The Highlands of Tagaytay

When the smoke emits up high on a volcano, and when the ashes fall, that must be something scary. And what's even frightening is when the smallest active volcano disrupts peoples' lives.

That was the scene in January 2020 when the Taal volcano erupted. People were frightened and put on forced evacuation. Nearby establishments were closed, and many families lost their homes and livelihood.

A year after, life is back to normal for the people of Taal and Tagaytay. The beauty and grandeur of the famous lake captivate one's soul from any distance.

The cool climate of Tagaytay is perfect for a bowl of beef bulalo and a cup of coffee with the breathtaking view of the Taal lake and volcano. I love its romantic scenery, and I'll never get tired of it. I feel so relax, and it truly heals the soul.

People's park in the sky offers the best view of Taal lake. It's cool and windy on the highest point of Tagaytay, and the backdrop is naturally stunning. Tagaytay highlands and the Crosswinds offer a Swiss-like landscape with beautiful mountains and greeneries. 

I would love to be there. It's truly enchanting!

The picnic grove is fun-filled moments with a much closer view of Taal lake. The place has changed a lot since our last family visit in 2016. More changes are in place, hoping that it won't lead to overdevelopment, but a balance of nature and city life.

A year after the lockdown, more people visit places of interest, and they deserve a great place to unwind and rejuvenate. Tagaytay is just beautiful, and the Taal lake is naturally wonderful and perfect for a weekend family getaway.

The Highlands of Tagaytay is a home away from home. It's a livable city away from Manila and will always remain to be beautiful.

What makes it enjoyable and romantic is when you share happiness with your family and special someone. It's great to make memories that last, and we'll always create meaningful moments to cherish and reminisce.
