Wanting to avoid the stress-filled city, my sister and I decided on a random trip to Tagaytay. Just an hour or so away from the city, Tagaytay is the usual go-to place for those who wants to go on a roadtrip, but doesn’t want to go too far, or for those who wants to escape the sweltering heat of Manila.
We went to Tagaytay with no specific destination in mind so we just got off the bus at Magallanes square. It was there where we decided to go to the Puzzle Mansion. We had to ask for directions from the tricycle drivers there, got on a jeep that goes to Alfonso, got off at Asisan, and took a tricycle to Puzzle Mansion.
Initially, 1-way was p60 for the two of us. Since it seems difficult to get another tricycle going back, we asked the tricycle driver to just wait for us, and he charged us P150 for both trips. Entrance at the museum is P100 per person, and every minute spent in the museum was worth it.
Sissy and I were famished by the time we finished our museum tour, so we decided to get back to Magallanes square. Along the way, however, we passed by Bag of Beans, so we asked the driver to turn around and drop us off at the restaurant. I love Bag of Beans and any reason to go to Bag of Beans is a valid reason, even if it means just passing by it. 🙂
After dinner, we were able to hail a bus right across the street that goes back to Coastal Mall terminal for P85 each (so convenient! 😀 ). Oh, and I just have to mention, the Cavite-Batangas Bus is awesome! The bus we took was new, and it has two cctvs at the front part of the bus inside.
Aaaaaand that, my friends, was how we had our quick trip to Tagaytay. 🙂
