Cavite Adventure: Tagaytay City




Our adventure today takes us about 55 kilometers south of kilometer 0 in Manila. Tagaytay City is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the province of Cavite.


Taal Volcano as seen from Tagaytay City

Known as "The Country's Second Summer Capital", Tagaytay City's proximity to Manila makes it a frequent destination for those who are on a budget adventure or those who are just escaping the city life. Tagaytay City's unique blend of beautiful scenery and semi-temperate climate makes tourists and adventurers come back for more.


My friends and my old ride

Since my wife and I live near Tagaytay City, we have the convenience of going there anytime we want to. I, for one have been there plenty of times and experienced a lot of memorable things there. The most unforgettable one that I have was when I experienced zero visibility when I drove through a very thick mist that blanketed the city during one of my road trips. Because my car then was a lowered version of a Mazda Astina, the right side fell on a meter deep gutter which momentarily trapped the car. Lucky for me there was only a few cars (and buses) on the street that day.


My wife and I with our new ride






Tagaytay City would always have a place in my heart (and travel list) because that is the only place that I would want to go to when I'm stressed and I'm at my lowest point.


Well at least when I visit Tagaytay City now, I won't mind going into a thick mist or falling into a meter-deep gutter because my new ride would probably handle all of those. (Except a cliff plunge of course.)







Getting there:
There are buses (Crow buses) bound directly to Tagaytay City from Manila. Another place to find Tagaytay bound buses are in the Coastal Mall terminal. The rotunda of the city would serve as the entry point to Tagaytay City. Jeepneys would be your primary mode of transportation in Tagaytay. Each ride costs P15.

  2. My Hubby & I are already booked at Hotel Dominique in Tagaytay this September for our Anniversary and I am searching for bus & jeepney fares on google and i found your blog :) this really helps a lot, I just have a question if you gonna ride the jeepney you will just ask if they can get you to the place you wanted to go too? for example "Manong Pink Sisters Convent nga po?" will that work? LOL my first time to commute in tagaytay before we rent some cars but it's kinda expensive nowadays. Thanks in Advance!

    1. Hi Jengie! Advanced happy anniversary to you guys!
      Yup that's correct most Tagaytay residents are kind enough to give you info on places you want to visit. You could ask the jeepney driver if he's passing by your desired destination. If not ask him what to ride. =)

    1. Hi Angelique! Great choice of destination to start your adventure! May sakayan papuntang Tagaytay sa Park and Ride. Pero usually van nalang. If you want to ride a bus then head on to Coastal Mall near Baclaran. May mga bus dun na papuntang Nasugbu. You could ride it and tell the conductor to drop you off at Our Lady of Lourdes. =)

      Delete
    4. Hi again Angelique! After sa Our Lady of Lourdes here are my options for you...
      1. Sky Ranch
      2. Paradizoo
      3. Bag of Beans (for lunch)
      I'm sad to say na walang place na di matao sa Tagaytay unless it's a week day.
      Last mo nang puntahan ang Picnic Grove and People's Park since nasa kabilang side yun ng Tagaytay.

      Regarding sa Mass schedule on a week day I'm not sure but I know na bukas ang simbahan. =)
      I hope that helps Angelique. =)

    1. If that's the case then I highly suggest na tumambay kayo sa may Starbucks overlooking Taal Volcano. Then sa hapon you could have an early dinner either sa Bag of Beans or sa mga local bulaluhan. Then balik kayo sa Kontiki infront of Starbucks and experience the nightlife of Tagaytay. =)

    1. Hi there pal! Sorry to say but the nearest is still in Coastal Mall. If you're willing to travel to Alabang may mga vans dun sa Festival Mall that will bring you to Tagaytay thru the SLEX route. Once nasa Tagaytay ka na, you'll see the rotunda. Picnic Grove is on the left side of the city while Skyranch is on the right. =)

      Pinakamalapit is Taal Vista. Pwede mo na lakarin pero I doubt na affordable yun.
      So here's a list of affordable hotels pero you'd probably need to ride a jeep heading to Sky Ranch.
      Tagaytay Haven Hotel
      Elegant Star Apartelle
      Tagaytay Econo Inn
      Sierra Traveler's Inn

  25. Hello sir Niel! May idea po ba kayo kung may commuters route going to Anilao Mabini, Batangas from Tagaytay? Three days kasi kami nakacheck inn sa Tagaytay, plan sana namin magside trip at magtry ng diving sa Anilao. One friend suggested na kailangan pa daw bumalik ng Manila then take a Bus na paMabini, napakahassle naman yun. Thank you!

