Travel Tagaytay City

Taal Volcano is reputed to be the world's smallest and yet most active. It stands on its own island amid a landscape of ash and cinder.

Tagaytay, considered as the country's second summer capital because of its crisp and cool climate all year around, is a treasure box of pleasure points in by itself. At nightfall, one sees the lake sparkle with the pinpoint lights of fishing boats. It is a perfect picnic spot. Here, the Department of Tourism (DOT) and the Philippine Tourism Authority built Picnic Groove, a public park in the city which generates public patronage through user fees and the sale of low priced goods, thus contributing to the industrial growth of Tagaytay.

Tagaytay, however, is more than a picnic haunt. The place has given rise to many congregational houses and retreat centers. It is also conductive to spiritual meditation, that is earned yet another title for being the "Center of Spiritual Retreat."

Thus, the masterpiece of nature that is Tagaytay is a not to be missed item in a tourist itinerary. It should always include a visit to the Volcano Island, and its enumerable side spots.

Tagaytay City, located 2,500 feet above sea level enjoys a cool and invigorating climate characterized by a relatively low temperature, low humidity, and abundant rainfall. Average temperature is 22.7 degrees Celsius. For this reason, Tagaytay with its cool weather, balmy winds and foggy mists is called the "second summer capital" of the country after Baguio City.

Visiting Lucban, Quezon

The Philippines has many interesting places to explore. Let me share with you our experience in visiting some of them......

Relaxing Weekend in Lucban, Quezon

Last June, my family had a wonderful stay in Lucban. It's a 3 1/2 hour land travel from Manila passing through many scenic spots of Laguna and Batangas or Rizal. Lucban is known for the "Pahiyas Festival" celebrated every 15th of May in honor of San Isidro Labrador, Patron Saint of farmers. Some of the famous products in the area are the "Pansit and Longganisang Lucban", we tried and liked the flavorful meat sausages of longganisa and unique taste of pansit hab-hab with vinegar sauce.

Lucban is a quite town, a nice place for unwinding not too far from Manila. One of the recommended resort/hotel here is the Piknikan sa Batis Aramin Resort where you can go camping, swimming, boating or just relax and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings. It is situated at the foot of the majestic Mt. Banahaw, a short walk away from Kamay ni Hesus Healing Center and Villa Dolorosa Grotto - home of Fr. Joey Faller (the healing priest).

It's a great adventure visiting Lucban and definitely we will be back for a more memorable Family Trip Experience.
