For those driving you can take the South Superhighway, also

and you're 20 minutes from Tagaytay. Alternatively you can
take the Coastal Road through Cavite, a wee bit longer journey
but lots of sights to see. You can also take the BLTB buses
from Pasay, Metro Manila having a destination signboard
of Nasugbu or Balayan. Both services are frequent and ply
the route to Tagaytay City. Click

Hiring a private automobile, or an FX (a van like taxi)
with a driver included with both options, is probably the

you to your hotel, then run you around to all the Tagaytay
sights as well and will only set you back about US$25. Click
