At 2,250 feet, cool and rainy Tagaytay is much loved for its scenic mountain views, misty peaks, forested slopes, and grassy plains. Best known for the Taal Lake and Volcano Island–considered the smallest volcano in the world–Tagaytay attracts many adventurers. Tagatay MICE venues and group attractions focus on its natural treasures and pleasant weather.
Tagaytay is around an hour's drive from the nearest airport, Pasay’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport, which receives carriers from many domestic locations and also major Asian destinations including Singapore, China, and Japan.
Chief among meeting venues, Tagaytay International Convention Center (TICC) is located on a 2.38-hectare property, has a 40-room hotel, and accommodates 1,200 in its plenary hall. An hour away from Metro Manila, the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP) Conference Center has a conference room for up to 500, 7 function rooms for smaller groups, and furnished cottages to accommodate guests.
MICE hotel venues in Tagaytay include the Taal Vista Hotel, which accommodates up to 1,800 in its 1,388-square-meter ballroom, 700 in its 640-square-meter ballroom, and has 10 meeting rooms for smaller groups. Also, the Summit Ridge Hotel’s 627-square-meter ballroom accommodates 700, while its lounge accommodates 120. (There is a lawn as well, ideal for large open-air events.)
Tagaytay has some of the best golf courses in the country. A day tour of the Taal volcano can be organized starting at the “Palace in the Sky,” offering the best views of the Taal Lake and volcano. From here, a boat trip to the Volcano Island leads to a lake within the volcano. Team-building activities on the island can include horseback-riding and hiking on the mountain slopes. A half-day sightseeing tour can include a visit to the San Jose church in Las Pinas to see the world-famous, 19th-century Bamboo Organ, with 800 bamboo pipes. This can be combined with a visit to a local Jeepney assembly plant, to see how the popular Filipino vehicle is built. Other tour options include visits to coffee and pineapple plantations to try local produce.
