Tagaytay Picnic Grove

It's our first time as a family to travel, many thanks to Cebu Pacific’s piso fare and to our relatives in Novaliches, Quezon City wherein we have saved a lot from this trip. 

Our first day's itinerary was to go to Tagaytay Picnic Grove. It took us 2 hours and a half from Novaliches, Quezon City using private transportation. We went there before lunch so we where kinda hungry but good thing we bring along chips, loaves of bread and drinks on the way. There are lots of parks in Tagaytay but we headed to Tagaytay Picnic Grove since its cheap. Entrace fee is at PHP 50.


We stop by at Alamat Restaurant for lunch. There are no other restaurants inside Picnic Grove so we had no choice since we are all very hungry. They serve Filipino food there. We ordered a super combo meal good for 6-8 persons (includes Tilapia fish, soup, fried chicken, bicol express, pork, 1 bottle of soft drinks and rice). We paid PHP 1,000 for the combo meal we chose plus PHP 100 since we added two extra rice (rice is PHP 50 per serving). If on a tight budget, I would suggest to bring lunch when going to this area.

We strolled the place after lunch and it was amazing!!!!!!!!!! It was breathtaking to see Taal volcano from the background.

If you want a bit of adventure then you can go and try the zipline worth Php100 one way, Php200 for two way ride per person

and the cable car is worth Php200 one way and Php300 two way ride per person. There is only one cable car in the area so you have to queue if there are lots of people visiting the area as well.


I’ve never tried to ride a horse before, so I took this opportunity in Tagaytay. Riding a small horse is worth Php150 and Php200 for the big ones. If you only pay for the horse you will definitely not enjoy it since it will just circle around a certain area.

So if you want to take a picture while riding a horse and having Taal volcano as a background, you can try the horse trail worth Php150. 

We also stopped by small stalls selling souvenirs. T-shirts with Tagaytay prints selling price starts from Php100, keychains for 3 pieces are worth Php50 and they also sell other stuffs like wallets and bags with Tagaytay prints on them too. 


We decided to go home by 5:00 pm and had dinner at Jollibee Congressional Avenue.
