Tagaytay which is just two hours away from Metro Manila has become one of the favorite weekend destinations for those people who want to stay away from the hustle and bustle of city life. With its cool temperature, distance from Metro Manila and other beautiful attractions I would not be surprised that people from Manila get away and enjoy a day trip in Tagaytay.

Alternatively, Tagaytay is also dubbed as the summer capital of the Philippines. Now if you plan to go to Tagaytay, I strongly suggest you try some of the activities there and maximize the whole experience.


I enjoy looking at the Taal Lake and its volcano from a distance so if you happen to be in Tagaytay, one must not forget to visit the famous lake and the world’s smallest, active volcano in a close range. This Taal Volcano has a huge lake of its own just inside its crater. Trekking to the volcano’s crater is also one of the famous activities in Tagaytay.

Other famous landmarks and attractions are:
