It’s a popular culture that many Filipinos and foreigners alike would like to go and visit the second summer capital of the Philippines for various reasons. The first major reason would be to feel the inviting climate of this wonderful place nestled in-between Batangas, Laguna, and Cavite provinces. If it would be played on a game, ‘survey says’ the next reason why people love going to Tagaytay is the many scenic and picturesque views surrounding the mountainous area, especially the view of Taal Lake and Taal Volcano.
Perhaps, these are just few of the reasons why real estate has been booming ever since in Tagaytay. And for more than a couple of decades, Tagaytay Highlands is regarded as the best place to set-up a weekend getaway destination coupled with luxurious living and privacy for the family and friends.
