Tagaytay (the second time around)

After visiting the Ilog Maria Bee Farm, we proceeded to Tagaytay. I've been to Tagaytay before but this is the first time that I would go to People's Park in the Sky. I was actually curious about this place because the name "People's Park" is controversial here in Davao. If you want to know the story, here's the short version: A new park was being built in Davao and there was a contest about how DavaoeƱos should name the park. The winning entry was "People's Park". A few days later, controversies sparked around the city questioning on why the name "People's Park" won in the contest. Despite the controversy and the name being soooo not unique, the park is still named People's Park until today.

Anyway, People's Park in the Sky is located in the windy Tagaytay. If you plan to go there and commute, it is best to go to their Jeepney terminal in Olivares, Tagaytay. You can find jeepneys there going to People's Park in the Sky at a fee of P17.00 per person.

Below are the shots we've taken from People's Park in the Sky, Tagaytay.

Walking uphill

Are you ready for this challeng?

Would I recommend going there? It depends.

I like Tagaytay, the cool wind despite the hot sun really amazes me. If you're fit and able to walk up on hills then you can go to Tagaytay and enjoy the view. But, it you're having thoughts on muscle strain, varicose veins, arthritis, rheumatism, and other body pains, then skin People's Park in the Sky. I recommend going to the various restaurants with good views of the Taal Lake and Taal Volcano.
