5 Reasons Why Tagaytay is a Great Place to Stay At

As a British tycoon once said, there are three most important things about properties: location, location, and location.

Tagaytay City is the South’s alternative to Baguio City. It offers the same ambiance and cool climate but is more accessible to tourists and motorists. The travel time is only an hour and a half from Manila, approximately 56 kilometers away. The city is frequently visited by locals and foreigners to take advantage of the cool breeze and magnificent views.
Tagaytay, compared to other metropolises where the midpoint is a marketplace, a walkway, or a distribution center, takes pride of the Taal Volcano’s sight in the heart of the calm waters of Taal Lake —a volcano within a lake, within a volcano within another lake.

FACTS ABOUT TAGAYTAY:

1. Tagaytay was derived from two Tagalog words “taga” and “itay” which means “to cut” and father.

These words were put up together from a story of a father and son who were attacked by a wild boar while hunting. As the animal reached the father, the son cried repeatedly “Taga Itay!”

The shout was heard in the nearby area and became a source of commotion in the place. Later, it is called Tagaytay.

2. The City has a perfect view of the world’s smallest active volcano, Mt Taal.

This natural wonder is significant to the city’s people. The view of Taal Volcano in its entire magnificence is overwhelming, especially on a clear day. Peaceful mood approaches whenever the fog enfolds the hillsides surrounding the city.Local and foreign visitors are always astonished by the sight and it is one of the reasons why they keep on coming back.

7 Things to do in Pangasinan Aside from the Counting the Hundred Islands

Located in northern Luzon, Pangasinan is practically famous for the Hundred Islands in Alaminos but aside from the said tourist attraction, Pangasinan still has a lot to offer, even more so that Boracay is closed. The Ilocos-Pangasinan-Zambales area is most likely to fill in. Here are a few things you could more than enjoy in the land where salt is made.

hundred islands1. Balungao Hilltop Adventure, Balungaosuperman-zip-2

Before getting yourself strapped on a safety harness, you still need to endure one long and steep climb up the mountain. There are two ziplines on the peak, one is 620m for those who want to get down fast and the other one is 1.4km, that could last for more than a minute for you to enjoy the rather exciting view, that is if you can manage to keep your eyes open throughout the swoooosh. Also, there is an ATV rental at your disposal when you want to roam around the terrain.

2.  Lingayen’s Architectural Masterpiececapitol1

The province’s capital has been around since the World War 2, and remnants of the unfortunate event are still pretty much visible in the area. Outside, the city hall is just as magnificent on the inside. The local government unit’s building is a tourist spot itself. Inside is a mini-museum of the city, where everything you need to know about Lingayen could be found.

3. Power Kitingkite-1

Looks easy enough? There are two stages of power kiting in Pangasinan, you need to make the huge kite fly–like really fly then follow the wind towards the sea, step on your boards, and voila that is power kiting. This is not for everyone though, kiting is not for everybody, some people cannot even make a small kite fly.

4. Visit the Death PoolDeath Pool

This crater was because of both earth and water natural process, this spot is where two large waves from two different currents meet, it fills the ditch, making it a saltwater pool. Only professional or amateur swimmers can actually take this, nobody knows how deep the hole is, therefore, safety is a must when visiting the Death Pool

5. Salt Sea Farm, BolinaoDSC_4618

In the year 2017, tourists take an unusual detour to watch farmers harvest salt. A 1993 study conducted by the Nutrition Center of the Philippines showed that salt from this town, combined with those produced in the towns of Bolinao and Bani and Alaminos City, totaled 74,765 MT, the highest salt production by a province in the country for that year.

6. Paddle at Balingasay, Riverthe Enchanted Cave, Bolinao

Paddle through the country’s cleanest river. The waters of the river of Balingasay lead to the Enchanted Cave, where somehow it is Puerto Princesa in Pangasinan.

7. Watch the Sunset

 

Laois Beach right after sunset.Being located in the western part of Luzon, Pangasinan took sunsets to the next level. Manila Bay could not even par. Perhaps Thanos actually missed a Pangasinan Sunset Brochure when he decided to go to Benguet.

Top Filipino Tweets About Thanos Visiting the Philippines in the Avengers: Infinity War

It has already been a week since the premiere of the recording breaking phenomena movie, the Avengers: Infinity War, the fruit of ten long years of collaborated Marvel superheroes, spearheaded by Iron Man (2008). The movie broke every single gross record worldwide last week, and it is basically about our favorite Avengers and Guardians saving the whole lot of the universe from the mad Titan, Thanos.

Fast forward to the end of the movie, there was a scene featuring the misunderstood villain watching the sunset in a deep solace that hyped everybody especially the Filipino fans.

The titan did state his plans of resting, “watch the sunset” after “all this” referring to the war and his goal of wiping half the universe for the other half to survive and thrive, ensuring mankind will not face extinction just like his home planet has become.

Thank God for the talented Photoshoppers,

Or let us just stick with the fictional truth, Thanos was a humble farmer that loved his planet and let us turn everything to economics this time.

And perhaps the most important truth one yet,

Whatever reason Thanos chose the Philippines to chill and mope because of his loss, it is a good example. Even the most bad ass villain needs a break too, why not follow his example and travel now.
