Tagaytay is likened to an oasis in the peak of the summer heat in the tropical Philippines. Together with my family we had tons of fun and I'd like to share some of the things we did and ate. Here are some of the things you shouldn't miss when you visit Tagaytay in Cavite, Philippines:

1. Eat Bulalo 

Every province in the Philippines has one or more signature dish and Tagaytay is a bulalo haven. Bulalo is a Filipino beef dish which has beef shanks and marrow bones. You have a lot of restaurant choices to choose from and most of these restaurants have marvelous views of the famous Taal Volcano. 

2. Capture the beauty of Taal Volcano

When you say Tagaytay one of the first thing that comes to mind is Taal Volcano. Taal Volcano is known for its unique form. The volcano is situated in the middle of Taal Lake and a other landforms. You can just take snapshots from afar or make arrangements to tour the Volcano Island. 

3. Visit Museo Orlina

If you are an art enthusiast or simple want to admire art then visit this art museum owned by none other than Filipino sculptor Ramon Orlina. The entrance fee is only Php 100/$ 2 and will fill your eyes with admirable works of the owner. For most of his work he uses glass but the museum also showcases other sculptures made out of other materials. 

4. Have fun rides at Skyranch Tagaytay

Skyranch Tagaytay also has a magnificient view of the famous Taal Volcano and offers a variety of rides for all ages. If you just want to feel like being a kid again while having some clean fun then this is the place to be. You can opt to pay per ride ranging from Php 50 - 150/$ 1 - 3 or just pay the ride-all-you-can ticket. I recommend that you ride the Sky Eye around the sunset that way it's not to bright and not to dark to take good photos. 

5. Gobble up some tart

On your way home don't forget to take home some delicious tart. I recommend Rowena's because it will truly be a hit. Aside from tart they also have various other sweets you could take home.
