Red Butterfly Travel Series: Tagaytay

Standard

Dubbed as the Philippine’s second summer capital (next to Baguio). It’s a place to relax and unwind, and to enjoy the view of Taal Volcano. What’s great about this place is it’s only an hour and a half drive (more or less depending on traffic conditions) from Manila.

WHERE TO STAY:

There are many places where one could stay in Tagaytay depending on your budget. Here’s a list of the budget-friendly ones.

  • Royal Taal Inn – You have to book early (more than 7 days) to avail of their cheapest rates. All rooms have a view of Taal Volcano.  Rates start at 2,500 PHP (54 USD)
  • Tagaytay Econo Inn – Rates start at 2,000 PHP (43 USD).
  • MC Mountain Home Apartelle – Rates start at 1,990 PHP (43 USD). The way going to and from the parking area is scary though.
  • Casa de Carlo – They don’t accept walk-ins. You have to have a reservation. Rates start at 1,800 PHP  (39 USD).
  • Mi-Jo Hotel – Rates start at 1,800 PHP (39 USD)
  • Viewpoint Inn and Restaurant – Rates start at 1,200 PHP (26 USD). The restaurant closes early (around 8pm). There’s a nasty rumor about this place though. I’m not sure if it’s true. Here’s the link: Viewpoint Warning
  • Keni Po Rooms – Rates start at 1,200 PHP (26 USD). They have a small swimming pool that’s very inviting.

PLACES TO GO TO:

  • Pink Sisters’ Convent – My closest friends are devout believers, so whenever we go to Baguio or Tagaytay, we always swing by this convent. You can buy cookies here.

WHERE TO EAT:

Bali Seafood Paluto has private KTV rooms as well.

Tagaytay is also the place where you can buy customized wood furniture! It’s just such a great place. I could live there.

  1. I love Tagaytay! It’s my dream to put up a house there. 🙂
    Thanks for the details! I’ve never stayed overnight in Tagaytay even if it was our place to escape during college. 🙂
