|The van was settled for P4000 for the whole day from Manila to Tagaytay. It was supposedly only good for 12 seats but we were 15, so the driver have no choice but agreed on our terms...wahaha (|
|It was a 2 hour ride perhaps.|
Tagaytay City is one of the Philippines tourist destination because of the scenic view over the Taal Lake and not to mention the comfort of their cold weather. Tagaytay is one of the third-class city in the Philippines and is 55 km away from Manila if you pass through the Aguinaldo Highway. It would be like roughly 2 and a half hour I think from Manila if I am not mistaken with traffic. For our first stop People's Park.
|Entrance of P15. The Jeepney ride would be for P5. Not bad.|
|This view is breathtaking.|
|I did some shopping here.|
We or at least I ordered a lot. I never was expecting their viand serving would cost P150 each regardless of the kind. I was like omeegash! So, we were all so excited for the Bulalo. But I was just so disappointed with the taste..:( Actually, all of the food are like karenderia taste. But what do I expect right?, well my ex's mom does the best Bulalo I've ever tasted in my entire existence- like no kidding. I was hoping they would top that, but sadly it didn't. One thing that got me irritated are the Espasol vendors. I don't mean to be mean. I kindly told her, i'm okay, and I don't want to buy one, because I tasted one in People's Park, and it was okay. I am not a big fan of it, but she insisted, and she was at first selling it for 4 packs for P100, so some of my friends bought one set, and later when we are about to leave, they were like chasing us, and bargaining their Espasol for 9 packs for P100!!!! I was like, why would you guys want to buy that? I'm sorry. I was just ranting. I just feel so irritated that whenever I remember my Tagaytay trip, I also remember Espasol. I know it's childish, but what the heck? I'm just saying. So let's move on...weewh! We went to Picnic Grove.
|P35 parking fee, P50/pax entrance fee.|
|This is also one of their adventure park. I was just not in the mood to ride anything.|
It wasn't that a perfect ride, but we had fun anyway. At times it's the companionship that really matters. One thing I've learned and would like to advise you guys, bring your own food. Tagaytay is for picnics. That's for sure. It would be nice to be in this place and not being able to spend so much and then ends up ranting like me...lols! Anyway, every trip has its story. This sure is one of them. Espasol! My next post would be all for Summer. So excited. I missed you guys!...xoxo!
