Tagatay and talisay
Talisay Travel Blog› entry 16 of 29 › view all entries
Tagatay are a small city where people from manila use to escape the life in the city.. Well.. its not like Metro Manila , but it is certainly not cool and quiet compared to living long away from people in Norway.. Tagatay is based around 600meters (so i was told) above sealevel and its much colder here than in manila.. Its also overlooking lake taal which can be a very nice wiew if its a clear day. Most days you cannot see so far beacause the pollution and dust in the air, but locals said i was unlucky with the date i where here.
Talisay is a small town where you have to go to if you want to climb (hike is a better word) taal volcano. If you ever are in manila going down to Talisay is not the worst way you can spend the day.
Transportation problems! The public transportation here in Philippines is not the best one.. To get from Pagsanjan to tagatay i had to drive the a wan.. Expensive and crowded. Its made for 11people but we where 15 or something so it was very crowded ,but if i wanted to get somewhere i had to use this wan.
AGAIN! To get from Tagatay to Batangas i also had to drive the wan to a place where the busses stop.. its expensive and crowded.. We where 16people in the wan so it was even more crowded than the last time.
