It's a beautiful place, stunning scenery: a lake within the Taal volcano crater, the mountain side covered with green trees, an island in the lake. But due to that beauty and the proximity to Manila Tagaytay City itself is a polular weekend target destination for lots of people from Manila and hence often overcrowded. Anyway, the view is definitely worth... More

This review is quite late. For residents of Metro Manila who wants to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, Tagaytay is a good destination for a quick weekend escapade. There are lot of hotels and resorts offering scenic views overlooking the Taal Volcano and Lake but be ready to pay a premium price.

Traffic is terrible everytime I go there on a Sunday. But at least it was movung ar snail’s pace. However, never go there after the Christmas break, you need a lot of patience. Good thing my accommodation was on the Calamba side. But of course, most of the restos and tourist attractions are in Tagaytay proper. I tried twice and... More

Tagaytay is known for 3 Rs -- restaurants, relaxation and retreats, mostly because the is relatively cooler and not as densely populated as the neighboring provinces. To us who call this place home, it's a City of Character where motorists are courteous and every local engaged in the retail and hospitality business are polite and honest.

If you love bulalo go to Mahogany Market. There are wide varieties of restaurants across Tagaytay. However, the weather is not that cold compared to... More

We just love to have a quick stop here at Tagaytay. Along the side of the street you can buy fresh fruits. If you are a plant collector, there are variety of plants alongside of the streets too. This is the best place where you can never get hungry. There are foods everywhere. From fine resto and quick coffee. AYALA... More

We visited this place again after missing it for more than 15 years. And am just disspointed that there has been no improvements in terms of infrastructure and zoning. As a matter of fact, they just created more malls and very very tall condominium units! It is dissapointing that they have not prevented high rises from being built...it is just... More
