 People's Park in the Sky:
People's Park In the Sky

People's park in the sky is a hike up to a hill-like place wherein you can find a chapel. You can either rent a jeep or just hike uphill. There's not much a thing to do in this place though.

Picnic Grove:

A good place to have family picnic where you can rent cottages for an overnight stay or go horseback riding and play on its mini-park. There's something for everyone in the family, regardless of their age! Picnic Groove is located along Aguinaldo Highway on the way towards the Royal Taal Inn and Palace in the Sky.

You can also get a breathtaking view of Taal Lake in all its glory in this place. The main attraction of Tagaytay is the Taal Volcano, which could be seen along the edge of the outer crater

Aside from bonding with your family inside the park, there is also Eco-Trail, a long boardwalk with a hanging bridge which spans a mini-valley replete with trees, shrubs and other vegetation. This landscape makes it ideal for a 250-meter zipline and a cable car, providing the guests a unique angle for viewing the lush scenery. Even if the zipline only lasts less than a minute it is one of the top attractions in the park. 

For those who would like to try out the horseback riding, you can actually have one in this place and you may also opt for the adventure trail.

Sonya's garden:

Located in Barangay Buck Estate, Alfonso, Cavite, Philippines (near the vicinity of Tagaytay City, Philippines), one can go around the property if you’ll be buying something from the Panaderia and the Country shop. Sonya’s Garden is considered as every gardener’s haven. There are also plenty of shaded areas and benches where you can sit and enjoy the peace and relaxing ambiance of the place. The Country shop sells several souvenir items, like organic soaps from Ilog Maria, re-usable shopping bags, jewelry and other trinkets, even fresh greens and veggies from Sonya’s own garden.

Bag of Beans: 

This place is conveniently located near the Mendez intersection so you'll certainly not gonna miss it.  Another landmark would be when you start seeing vendors selling steamed peanuts which is a sign that you are near Bag of Beans.

Leslie's Restaurant:

Tagaytay is a cool place and a visit in this city would never be complete without tasting the place's Bulalo. One of the most renowned restaurant known for having the delicious bulalo is Leslie's Restaurant.

How to go to Leslie's? You can easily find the place when you go up to Tagaytay. It is just before the Bag of Beans and Sonya’s Garden. if you’re coming from the Sta. Rosa, Laguna or the South Luzon Expressway, you’ll find this sign at the left side of the road, near the area of heavy concentration of restaurants.


  1. The best bulalo in town is in Leslie's Restaurant! I miss the bulalo and they have free refill of soup, nice!

  2. and if i may add, they got best view of the lake plus the ambiance at night is spectacular.
