No doubt that your breath will be taken away at the very first sight of spectacular sceneries here. Just get to the peak of Tagaytay Ridge to catch the utmost view of the whole captivating scene into your eyes: magical Manila Bay in the North, stunning Taal Lake in the South, and romantic Laguna de Bay Lake in the East. Farther lie some tranquil and peaceful fishing villages filling up the scene to the horizon.
One of the most distinct panoramic views of Tagaytay is Taal Lake with Taal Volcano in the middle of the lake. Inside the volcano is another small lake named Crater. Here people call Lake-in-Lake Taay.
Don’t forget to rent a boat to be mesmerized and bath the in the magical light at dawn or sunset. The view is incredibly beautiful when you look around to see the wilderness then look down to enjoy the water reflecting cloudy blue sky in mist.
On the hillside of Taal Lake lie numerous rustic houses and all have the whole view of Taal.
Adding to the spectacle of Lake-in-Lake Taay, along the terrain of Tagaytay are the lush greenery of forests and grasslands in harmony with the blue of sky and water. Who knows? You might catch a glimpse of some rare wild species in the mountain resort.
For the sake of fresh and cool climate and convenient transport, the rich in Manila really prefer to have a second house in Tagaytay to enjoy relaxing hours on weekends.
The accommodations here are invested with modern and expensive hotels in term of the increase in the number of tourists.
You’ll probably have chances to enjoy the sceneries from the view of these hotels or if you want to explore the scene of spectacular terrains in Tagaytay by your real eyes, multiple cable cars are always available.
The ideal time to capture the most poetical view of Tagaytay and explore the Volcano is in May when the weather is amazing with the purely blue sky.
Don’t miss such a great chance to take a 50km travel from the Volcano to Taal village – The Heritage Village. Here you admire and listen to the stories about the old houses with Spanish architecture from the 300-year period of the colony.
