Tagaytay Thrill

6:49 pm Miss JHENZ 51 Comments



It was just a quick weekend getaway from the busy city life and my favorite bully person took this chance to take me to Tagaytay for an overnight stay and experience zipline first hand. I am pretty much thrilled with the thought of being dangled how many feet high from the ground and enjoying the view of trees and mountains while the wintry wind kissed my skin.


The stunning (almost) sunset view at Picnic Groove Tagaytay is solely enchanting.


Wohooo! I made it! No traces of being petrified huh?!


Tagaytay escapade wouldn't be complete if you won't pass by the leisure park - Skyranch!
Same thing - first hand experience :) But this time I am more than brave riding all the rides this amusement park has to offer (bragging tone)


The next morning, right after we ate our breakfast, since we still have few hours before hotel's checkout, we went to People's Park. It was almost an hour away from Potter's Ridge Hotel where we stayed overnight. As they say "The park was converted from an incomplete mansion, known as the Palace in the Sky built during the Marcos Era"


It was sudden, but noteworthy! Truly a "bucket list unlocked" moment!

  2. Awesome. I don't have a fear of heights but I do of most things. So much so that the first time I ziplined, I nearly cried! This looks so awesome - because it was different when I did it in Alaska.

  3. This looks like an amazing trip! I've seen different zip lines before, but never a double one like that! I've been on the Dragonsbreath one in Haiti, but I'm not sure I could do one with someone banging against me like that lol!

  5. I haven't been zip lining in my life the entire thought of it scares me. I do admit though it might be something I am willing to try, especially since you made it look like it was SO much fun. Bucket list maybe?