    1. Hi there! Medyo challenging ata ang side trip niyo ah. =)
      Pero sige try this one.
      From Tagaytay, look for a bus or van heading to Batangas City bus terminal. From there may mga jeepney na papuntang Mabini.
      If wala naman, may mga jeep or trike that will bring you to Talisay Batangas. From there look for a jeepney to Lipa. From there ride another public transpo to Mabini.
      Pero if gusto mo talaga maka-punta and sure shot na may direct na masasakyan kailangan mo talagang bumalik sa Pasay (Gil Puyat) dun may bus na direct to Batangas City. (Check out my blog about Sombrero Island).
      Hope this one helps. =)

      If you go to Tagaytay early like 6AM then uuwi na kayo ng 3PM kaya po.

    1. Hi there! From Sky Ranch, you could ride a jeepney going to Picnic Grove. =)
      I suggest unahin niyo ung mga destination sa area ng picnic grove then proceed sa Sky Ranch. Kaya naman po ang 3K na budget yun lang medyo tipid kayo sa food saka day trip lang.
      Sa 3K siguro ok na yung People's Park, Picnic Grove, Sky Ranch at Flower Farm. Pwede niyo rin ipasok sa itinerary ang Puzzle mansion.

    3. Well sa Picnic Grove aside from picnic areas meron din silan inooffer na zipline. =) Meron ding horseback riding. =) Maraming jeep sa Tagaytay na papuntang Amadeo or Bayan you could just ask them where you're heading and they'd drop you off there or refer you to another jeep.

      You can use the itinerary that I made here. =) It's updated naman. Kung may changes man sa prices di naman ganun kalaki.
      About sa 3K, It would be ok pero medyo higpit lang din ng konti sa pagbili ng mga souvenirs or pagkain kasi medyo mahal ang mga kainan sa Tagaytay.

    1. Hi there! There are plenty of things to try out in Tagaytay. I suggest you try going down to Taal Volcano. It's a bit expensive but it's worth it. However, check my blog about the volcano first so that you'd be warned...

    2. Hello. We are planning to go to Tagaytay (especially Sky Ranch) this coming May. I have a question when it comes to time management. Is it possible that we can enjoy all the rides there and heading up to other destinations like picnic grove, people's park etc.? And is 4500 (2pax) enough? (including transpo and meals)? We are on a day tour plan only. Can you suggest an itinerary for us with the given time and budget. Thank you so much

      Delete
    3. Hi there! Malaki na yung 4500 for 2 pax for a day tour. If Sky Ranch lang ang goal niyo then kaya ang half a day dun. I suggest you visit sky ranch mga lunch time or after ng lunch para di ganun kainit. You could spend the early hours at Picnic grove. I don't suggest na pumunta pa kayo sa People's Park unless may kotse kayo.

      Here's whay I suggest... Picnic Grove - Puzzle Museum or Residence Inn Zoo then cap it off sa Sky Ranch. Regarding breakfast, lunch, dinner there are plenty of restos to choose from. Hope this helps.

    1. Thanks so much! =)
      About the rates kung may changes po minimal lang po. It you're heading from QC meron "daw" mga buses sa Cubao that goes to Batangas. The tricky part is knowing what goes thru Tagaytay City.
      I suggest you go with the tried and tested. Head to Coastal Mall from there hop on a bus heading to Nasugbu. (Meron ding Tagaytay lang ang destination).
      I hope that helps.

    I am looking for a place na pwede sana mag-relax this weekend and I saw your blog. Can you suggest an itinerary within 9am-4pm lang po sana this coming saturday. 3k lang po kasi ang budget ko. Tapos commute lang coming from alabang. Thank you.

    1. Hi there since 3K lang ang ang budget mo I believe solo backpacking ka. Well If hangang 4PM ka lang siguro you could visit either Sky Ranch or Picnic Grove and spend your time there. Maganda yung dalawang yun kasi there are plenty of things to do there. If relaxation lang din pwede mo lang enjoying ang view and magpalamig without spending.

    5. Hi there! If you really want to reserve the room and wala kang card. You could pay throu the bank. Humigi ka ng billing statement sa hotel. Once you have it you pay cash sa bank and call the hotel up and sabihin mo yung payment OR number mo.

      Given that you're already in Tagaytay, I think ok na yung 1k for food and pasyal. Pero sobrang liit nun if overnight. Aside from that yung kain niyo is limited din sa P100 per meal.

      ok na siguro yung 3K na budget pax. Sobra pa yun kung tutuusin.
