I have loads of blog back logs to post and I am gonna start with this one. Finally.
My trip buddies and I were looking for an epic place to visit which is preferably also near the city. We were thinking of a place which is new to each of us, where we can do tons of photo ops and eat lots of food. Then here it is, we found Taal, Batangas.
Taal is small town in the province of Batangas which is also known for its heritage town.
We started the trip with a lunch meal at Taal Bistro. The restaurant is located near the town market which made it accessible and easy to find. The food here is promising and affordable at the same time. Should there be another chance for me to visit this place, I would definitely dine here again.
Next stop is a place known to be the biggest catholic church in Asia, The Basilica de San Martin de Tours.
Like most basilicas, the Basilica de San Martin de Tours has its own museum. However, the must-have experience upon visiting this place is the basilica’s bell tower.
After the basilica, we went to random heritage places and walk around the town – Our Lady of Caysasay and Doña Gliceria Marella de Villavicencio’s heritage house to name some.
The day’s getting late and heritage houses are closing already so we decided to take a break before travelling back to Manila. We end the day in Taal with a cup of coffee in Francisco’s.
We got lost going to Taal (and back) a few times while hungry (imagine that), but it was all worth it. Generally, the whole day trip going to Taal and back was such a tiring but epic experience.
