TAGAYTAY TOUR: People's Park in the Sky

3

Letters are missing :D
One of the many attractions in Tagaytay is the People's Park in the Sky. This is located in one of the highest places in town. So, this was our next stop after checking-in at Mar-a-Lago Pension House whilst having a very quick rest.

Going to...

From the pension house, we walked through the entrance of Ridgeview Subdivision. From there, we waited for a jeepney coz its more convenient than trikes. Jeepneys for that route are not that hard to find. Fare costs P8.00 per passenger.

The Place...

Entrance fee is P30/head. I've once read in a blog that there's a P10/pc vegetable lumpia sold outside of the park. The blogger recommended it so I tried to find the seller and lucky me, I did. Bought 2pcs of lumpia with vinegar sauce. Oh boy! That was fantastic, "uberly" delicious. I would also recommend it to everyone who would like to visit People's Park. BF even bought additional 2pcs before we left.

There are jeepneys offering rides from the entrance to the park itself however, we refused because it would be an additional expense and it's not that far either. It's better to walk/hike thus, taking a glimpse of the environment and watch the breathtaking views before you reach the destination.

Breathtaking views

The place is nice. The air is cold, fresh and relaxing. We hurriedly went to the mountain/rocky area where you can see a very nice view of the Taal lake. I'm a scaredy cat, you know. I am afraid of heights. But I need to control it and stand in the rock because the view in there is spectacular. Feels like your almost in heaven and reach the clouds. Its one of those moments that I have realized how great it is to travel and explore new places. I also love greens, the environment so this one's really special to me. We strolled around the park, taking pictures in all corners of it, hahaha. The best place in the park was at the terrace area. The wind blows hard and it is soooo cold. I hugged BF tightly to lessen the cold("chansing2x"). I so, so, so love BF.

The Verdict

A must-visit tourist attraction in Tagaytay. Always include this to your itinerary if your planning to go to Tagaytay. Just a quick note though, the building seems not well-maintained. Railing, roofs and ceilings are rusty; you might get tetanus - just joking. Walls, cemented chairs are dirty. But nonetheless, the surrounding is clean - good enough for sightseeing.

  2. you're welcome. Tagaytay is one of the best places I've been to so far. I would also recommend you to visit Bohol and Dumaguete, both places makes you feel closer to nature. :D
