Excuse me for the overused blog title but I can only think of 'romantic' as the perfect word to describe the weekend we spent in Moon Garden, Tagaytay. I was scouring the web for accommodations in Tagaytay that are not too mainstream but are still accessible for a quick birthday getaway and Moon Garden seemed to be the best choice.
A 1.5-hour bus ride from Buendia to Balibago, a 45-minute jeep ride from Balibago to Olivarez Plaza, and a quick jeepney ride from Olivarez to SVD road were all it took for us to reach Moon Garden. Sure, it may seem like it was one hell of a journey just to get to this place but going as early as 5am saved us from the weekend traffic.
If there's one thing that'll definitely test the patience of whiny tourists like moi, it has got to be an overnight camping trip in a place 4 hours away from Metro Manila and where there is no electricity, no cellphone signal, and no comfortable rooms to spend the night in (duh, it's camping! Silly me). Yiz, I'm talking about Nagsasa Cove (slash the alternative to the more popular Anawangin cove).
