Last month, my boyfriend and I went to Tagaytay. Our trip was quick because we had to go back to Manila the next day. Thankfully, we were able to do everything we planned in just 3 days. But right now, I wish we could’ve stayed longer. I miss the cool air and the peacefulness of the place. Life in the city is just so stressful.
If you’re coming from a place outside Manila, just like us, and you plan to go to Tagaytay, the cheapest option you have is to take public transportation. So, this is my attempt at being a helpful blogger. Haha!
Here’s a quick guide on how to get there:
1. From the airport (in our case, NAIA Terminal 4), take a cab going to Uniwide Coastal Mall Bus Terminal. Fare would cost about P200-P300. It’s very near, but the cab driver would surely complain about the traffic and he won’t take you there if you don’t pay him ‘more than enough’.
2. Ride a bus going to Tagaytay. Fare would cost about P80. Non-aircon buses are cheaper though, but I suggest you take the air-conditioned bus because it’s gonna be a long trip. The photo below says 1 hour & 22 minutes, but it actually takes 2+ hours.
3. You can get off at the Olivarez Plaza Bus Stop and then ride a pedicab/tricycle going to your hotel/inn. In our case, we stayed at Keni Po, which was conveniently near the bus stop. However, a tricycle ride doesn’t come cheap in Tagaytay. The minimum fare is P30/head.
And that’s about it! You can do whatever you want from there. According to my research (or mere Google-ing), there are other ways to get to Tagaytay. Check out this list.
Here’s how we spent our time in Tagaytay:
I really really really want to go back. Have you been to Tagaytay? Feel free to tell me all about it! 🙂
