Taal Volcano is located about 60 km (about 37 miles) south of Metro Manila. Last major eruption was reported back in 1965 that affected villages in the surrounding area.
This is a good day trip from Manila. You can take public transport fairly easily (you have to ask people)
We got a bus from Coastal Mall bus terminal - 75 pesos
Then a tricycle down to where the boats are - 200 pesos.
There were only two of us, but you pay for the boat as they wait. We got the price down from 2,500 to 1,100 and in addition paid 100 pesos each 'environmental fee' on the island.
It's an easy 40 min walk up, it's dusty due to the amount of ponies hooves.
The sight of adults on small ponies that were malnourished and struggling to carry one or two adults really ruined it for us. It was horrible to see.
I don't know how people could ride them seeing the condition of the animals.
It was also an easy 40 min stroll up a well trodden path.
The size of the ponies were suitable for children under 10 years.
On such a fertile island there is no reason for the animals to be badly treated.
For that reason I do not recommend this trip.

Yes it is another church but the history that is associated with this building is part of it charm. Also if you like photography you can get some very nice shots of the interior and exterior of the building. Take you time be respectful, after this is still a church where the local go to worship.
It does sadden me a to think that the Catholic Church and the Vatican have so much money and this poor historical building is in need of some TLC to help it stand for many years to come.

The hike leaves to a road up from Philpan Resort. Close to the starting point you should get a 50 peso permit, although they don't always notice you when you go up.
First road, then after 10 minutes you need to take the path left up, there is a wooden sign for "THIS WAY GULOGOOD BABOY".
Then you have another 45min up, if you are fit, easy to find the route, there are signs. You need to pass some "huts" with people living in them, they sell you Mountain Dew with 20 Peso. There will be other hikers as well.
The way back is a bit steap so don't go there during rain. It gets very steap and slippery.

Milea Bee Farm is not not your typical, manicured farm. You will be visiting a small farm dedicated for the propagation and care of various species of honey producing bees. It is situated in a secluded area with no neighbours and without electricity, and it's a five minute walk from the parking area. Visitors will be having a guided tour to see the bees in their habitat. We have the Italian Bees, Philippine Native Honey Bees and different kinds of Philippine Native Stingless Bees. You can have a taste of honey, fresh from the bee hive; know and see the different honey producing bee species; know the sources of nectar and pollen as well as edible flowers; discover the relationship between bees & flowers; and how bees are closely related to the food chain. It will be an entirely new experience which gets you much closer to nature. Milea Bee Farm is only open to visitors every first Saturday of the month. Please note that this is not a resort and we do not have a restaurant though we serve food using farm produced ingredients with prior arrangement. Hope we could share to you why bees are important and how you can lend a hand in our campaign and the worldwide concern to help save the bees.
We just planned to go to this bee farm without knowing something, and I just thought this is just a bee farm, wherein there is only bees, but when we start walking into the narrow way to farm the surrounding is wonderful it was full...MoreWe teach visitors our way of farming and beekeeping. Your visit gave us the same opportunity but also opened our eyes to other learnings that you shared. Thank you for dropping by and we hope to bee with you sometime soon.

This is a really lovely walk. I got a jeepney from Lipa City to the little town where the walk starts. Then I walked (you can tricycle taxi) towards where Google maps said the start was. Along the way there is a stall (looks a bit dodgy as not sign posted/official looking) where you pay your 20pesos entry fee and get a guide. I'm not sure if you have to have a guide but it would have been quite hard to find the way without him. He spoke very very little English but was very attentive at knowing when I wanted to rest or turning around if it sounded like I slipped. Things I wished I'd taken: WATER!!!! And a change of clothes. It's wet season now so I got super sweaty and wish I had a clean set of clothes for after a shower at the end (I think the shower is 45pesos). Also water - there is one water stall near the base but nothing else. I did the rockies trip which was 450pesos for the guide fee. It took about an hour of a very steep ascent. This is a really love walk.

This museum features two floors of exhibits featuring the life and works of Apolinario Mabini. There is an ample parking space and grass covered grounds that is ideal for picnic. There is no entrance fee and the museum staff are very friendly and accommodating. There are souvenir items available for purchase at the lobby.

The entire place seems small, very historical, peaceful and very old. You can reach all the market, plaza, Basilica of St. Martin, Caysasay Church and their little commercial area by just walking. Roads are narrow similar to those of Intramuros. The place is great but there's so little to do. The main attraction is the Basilica of Saint Martin, a must to visit for everyone.

This lake is the deepest in the Philippines.
In this time we tried to inquire where could be the best take off point to traverse the lake to the island volcano. We were preparing for a group tour so i have to get the details. The other choices could be the viewing and take off at Tagaytay but we have to make the shortest and the less expensive trips.
Here in this side of the lake could be the best start off point.

Also known as the Our Lady, Mary Mediatrix of All Grace Parish. The church is located few kilometers from the city center of Lipa City in Batangas Philippines.
This is a Carmelite-led Monastery. The compound is relatively big, with different sections -- meditation area, candle and prayer area, convent, office rooms, garden, elevated prayer open area, the main church, and a big parking space.
Prepare to get stuck in traffic to and from the place, as the Lipa City traffic may not be cooperative the day you visit the place. If coming from the South (Bicol or Lucena), take the Tiaong-Lipa road or the Padre Garcia-Lipa road.
