WHAT'S THE BEST TIME TO GO TO TAGAYTAY


If you really want to enjoy the cold Tagaytay weather, then the best time to go to Tagaytay is during the cooler months of the year, that is, from November to February. It may seem like a good idea to go during the summer months of March to June, but the temperature is really almost the same as that in Metro Manila—hot and humid. It's actually better to go during the rainy months of June to October, as it does get really cool in Tagaytay during those months and the chances of encountering a poetically foggy Tagaytay is also high. The only drawback, of course, is you'd have to be toting an umbrella with you all the time.



ESSENTIAL INFO FOR TRAVELERS


● Currency is in Philippine Peso. USD 1.00 is about PHP 50.00.
● ATM machines (more than twenty) are readily available along Tagaytay's main highway.
● Filipino or Tagalog is main language spoken in Tagaytay, English coming in second.
● Type A (two flat vertical pins) is the electrical outlet used in Tagaytay
● A light jacket is usually enough for a tour of Tagaytay during the cold months. Bring a thicker one if you plan on staying overnight. If you're going during summer months, a shirt is more than enough as it really doesn't get that cold.
● It is generally safe in Tagaytay. Crime rate is pretty low. You may encounter touts on a couple of tourist places offering Taal boat tours, but they're really not that persistent.
● In cases of emergency, there are a lot of hospitals and clinics in Tagaytay.



HOW TO GET TO TAGAYTAY


Tagaytay City is located fifty-five kilometers south of Metro Manila—one of the reasons why so many tourists do a Tagaytay daytrip from Manila. It is easily accessible by air-conditioned public transportations via buses and vans from city terminals around Metro Manila. Driving to Tagaytay City by car is also quite easy.


Going To Tagaytay By Bus
○ MANILA TO TAGAYTAY BY BUS ○ TWO TO THREE HOURS TRAVEL TIME ○ FARE FROM PHP80.00 +/-

Besides the San Agustin EDSA Rotunda terminal and the Nasugbu Terminal in Buendia, there are three other main public bus terminals in Metro Manila where you can catch a ride to Tagaytay. The first one, which has been closed previously, is the Park & Ride in Lawton, Manila. The second one is at the South West Integrated Provincial Transport Terminal in Uniwide Coastal Mall, Pasay City, this is a temporary terminal and would soon be closed by MMDA as they slowly transfer the service to the third place you can get a ride to Tagaytay, HK Sun Plaza, which is also in Pasay City.

● DLTB BUS CO. - Buendia | (0916) 123-4567 | Trip starts at 4:00 AM
● LORNA EXPRESS - Uniwide, HK Sun Plaza
● SAN AGUSTIN - EDSA Rotunda | 3:00 AM to 11:00 PM

Going To Tagaytay By Transport Van

○ MANILA TO TAGAYTAY BY VAN ○ 1.5 TO TWO HOURS TRAVEL TIME ○ FARE FROM PHP180.00 +/-

Taking a van or FX is another alternative in going to Tagaytay. Although it is much more expensive than a bus, travel time is faster since it goes through SLEX and bypasses the traffic-ridden roads of Cavite. Its terminals are located at the EGI Mall near the LRT Gil Puyat Station (Taft Avenue cor. Buendia, 6:00am to 8:00pm), StarMall Mandaluyong (EDSA cor. Shaw Blvd.), Metropoint Mall at Edsa Rotunda, and at the back of McDonald’s at the Edsa-Taft MRT Station.


Going To Tagaytay By Private Car

○ MANILA TO TAGAYTAY BY PRIVATE CAR ○ ONE TO 1.5 HOURS TRAVEL TIME

Driving to Tagaytay City via private car is easy enough. Drive through SLEX and take the Sta. Rosa Exit. From there, it’s a straight drive to Tagaytay City. As you arrive at the Olivarez Rotunda, turn right to go to the restaurants in Magallanes Square and turn left if you want to visit People’s Park and Picnic Grove.



HOW TO GET AROUND IN TAGAYTAY


Tagaytay Public TransportationThe main mode of transportation in Tagaytay is the jeepney, it’s main terminal located at Olivarez. Minimum fare is at PHP9.00 but since tourist spots in Tagaytay are quite a distance away from each other, do ask the driver how much the fare is to your destination.

There are no taxis, Grab, or Angkas in Tagaytay City. The closest thing they have to a taxi are the tricycles. They used to be relegated to the side streets that connect to the Tagaytay-Nasugbu Highway, but you can now hire them to take you to almost anywhere you want to go to in Tagaytay City.

To orient yourselves, make the Olivarez Rotunda as your guiding point. Coming from Manila, turning left will send you to Picnic Grove and People's Park; heading straight, to Taal Lake; and turning right, to the main tourist areas of Tagaytay City--including the tourist spots in Nasugbu, Batangas.



WHERE TO STAY IN TAGAYTAY


Tagaytay City is replete with numerous high-end hotels and inns that can accommodate the A, B, and C crowds—yes, a Tagaytay budget staycation is entirely possible. They have huge five-star and boutique hotels for those with deep pockets, they have beautiful bed and breakfasts for mid-level tourists, and inns and hostels for thrifty backpackers.

