Though there are so many travel destinations in the country, Tagaytay still shines among the best. Named as the second summer capital of the Philippines, the province withholds one of the most breathtaking sceneries the country has ever had- the Palace in the Sky. Tagaytay is just a 2 hour-drive from Manila overlooking the various gifts of nature- animals, plants, flowers, large trees and cold weather. Coconut groves make the ridges of Tagaytay visible and classy accommodations give the visiting tourists the pleasures of relaxation and at the same time, wide benefits of enjoying the rustic magnificent view of Taal.
It may seem to you that the place is vocally dangerous because of the presence of the Mt. Taal, but it is not. In fact, Taal even decorates the beauty that Tagaytay has, even much greater than any of its attractions. The Palace in the Sky was originally made to be the visiting house of the late President Ferdinand Marcos, but the complex was not finished, until then, the ground became open to the public as a site for sight-seeing, naming it the “Palace in the Sky”.
Blooming the city of Manila the whole year round is the 5-hectare flower farm which accommodates various flower species that is suitable for any occasions. This flower farm, being one of the famous Tagaytay tourist spots, largely supplies the flower needs of the country’s capital. On the other hand, the farm stays to be pure and beautiful and perfect because of the friendly climate making the flowers roots and stems healthy.
Another favorite Tagaytay tourist spots is the shrine of St. Anne where a grotto of the Virgin Mary stands. Many people visit this place especially those who have wishes, but many people also go there just to witness its spoken beauty and of curiosity.
Indeed, Tagaytay is one beauty itself; it is truly nature’s gift.
