I've been hankering to go to Tagaytay for sometime now and found the perfect excuse when Drew said he was coming to town. We immediately put things in motion and in just a few days we were roaring down to Tagaytay.
One drawback though about going to Tagaytay is the heavy traffic you might encounter on the South Super Highway. I remember once it took us three hours from Cabuyao to Bicutan when it just usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes from Bicutan to Sta. Rosa. We were lucky that day because we didn't experience any heavy traffic to and from Tagaytay.
First stop was Picnic Grove since we wanted to check out the famous Tagaytay zipline. It was a very short line but we still wanted to try it out. The cost though was a whopping PhP200 per head, per way! Since there wasn't any thrill to it compared to the zipline at Davao's Outland Adventure we decided to forego riding the zipline.
We were quite hungry and thought it would be great to check out Sonya's Garden since none of us have gone there. It was quite a long way from Picnic Grove and we were surprised to see a lot of cars already parked! There was an ongoing wedding reception and another one was scheduled in the afternoon. We went around a bit and got hungry. We didn't have a reservation and the waiting time was quite long so we decided to move on.
I didn't know that Antonio's branch at the main road already closed so we had a hard time looking for it. We had already given up but luckily found our way to the main branch. The prices weren't as steep as Sonya's Garden buffet lunch. We were quite disappointed though with the food, but found the place quite nice.
We were about to leave when a parade trapped us inside Antonio's. It was cute though, but we had to take another longer route back to the main road. Also passed by the famous Mushroom Burger. Too bad we didn't get to check out the plantation at the back of the store.
Last stop was at Starbucks so we could check out the Taal Volcano at sunset. We hung out for awhile longer and then headed home.
