Tagaytay City – a tourist destination right outside the bustling metropolis and home to some of the most popular vacation sites in the Philippines has become the go-to place when traveling far is not an option. With its lush landscaped gardens, flower farms, golf courses, horseback riding and fishing sites, quaint coffee shops, and dining establishments, this idyllic destination is perfect for those who are in dire need of “me time” and those who simply want to explore.
Here we have three different activities that blissful wanderers may enjoy whenever they find themselves in the windy city.
Me, Myself and I
Nothing beats a day dedicated just for pampering yourself. With our busy schedules and what seems to be a never ending confluence of deadlines, a trip to the spa is exactly what we need to relax our bodies and minds. Tagaytay is known for its state-of-the-art spas but QiWellness Living is probably the most prominent in the area. This Chinese tea and bath house is known for its Qiharmony or dry signature massage that applies reflexology and acupressure, done while you are fully-clothed. It also offers full body treatment using rose scrub, mask and silk cream and spa packages that may be done in their ‘yin yang’ dipping pools, steam and shower.
From its budget-friendly cafes to upscale restaurants – Tagaytay is the place to be if you want to satiate your palate. Most dining destinations in this city offer a good view of the vantage point of Taal Lake and Volcano. Imagine dining to your heart’s content while enjoying a scenic view on the background. Some of the must-try restaurants are Restaurant Verbena, Bag of Beans, Antonio’s Garden and Pamana Restaurant.
Although Taal Lake and Volcano is not located by the ridge, it is no surprise that people flock to this geologic wonder. After all this island within a lake within an island cannot be missed. Pack your bags, ready your stamina and quench your thirst for adventure with a 45-minute hike to reach the crater of Taal with your family and friends.
