Destination Tagaytay: How To Get To Tagaytay

Tagaytay and the surrounding areas are perfect for weekend golf. The cool climate, rolling terrain, and proximity to Metro Manila add to the area’s popularity.

How to get to Tagaytay

Exclusive clubs with championship golf courses have mushroomed in recent years. Some of the best ones are the Orchard Golf and Country Club in Dasmariñas, the Manila Southwoods Golf and Country Club in Carmona, and the Riviera Golf and Country Club in Silang. Stop along the ridge at the Tagaytay Picnic Grove. It’s a great spot for the whole family, where kids can go horseback riding and kite flying. The more adventurous will enjoy the zipline and cable car. A different kind of adventure awaits history buffs at the Museo De La Salle at the De La Salle University Dasmariñas campus. See how the 19th-century Philippine ilustrado (erudite) might have lived. Feeling lucky? Head for the Casino Filipino Leisure and Entertainment Center, where you can get your fill of slot games and table games.

Garden in Tagaytay

For some pampering, visit the Nurture Spa Village. One of the “28 most relaxing spas in Asia” (according to CNN Go in June 2010), the spa uses “ecotherapy” — healing by and through nature. A weekend at Sonya’s Secret Garden and Restaurant will also do the trick. Indulge in organic vegetables, homemade bread, and dalandan (native citrus) fed native chicken. Marcia Adams’ Restaurant provides a taste of Tuscany through the food and the ambience. Pamana Restaurant serves Filipino comfort food made special. And the seafood of Josephine Restaurant makes it a Tagaytay institution. Drop by Ilog Maria for therapeutic honey-and-beeswax-based products. The soap, oils and balms are amazing.

Fruit Stand in Tagaytay

On your way back to Manila, make sure to stop at a roadside fruit stall for pineapple, bananas, jackfruit or whatever other fruit is in season.


How to Get to Tagaytay:

• Land Take the South Luzon Expressway and exit at Carmona. Or take the Sta. Rosa exit all the way to the end.
