Tagaytay, but for others, you can take a short plane trip here. The city is known for the Taal Volcano, in which many tourists come to visit and take in the serene views. If you care to take a closer approach of the volcano, I believe there's boats that you can rent to take yourself there. However, my secret is to go to People's Park in the Sky. The mansion was to be used by former president Marcos, instead they converted it for the public. So there's more history to be told when you come here.
If you're looking for more family activities that many kids will want to enjoy, Tagaytay has the nearby city of Laguna that has an amusement park. Quite like Disneyland, Enchanted Kingdom has rollercoaster rides, games, and playful cartoon characters to bask yourselves in for fun!
Also, Tagaytay has many vast lands of exotic flowers, plants, and trees surrounding the city. So the best place to catch 18-holes for a round of golf....you've come to the right place! Plus, the white beach sand resorts are spectacular! A stretch mile of sand, surf, rays of sun, and the beauty of the city....I leave the city with nothing but fond memories!Recommended for:Family Travelers

they dubbed this as the baguio city of the south. weather here is like up in baguio, cooler than in the city of manila. is somewhat in a higher elevation and not as busy as in th city. fresh fruits abound the place and are cheaper before they bring them to manila.lots of foreigners come here to retire.
