Tagaytay’s Sky Eye

Alright. I’ve been missing a lot in WordPress lately. So before I miss a whole lot more, I’ll go back doing  my blogger duties and post about my past trips.

Let me start my back logs with a road trip to Sky Ranch’s Sky Eye in Tagaytay.

Sky Eye is said to be the tallest ferris wheel in the Philippines, to date. It stands at 63 meters (207 ft) with 32 gondolas. Once you see this huge circling thing, you’ll probably associate it with the ferris wheel located in Mall of Asia (MOA) in Pasay City. Well yes, both are handled by the same company, just in case you are interested. Here are some of the photos on that cloudy and rainy road trip.

The whole gondola ride takes more or less 10 minutes. It’s quite shorter than we expected, maybe because we are too busy enjoying the view and posing for photos (haha).

Aside from the Sky Eye, the amusement park showcases other rides mostly made for kids –  Nessie Coaster, Wonder Flight, Mini Viking, Express Train, and Red Baron. For kids at heart, you can also try their Super Viking which is likely similar to Enchanted Kingdom’s Anchors Away (a smaller version of it).

It was a short trip, but the whole experience going to and heading back makes the experience worthwhile. There are a lot of good places to visit in Tagaytay, so if you want to drop by other places than Sky Ranch, you can conveniently do so. If you’re planning to visit this city anytime soon, I hope you’d have fun like we did.

‘Till the next blog post! xoxo

Let’s Drive To Tagaytay, Yo!

Weekend adventure is awesomely cool! This time, C-O-O-L, literally.

My buddies and I went to visit Tagaytay, Philippines – a town known for cool climate, good food, and scenic view. Upon visiting the place, we did exactly these three things that’s making the place famous.

First stop: Bag of Beans. We decided to eat our breakfast on this lovely, nature-inspired place. With ganden-ly feel, delicious food, and excellent service of the staff, the entire dining experience in Bag of Beans is a must for all the Tagaytay travelers.

Define heavenly breakfast. Yum!

Next stop: Caleruega. So we feel like we need to get some calming vibes from this cool town, therefore a church with a refreshing concept of beauty is a place to be. Caleruega is a garden with a church, with a retreat house, and with a beautiful view. Beat that! Say all-in-one.

My Tagaytay buddies. Yey!

Another food stop: Bulalo feast! A trip to Tagaytay is not complete without tasting their famous Bulalo (or beef marow stew). With a cold climate, the warmth of this famous soup is such a treat. Woohoo!

Last but not the least stop: Palace In The Sky. I’m not really sure why this place was called it’s name. All I know is staying here for sunset and looking for a great place to see the almost-entirety of Tagaytay, is perfect!

There! Had lots of fun with this weekend adventure. Hoping for more weekend adventures to come. Hopefully I’ll have another one before the month ends. Till next time!
