Accessibility from Manila City, the awesome cool breeze, the road trip, the bulalo (beef, bone marrow and vegetable soup), the mushroom burger, the pink sisters, Starbucks with the best ambience, horseback riding and more! The list just goes on and on!
In a congested area like Manila, there is the urge and desire to have a break from such fast-paced city life, a place where one can find tranquility, even just for a while, a recharging platform so to speak. That awesome getaway.
Tagaytay definitely takes out such burn-out feeling.
One of my favorite places in the Philippines! This place is and will always be special for so many reasons:
My very first experience when it comes to horseback riding, Tagaytay is really well known for a filipino kid’s horseback riding experience and expect the Filipino parents having this as part of their itinerary for the love of their kids.
When I was a kid and when my parents were still together, Tagaytay has been our family summer getaway, Taal Vista has been our regular place there, yeah, the cold weather didn’t stop my sister and I from swimming. When I was a kid, I loved taal vista more than tagaytay itself because of the swimming pool haha.
The awesome Taal Volcano (Wont elaborate much because I’ll have a separate entry for this).
The road trip with my dear friends (Insert the craziest stuffs here that happens along the way! Oh well, the joy of road trip and randomness).
The steady moment when all of you are together, having a spectacular view of the taal volcano, holding your cup of cappuccino or bottle of beer. Good times.
Truth is, we all need a break from the crowd, and whether you want to take this break all by yourself, or with your dear family and friends – it’s great to know that there’s this place not too far from Manila where one can find a sweet escape.
Tagaytay – one simple joy of being a Filipino.
