Lots of beautifully preserved Spanish-era houses that now serves as museums. If horse-drawn carriages are on sight instead of modern cars, it would have been a total disconnection from the present world. A quaint, small town perfect for history enthusiasts.

Even without looking at the map, one won’t miss Taal Town. You will be greeted with rows of century-old ancestral stone houses, or bahay na bato, the moment you enter this rustic town.

The tourist office might have a walking tour pamphlet. This would be helpful in finding the mansions. It is always easy to find the Church -- in the main square.

Hi, there are jeepneys that passes around the town and will bring you to a bus terminal going to Manila. You may also ask the locals or the jeepney drivers for more info. Hope this helps. :)
