Tagaytay: People's Park in the Sky and Picnic Grove

Spectacular view. Cool and fresh air. Lush greens. Bountiful produce. These are the few words I will use to describe Tagaytay.








It was my sister's birthday and Easter Sunday celebration when we went there. There were lots of people doing their usual weekend pasyal but that didn't stop us from witnessing the breath-taking view of Tagaytay. People's Park in the Sky and Picnic Grove are major attractions one shouldn't miss to visit when inTagaytay. Known for their popularity, people can go at ease as there are public mode of transportation available to take you there.




These places doesn't only offer amazing view of Tagaytay, including Taal lake and volcano, but also cheap finds, produce and crafts. From souvenir items down to baskets of pineapples at a very affordable price, one can hardly leave Tagaytay without these.








Our's wasn't just a normal trip to the  park, but to celebrate my sister's birthday too. So we held a picnic, exchanged some chitchats with other family members and, of course, no one left without their pictures taken.




The climb uphill at People's Park wasn't tiring. Thanks to the cool fresh air which didn't leave us sweating. For elderly people and children, they offer a jeepney ride going up and down. I was in total awe when I saw the view. Di sya nakakalula. But it will make you hold your breath for a few seconds because of amazement. God is such a magnificent Creator. I mean, the view were definitely not man-made. Maybe part of it but not all.












After few hours of wandering and picture-taking, we've decided to go to Picnic Grove  to eat lunch. The place was jam-packed with people, not only to have their lunch, but to enjoy the many facilities the place has to offer. There's zipline, cable car, henna tattoo, animal shows, etc, just to name a few.




















I felt the itch to try their zipline but since it was holiday, the price was doubled. I felt I may not enjoy nor feel the worth of my money. I spend my money na lang on getting a henna tattoo and buying souvenir items.




We didn't leave Tagaytay without paying a visit to out Lord's home. We heard mass at Ina ng Laging Saklolo Parish. We paid respect and offered thanks and praise for a safe trip and great family bonding moments. We didn't let the chance pass of buying produce like pineapples, bananas and mangoes from stores along highway.
