No one can resist a good tried-and-tested travel tip. That's why we recently asked Deal Grocer members to share their best #TagaytayTravelTips!*
Here are just some of the submissions that have made it to our short list:
My best travel tip is to leave Manila at around 10PM, take SLEX, and exit via Santa Rosa. The traffic would have really subsided by that time, and the will usually just take an hour and a half! – Coleen Antonio
If you’re a sucker for sunsets, I’d highly suggest making a reservation at Marcia Adams’ sunset lounge—you’ll get one of the city’s best late afternoon views! The garden restaurant’s food is also another thing to look forward to. – Martin Lim
It’s great to travel on weekdays! It’s the perfect time to discover new places within the area, as you tend to get the city all to yourself. Not to mention, your travel is almost traffic-free! – Patricia Faye Javier Basa
Don’t go home without having a hot bowl of Bulalo. If you want to enjoy your meal with a view, take your pick from the number of restaurants found along the highway, like Leslie’s. However, you can never go wrong with the classic Bulalohan go-to, Mahogany Market. – Angela Del Rosario
Don’t forget to make a reservation to dine at Antonio’s Restaurant. Its head chef, Chef Tonyboy Escalante is the first Filipino chef to have made it into Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list in 2015. – Joey Toledo
And our favorite submission and winner of our Tagaytay’s Best Keep Secrets promo is:
It's possible to get to Tagaytay for free! Ride the Resorts World P2P shuttle before 3PM. Get down at McDo Tagaytay-Calamba (a.k.a. The McDo with a view). As long as you’re a Resorts World member, your card can take you places. At around 8PM, leave Tagaytay for ResortsWorld and take the members' shuttle going to your area for free trips again! Plus, a Resorts World Membership is free, too. TIP: When taking the shuttle, make sure you’re only bringing regular bags, backpacks or overnight bag/s, not luggages or suitcases, because the driver won’t allow that. – Trina Ante
