    Nice lake. Took a boat ride to the center island but tourists aren’t (yet) allowed on it because apparently it’s still active. Lots of small fish net farms on the lake. Views from Tagaytay were impressive and weather is cooler up along the crater rim.

    An enormous Maria statue one hour drive from Batangas City. At the time we visit they allow us to come close but the building was closed for renovation. There was nobody else which maybe was due to bad weather also. Anyways. Impressive but surely more impact when allows into the building and up.

    Well this was nice and people were saying the rosary while I was there. It is NOT handicap assessible at all and your have to walk about 400 meters up the hill. It help me cool my angst after the gjuards would not allow us to dive up the hill. When I complained they said "oh yes you can drive". This was not true. The Philippines try to modern BUT it kis NOT. I am still puzzeled now ehy the country is listed in the top ten for retirees. The traffic in Manila is the worst I have experienced and even the taxis will not take you into the heart of the city after 12:00 or 1:00 P.M. The traffic is worse at night and you can get lost as my "professional" driver did even though he had gps BUT did not use it. So be prepared - chapels and shrines give you a break from the stress of getting there and the best way to see the country and the shrines is by driving so you can stop along the way and eat, shop, and view a wonderful environment.

    If you are looking for a cheap escape from the city, Layag layag is definitely a go to place. Although if you have qualms with a big crowd and elbow to elbow tents, this place is not for you.
    Layag layag was an experience for me and my friends since our reason for coming was to chill and listen to the waves and be free off the city during our restday over the weekend.
    We left Manila 11 taking a different route as advised thinking it would be faster. So wheb going to Nasugbu, take the Nasugbu routes in Buendia and Pasay, not the ones in Alabang, it will take you forever before you arrive Nasugbu. BTW, bus ride is about P120 from Buendia to Nasugbu. In Nasugbu, ride a trike going to Papaya. Trike usually costs 350 for 4 people. When you reach papaya, contact Kuya Rudy, for your boat ride to layag layag and should you decide to go snorkling, cave hopping, cliff jumping. Boat ride to the island is P200 two way and 300 each for the activities. Most of the residents of barangay papaya was very friendly and accomodating.

    Kuya Rudy's number is (0916) 699 6497. Check out some of the photos taken in the beach.

    Though this is considered a beginner's climb, I say you still need to be physically prepared for the climb and not take this mountain lightly. It's quite a pleasant climb except for some muddy parts because we climbed after a rain the previous day. The climb is divided into 6 stations. Each station of the climb can be a stopover with food offered by the locals. Check this one off your bucket list if you are not for the hard core mountains.

    The ppace is still a go to travel by a lot of Filipinos. The location is perfect for family getway. However, I hope they control the number of businesses being built. Too much balsa. Too much bangka. Dangerous for children swimming. All in all it was a niceplace to go.

    A place where you can get the total relaxation you need is in here! The staffs are very accommodating. The farm has swimming pools, function halls and air-conditioned rooms. Great place for team buildings, seminars and training.

    La Virginia is good for children but not for those who like to have awesome instagrammable photos. Simply because a lot of things are random. They have different theme for each pool area. It doesn't feel classy but again if you have kids then you'll like this place. I guess it's also nice with barkada at night. The best feature for me would be the beautiful view of Taal.

    This church is a must-see and you can really feel the presence of God during the mass. Its very clean and since it is in a rural area, you can really enjoy the fresh air, inside-out the church.
