Tagaytay Roadtrip 2016: Picnic Grove, Tagaytay City

roadtrip to tagaytay 2016

This is such a spontaneous roadtrip to Tagaytay actually. We’ve been lemming to climb up to Baguio for weeks now but it’s a super long drive so we keep on pushing the idea to climb up to Baguio City aside. Since Earvin has a lot of free time this week, we decided to just head over to Tagaytay to kind of experience the Baguio weather and have a sip Tagaytay’s infamous Bulalo at night.

We head out to Picnic Grove but we didn’t really brought any food. lol. We just walked around the park to take in the beauty of nature Tagaytay has to offer. There’s two zipline’s at Picnic Grove and the photo above is the first one you’ll see upon entering the vicinity. It’s longer than the second one.

You have to pay entrance fees if you want to walk around the park. It’s 50php per person and 35php as a parking fee. The parking fee varies depending on the type of vehicle.

Earvin being his goofy self at the hammock. But I can’t blame him because that’s such a pretty nice view to relax. And relaxing on a hammock with that view is just perfection. You had to pay for the hammock too, it’s for rent at 20php per hour. lol. Nothing’s free nowadays people!

They call this wooden bridge a hanging bridge but I don’t get the idea because it’s not like those hanging bridge I usually see at the movies that dangles through the wind. Haha!

It’s kind of warm when we got there and I was sweating like crazy while walking around Picnic Grove. It was sad that the we aren’t welcome with a chilly and cool breeze that we’ve been lemming for but the beauty of nature doesn’t disappoint. We had to make a few stops just to take the beauty of nature in and stare at the scenery of blues and greens. It’s so relaxing!

If you want to take a picnic in here, you have to pay for the cottage. It was kinda sad though that despite all the fees the tourists had to pay, the Picnic Grove isn’t as clean. On our way to the cottages, there were lots of garbages on the sides of the pathways left by the tourists.

Can’t put all the blame to the management though because it’s a huge park and I’m pretty sure it’s not easy to clean considering the number of tourists who visits everyday. So to the tourists, please be responsible and take your trash with you when you leave.

These pine trees reminds me so much of our Baguio trip last year. Oh, Baguio, still dreaming of you! Craving of strawberry taho and all the affordable but sweet and fresh strawberries.

Take the beauty in. You get a nice view of Taal Lake and Taal Volcano at the Picnic Grove. The fees you have to pay is worth it. I can’t explain how pretty the place is except for the trash. It is just so beautiful and believe me, the photos we took doesn’t do justice to the scenery itself. You really have to see it in person.

I find this blonde horse so cute!! Actually, there’s this Mini Zoo inside the Picnic Grove but since this post is as photo heavy as it can be already. I’m just saving that post for next Sunday. All I can say is we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the mini zoo. 🙂

    It definitely is. A lot of tourists and locals usually go at Picnic Grove to have picnics and bond with their families. 🙂

    It was really gorgeous and to be honest, these photos doesn't do justice to the beauty of Tagaytay. You really have to see it yourself to appreciate it even more. 🙂

    Ahh I miss this area of Tagaytay. The last time we went there was down the lake and climbed up the volcano. It was fun though. Great pictures of the picnic grove and the hanging bridge.

    There really is not much of places to go to at Tagaytay except to enjoy to cool weather. Picnic Grove, I went there last year pero up to the parking lot only. Ex wife took a quick look but the place was not clean so we did not bring the kids there anymore. We went elsewhere instead.

    We’re planning a trip up to Tagaytay. Though we’ve been there a few times we still haven’t been to Picnic Grove. Looks like there’s plenty for us to do. It’s sad to hear about the trash. Hopefully we have a clean as you go law soon!
