About Tagaytay
Tagaytay City is known for its otherworldly scenery and precious cool climate due to the high altitude. It overlooks Taal Lake and Taal Volcano Island while still only about thirty miles away from Manila, a bustling metropolis and capital city of the Philippines. Tagaytay is known as a popular tourist destination, especially for those wanting to experience the flavor and culture of the area without dealing with the oppressive heat of major cities.
Dining As Pastime
Attention foodies: Tagaytay is a Mecca for your taste buds. There are a wide array of cafes, restaurants, and eateries to choose from offering a plethora of options for your palate. Vegetarians will especially love the food climate as much of what the country consumes is made entirely by natural fruits and/or vegetables. Mushroom Burger, a fast food chain where the mushroom is the star of every meal and used in the production of most dishes, is an excellent choice even for those that have more mainstream diets. Bulalo is a must try for all the meat eaters out there. Beef shanks slow cooked into a soup with fresh vegetables and Filipino seasonings make this hearty dish a local favorite. Since you can find it in any restaurant we recommend trying it several times before choosing a favorite version.
Explore Taal Volcano
Taal Volcano is the smallest active volcano in the world, its last eruption as recent as 1977. Today, tourists can take a boat ride across the lake to the village of Talisay on Volcano Island. Taal is one of the few places in the world where you can experience black sand beaches and trails on your way up the volcano. Along the way, you’ll see volcanic steam vents, unbelievable views, and will learn all about living next door to an active volcano with your guide. Once you reach the summit of the volcano you’ll find a gorgeous reflective lake nestled in the crater. The trail length is about two miles and is considered to be a relatively easy hike. Tour prices vary so be sure to shop around and pay special attention to ones that offer horseback riding the volcano as an add-on.
