SIGHTSEEING TIPS


this week in Tagaytay August 2016

The Sky Eye on a cloudy day at Sky Ranch

Although rain showers are expected this week, one should not be discouraged because the country’s second Summer Capital still sparkles with beauty on cold, foggy, or rainy days. Tourists can hop on to the Sky Eye at Sky Ranch in the nighttime and view the city among the clouds, with the city lights more prominent than ever.
