Just south of Manila, Philippines, about an hour and a half drive, you will find a place where locals and tourists go for relaxation. Tagaytay City is situated more than 650 meters above sea level. The Taal Volcano is the main attraction of Tagaytay City. Since Tagaytay City is located on a mountain ridge, it is a good place to have a breathtaking view of Taal Volcano and Taal Lake. Tagaytay City has also a great panoramic view of the neighboring provinces.Tagaytay City is considered as a haven for locals and tourists because of its climate. Situated on the mountaintop, Tagaytay City is a splendid place for vacation and dining hangouts. Fabulous food is one thing that Tagaytay City’s specialty restaurants offer.
