Sky Ranch – Tagaytay Highland

After all the sacrifices in school and the overtime at work, today is the perfect moment to start another goal in the list–to travel and have fun!

It’s been a tough battle for me these past few weeks as the exams and my workload has been haunting me and its really been a crazy moment in my life.

Time to get out of the shell and spend some good time, and say hello with the sun, embrace the greenies and breathe quality air.

We started our little adventure at 5:00 in the morning to catch the bus at the Buendia Terminal bound to Nasugbu, Batangas. We planned to go to Tagaytay and have politely asked the bus driver to drop us off in the Sky ranch, Tagaytay. Regular fare at P87 while student’s fare at P70.

We were dropped off at the Petron Gas Station, just after Olivares. From there, we rode a jeepney, fare at P8.50. It was so easy to know that it is already your destination as it has a big signage along the highway.

This signage was situated inside the viccinity with souvenir stores.
We arrived at 7:00am and the sun is so up. There were no open restaurants at the time but there’s a nearby McDonald’s. And so we enjoyed the walk and the cool air to go to the other side and eat breakfast.
We went back to the Sky Ranch proper to check out if they’re already open. During weekends entrance fee is P80 (supposed to be P100 but they are in 20% off promo) and during weekdays entrance fee is P50.

And we’re ready to explore the ranch! 

Once you have this, you can go out and enter the ranch whenever you like, and explore the whole area.

Basically, the area is like star city, there are several fun rides for kids.

For kiddos, yes. But will still enjoy all these rides at my age!

The Super Viking! Mostly of the rides are P50-P80 worth.
The famous ride in the Sky Ranch is the Sky Eye. The largest ferris wheel in Tagaytay, with P150 ticket fee for 10minutes. This is the same Sky Eye as the one in Mall of Asia.

We didn’t actually ride any of these rides. It’s just so fascinating to just watch and breathe, just feeling and appreciating the place is enough for us. 
You can also do horseback riding. But we didn’t. Haha.
There are also a lot of food stalls to choose from aside from the restaurants infront.

There are shops for souvenirs! 
And the most wonderful thing and main objective is to see the beautiful creations of God.

Breath-taking view of Taal Volcano. 🙂 

Oh so peaceful and beautiful. ❤️
I think the place also do offer zipline, but during our stay we did not encounter tourists who would do zipline, we opted not too.

The point of origin for the zipline.
There are picnic huts as well, in case you just wanna sit, relax and eat (and take pictures!)

Not a crime to take lotsa pictures, yeah!

Christmas atmosphere and nature at its finest! 

Other souvenir shops from the other side of the ranch.

This place is really good for families and a good getaway to relax and just bond with friends and love ones.

If I may suggest, its better to go here in the afternoon, when Mr. Sun is not really that hot to burn your skin.

To go back to Manila, just travel via jeepney or tricycle going to Olivares Terminal. There you may catch buses going to Baclaran or perhaps dropby Laguna to see what it offers.

Nonetheless, have a happy feet!
