Tagaytay Taal Lake is near and very attractive destination

Tagaytay is a 2nd class city in the province of Cavite, Philippines. The city is relatively close to the capital city of Manila, only 59 kilometres (37 miles) away via Aguinaldo Highway, providing an easy escape for the locals from the heat of the huge metropolis. 

Tagaytay is one of the country's most popular tourist destinations because of its scenery and cooler climate provided by its high altitude. Tagaytay overlooks Taal Lake in Batangas and provides views of Taal Volcano Island in the middle of the lake through various vantage points situated in the city. 

Tagaytay is a city full of nature. The outdoor parks, restaurants, and even shopping centers take advantage of the stunning scenery by building around rolling hills and green ridges so that every experience feels like you’re still one with nature. It is the perfect getaway to enjoy different places that locals and even foreigners admire and appreciate.

TAAL LAKE is a freshwater lake in southwestern Luzon, Philippines. Occupying a volcanic crater with a maximum width of 24 km, at less than 10 feet (3m) above sea level, TAAL LAKE provides stunning views and is a habitat for many endemic species. It has an area of 244 square km and is the country’s third largest lake. Within the lake rises Volcano Island (98 feet), which itself contains another small crater (Yellow Lake) and where the volcano’s historical eruptions took place. TAAL LAKE lies within a national park and is a major tourist attraction located in Talisay. 

The lake has greenish-blue colour and seemingly orange red-coloured rock. But don’t worry, it’s safe to swim in the water as the sulfur content is very low. Some say bathing in the crater even cures skin diseases. Surprisingly, the water is not hot but it is advised not to stay in for too long. You can also enjoy horseback riding and trekking in the area.
