Do you know why the main road of Tagaytay City is called Aguinaldo Highway? It is said that back in the 1920s, General Emilio Aguinaldo often rode horseback on that route. Of course, back in the day, there wasn’t anything there, not even Taal Vista Hotel, which was built in 1939. The credit for that indirectly goes to President Manual Quezon, who wanted to develop the area as a tourist spot, and suggested it to the management of Manila Hotel at that time. The site of Taal Vista Hotel now was then known as “ilong Kastila,” (Spanish nose) referring to the shape of the land, which locals said, resembled a nose. Nowadays, Tagaytay City is definitely a thriving tourist spot, as evidence by the terrific traffic jams that clog the aforementioned Aguinaldo Highway every weekend. If you are planning to visit Tagaytay anytime soon, you should head there late Friday night or early morning Saturday to avoid the rush. Plan to leave before lunch on Sunday to do the same. Here are some of the top things to do in Tagaytay.