SAMPLE TAGAYTAY ITINERARY & TRAVEL BUDGET GUIDE


A day trip from Manila is enough to cover most of the tourist attractions in Tagaytay City, but extending overnight is definitely better as you get to experience the night life at the restaurants along the Magallanes area. Nothing beats having coffee or beer in the evening with the cool Tagaytay weather and the moonlit Taal as your backdrop.

in extending overnight, you would also have the option of visiting the Taal Volcano, which is accessible via the town of Talisay in Batangas. For this Tagaytay itinerary and travel budget guide, the majority of the second day’s expenses are from the Taal Volcano tour. And yes, It is quite expensive. So, it’s really up to you if you want to proceed with it or simply stay at Tagaytay itself, have a food trip and enjoy its cool weather—which is infinitely cheaper. Whether you decide on staying overnight or just have a day tour, it would still definitely fit your Tagaytay weekend getaway.
   
And as always, I made this Tagaytay travel guide with the cheapest expenses in mind—the lodgings are the lowest priced I found on Agoda, the food are all based on having meals in carinderias, and the transportation costs would have you riding jeepneys. Indeed, if you want a Tagaytay budget staycation, then here it is. If you, however, have a bigger budget, I would definitely advise on eating on the more famous restaurants in Tagaytay I recommended below. Part of the enjoyment of going to Tagaytay is actually eating out.

  4. Very nice guide, Christian. Salamat sa pagpromote sa bayan ko hihi! I'd include LZM, Pancake House (the steak/beef is of better quality in that branch, I tell you), Sonya's Garden and the tiny panaderia near my place called Junil's (24-hour pandesal) to the list of eateries. Also, a short day trip to beaches of Nasugbu from Aguinaldo Highway would be great for those 3 day weekends :)

    am planning to take a van to tagaytay on a friday afternoon.

    does this mean they aren't found there anymore? :(
    thanks!

    Replies
    1. Hi Anne, as far as I know, the vans from Buendia that goes to Tagaytay are already out of service. There are however buses near the area that serves the Tagaytay-Nasugbu route. What you can do is check out the vans if they're still there, if they're not, just take the buses right across the street. Good luck on your Tagaytay trip and let me know how it turns out. :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi, I'm not really sure what's the earliest time the buses for Tagaytay leave from Coastal Mall. Just to be sure, you might want to head over to Edsa Rotunda below MRT Taft, where they start at 4am. They usually drop Tagaytay tourists at Magallanes Square (in front of the Tagaytay Ridge where Starbucks is located).

      Regarding your PM, I recommend around 8pm for going back to Manila. Not that much commuters by that time and no more traffic too. :)

    1. Hi, for a clearer understanding of Tagaytay's layout, check the map I posted above. What you can do is start from the farthest from the left (when facing the lake) then work your way to the right. So, People's Park first, then Picnic Grove, then Starbucks Coffee (Magallanes branch), then lunch at the nearby restaurants along Starbucks (Leslie's is the usual choice), then Paradizoo :)

    1. Hi Justhine, I'm not sure where the terminals are for vans going back to Manila from Tagaytay. My guess is at the Mendez area. My advice, take a bus going back to Manila. Much easier, since you can get one right in front of Starbucks Magallanes, and cheaper.

    Replies
    1. Most of the places I listed are relatively near Casa Alegria. Are you bringing a car with you? Your hotel is just a bit out of the way since it's not on the main road. If you have a car, then that wouldn't really be a problem. If you're commuting, you just have to make a bit of an effort. I'm pretty sure there are tricycles that can bring you to the main road where you can catch a jeepneey to get to the tourist spots in Tagaytay.

    Many thanks,

    Donnielyn G.

    1. Hi Donnielyn, if you're coming from Manila, I suggest you book here (Taal Hike ). They have sharing options. This also saves a few hundreds since you won't have to go to Tagaytay, pick up is in Manila. After the hike, just ask the driver to drop you off to Tagaytay, if you want to stay in Tagaytay

    1. Hi Mitch, the buses bound for Tagaytay doesn't run 24 hours daily. As far as I know, the last trip is at 10pm. But just to be sure, please contact the bus operators on their landline :)

    1. If you're coming from the airport, just ride an airport bus bound for MRT Taft, and at the back of McDonald's they have buses going to Tagaytay :)

    1. Yes, there are jeepneys feom Skyranch to Picnic Grove. From Skyranch take an Olivarez jeep, then at the terminal, ride a People's Park jeep.

      For restaurants near Picnic Grove, I highly recommend Cafe Voi La.

    1. Hi Lester, you can just flag down jeepneys along the highway to go to these places. Just ask the driver where you're heading before going in just to be sure. :)

    1. Hi, I'm not sure if the vans going to Tagaytay will actually reach Sky Ranch or even the SMDC Condo, your best bet is to ride the bus bound for Nasugbu. But please correct me if I'm wrong. :)
