Tagaytay City: A City on Top of the Mountain

Tagaytay City is a mountain city located south of Metro Manila.  It is easily accessed through the South Luzon express way, Coastal road, or CavitEx, and then through Aguinaldo Highway.  It is 1-1/2 hour drive from the Metro.  Due to its proximity to the big city, it attracts local and foreign tourist to escape the humid weather in the metro.  Tagaytay has cooler weather at anytime of the day because of its elevation, just like of Baguio’s, but Tagaytay is more accessible.
