Picnic Grove Tagaytay, one of the great picnic locations near Taal Lake that has always been very popular. Is it as good as it used to be? Read on to see... For a great view, ride the new Ferris wheel that is at the entrance of the Grove. After we paid the entrance fee, we stopped to buy some Strawberry Taho from one of the vendors. It was then we noticed there was no queue on the Ferris wheel so we gave it a try. Nice ride with great views…
Cloud 9 Antipolo and the Cloud 9 Restaurant is definitely a romantic spot for couples and a popular place for sight-seers. Previously called Café Nueve, it offers delectable and sumptuous dishes all made better with panoramic views as you dine in. The Cloud 9 Restaurant mostly serve Filipino dishes, made by its homegrown chef who has long perfected the art of cooking home-cooked meals such as pinakbet, kare-kare, crispy pata, and other native cuisines. This is also the reason why Cloud 9 is mostly visited by tourists and returning Filipinos who would like to have a peaceful and quiet visit in the Philippines.
Well, okay, officially the hike is rated as “easy” BUT… Because this is a semi-active volcano (you will see stream rising from rock formations during your hike) it can get a little warm of your trek during warm to hot days. On the day we went, it was HOT. At every rest-stop we passed there were hikers resting, covered in sweat. We did it the easy way (by horseback). Taking the Taal Volcano Tour by horseback is definitely worth it. Watch the video to see the difference.
