Tagaytay is always the top choice for Philippine tours if you ask anyone living in Manila, the city capital of the Philippines. This tourist spot sits on top of the hill where its windier and colder, and offers the view of the picturesque Taal lake that is totally social-media worthy.  Going here is very convenient as it is only 2 hours away from Manila and accessible on either private or public transportation.

Batangas is the nearest coastal area in Manila where you will find beautiful beaches for swimming or diving. Taal, which used to be the capital of Batangas, is filled with history.

Another tourist spot with cold weather is Baguio City which is situated on top of the mountains of Benguet. It is once a United States’ only hill station in Asia so its rich in contemporary architecture.
