Things to Do in Tagaytay City on a Weekend.

Tagaytay City

Considered as one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Philippines specially local tourists living in the nearby cities and provinces due to its pleasant cool weather. Well known for its breathtaking Taal Lake view, visitors keep coming back to this place not only to get a glimpse of the view, but also to have a taste of its local food like bulalo. Aside from the view and the food, there are still a lot of enjoyment and fun things to do here on a weekend like we did.

We had a quick visit in Tagaytay, one weekend, which was more than an hour drive from our place, Bacoor City, Cavite (we left the house at around 9AM). We attended a Sunday Mass at Our Lady Lourdes Parish. (We missed the 10 AM mass since we arrived during the homily so, we waited for the next scheduled mass at 11:30)


Located just beside Ayala Mall Serin, this is the most popular church in Tagaytay. The church has a beautiful garden landscape, candle chapel where mass goers light colored candles. It has a large free parking area but still not enough for the mass goers during the weekend.

Address: Km 56 Aguinaldo Hi-way, Brgy. Silang Crossing West, Tagaytay City, 4120, Philippines

Mass Schedule:

Sundays: 7:30 AM, 8:30 AM, 10:00 AM, 11:30 AM, 5:00 PM, 6:15 PM. 7:30 PM

Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays: 6:00 AM

Saturday healing mass scheduled at 6:30 AM, 12:00 NN and 5:30 PM.

While we were waiting for the next scheduled mass, we bought some of our favorite puto bumbong and kakanin outside the church. Puto bumbong is a type of Filipino purple rice cake which is prepared by steaming ground purple rice mixture inside a bamboo tube. This is known to be available only during Christmas season, but here, it is being sold all year round. Price: P30 each if you opted to top it with white sugar, or P 40 if you want muscovado sugar.

Puto bumbong P 30 per pack
Delicious assorted kakanin (rice cakes) 3 pieces for P 100.

Mcdonalds Tagaytay

We had a quick bite at Mcdonalds for lunch. This branch of McDonalds is the best and the most beautiful in Cavite simply because it has a vantage point of Taal lake.

Stunning view of Taal Lake at McCafe. This area is always full of customers considering the scenic view of the lake.

McCafe is located at the upper level and is a separate store for the regular Mcdo fast food. It serves frappes, iced coffee, teas, chocolates, pastries and cakes.

We headed immediately to Tagaytay Highlands right after we had lunch.


Tagaytay Highlands is a luxury community where you will find the best leisures and activities in one place. Surrounded by lush green (mostly pine trees) with the breathtaking view of Taal lake, this is the most scenic and gorgeous place in Tagaytay.

The Banquet

Our last stop was at The Banquet where we had our dinner since it was already 6 PM. The restaurant serve satisfying Filipino dishes. Prices ranges from 800 to 1000 pesos for three persons.

Of course, we bought some Tagaytay’s specialty (buko pie and tart) at Amira’s pasalubong available inside the Banquet.

Our Tagaytay weekend getaway ended here.

Thanks again for reading!

God bless always!
