Tagaytay is one of the most-visited tourist destinations in the
Philippines, famous for the Taal Volcano. The volcano is unique in
that it sits on an island in a lake, and has another lake within
its vast crater. The views from the ridge on the access highway to
the volcano are legendary and breathtaking. As Tagaytay itself is
the favoured 'summer capital' for Filipinos wishing to escape the
capital during the unpleasant summer heat, the area provides plenty
of recreation opportunities and good hotels and restaurants. Other
sights in Tagaytay are the 'Palace in the Sky', an unfinished
complex originally meant to be a home for former president Marcos
and now used as a viewpoint and park; and the huge flower farm,
abloom all year round, on a slope at Barngay Guinhawa.
