Follow us on social media
During the pandemic, it's more difficult to travel to places where you need to go by plane. Because of this, Tagaytay has become one of the most popular go-to destinations during the new normal. I've listed here some of the things that you can do and tourist spots you can visit in the second summer capital of the Philippines.
But before we go to the list, I would like to answer some of the frequently asked questions about Tagaytay:
What is the easiest mode of transport to Tagaytay City?
Private transportation would be the easiest and fastest way to get here. For those who don't have access to a private vehicle, you have three other options:
1) By bus from the Paranaque Integrated Terminal Exchange in Uniwide Coastal Mall in Paranaque or via DLTB Terminal at LRT Buendia
2) By van from Metropoint Mall, Festival Mall Alabang and Starmall EDSA-Shaw
3) By private van transfer which you can book here: Private Intercity Van Transfer between Manila and Tagaytay
4) By joining tour groups which you can book here: Tagaytay Day Tour
Is it possible to do a day trip to Tagaytay?
Definitely! Tagaytay is just 2 to 3 hours away from Metro Manila depending on which point of Metro Manila you're coming from and on the traffic situation. Best to leave early in the morning so you can cover as many destinations as you want.
What are the health protocols during this pandemic?
The minimum health standard in Tagaytay City is to wear masks in all public areas, especially when you visit tourist sites. Travelers are also expected to practice proper social distancing. Hotels should be DOT-accredited and should comply with the IATF guidelines which allow them to accommodate only a specified percentage of their capacity depending on the city's Alert Level status. In some hotels, guests are required to submit a negative antigen or RT-PCR test result and some hotels require everyone to be fully vaccinated so better check with your hotel before booking. Restaurants and other eat-out places have more or less the same requirements. Some only allow 18-65 years old to dine in, some allow unvaccinated/partially vaccinated guests but only in the alfresco area, and some only allow fully vaccinated to enter the premises. So before you dine, check with the establishment to avoid the hassle.
REMINDER: Due to the current pandemic, some of the information here may no longer apply. Accessibility to certain tourists spots and activities may be subject to changes depending on the current Alert Level status of Tagaytay City. It is highly recommended to check directly with the establishments for more updated restrictions and requirements before you visit. We highly encourage everyone to follow health and safety guidelines being implemented for everyone's safety.
