This is the favorite weekend destination south of Metro Manila.

Perched on a ridge overlooking Taal Volcano and Taal Lake, Tagaytay is a breath of fresh air for those wanting a quick escape from the city.

Getting here is an easy 2-hour drive from Manila, depending on traffic, of course!

For a budget-friendly commute, look for Tagaytay-bound buses at PITX or catch a Nasugbu or Calatagan-bound bus from Buendia (LRT-Gil Puyat).

Once you arrive, it’s hard to resist the panoramic scenery that will make you come back again and again. Just remember to pack a light cover up for when it gets chilly.
