The Christmas season in the Philippines is one the best in the world, but we’re definitely missing out on the winter cold. Baguio's weather is as close as it gets, but planning a trip there? That’s a whole new adventure.
Luckily, there's Tagaytay – just a chill hour and a half from Manila, if traffic plays nice *wink wink*. November and December in Tagaytay hit differently with that crisp air, giving you an excuse to flex those Fall/Winter outfits! And it's not just the weather – there's a lot of stuff to do, like slurping bulalo, hitting up cafés, thrifting in ukay-ukay, or getting your adrenaline fix at Sky Ranch!
Sky Ranch in Tagaytay has been serving fun and amusement since it opened in 2013. There are 17 rides available that you can definitely enjoy with your family or barkada. These rides include: Wonder Flight, Super VIking, Nessi Coaster, Giant Balloon Wheel, Mini Viking, Sky Cruiser, Toy Swing, Boat Parade, Rocking Tug, Red Baron, City Rail, Bumper Car, Grand Carousel, Log Coater, Drop Tower, Express Train, and the 207-feet tall ferris wheel called the Sky Eye. Imagine riding these attractions in that fresh Tagaytay breeze. Pure bliss, I’m telling you!
Not a ride person? No worries! Sky Ranch is built on a mountain, so you're getting that Insta-worthy view of Taal Lake. Sky Ranch also has lots of gardens and greeneries, thus making your visit like a literal walk in the park.
But if you feel like having a feast in the midst of the good view and cool weather, Sky Ranch has quite a number of options to satisfy your tummy’s cravings. KFC for the fam, Kenny Rogers if you're craving roasted chicken goodness, or Oh My Greek for something Mediterranean. Japanese? Tokyo Tokyo, Tsuke-Men and Nabe are available. American feast is served at Pier at Clawdaddy’s, or get that local Filipino flavor at Kuse. For dessert, get your sweet tooth’s fill from Krispy Kreme classics doughnuts or Koomi's cool and tangy treats.
Entrance to Sky Ranch Tagaytay is PHP 100. Ride tickets are purchased separate, but you can also get the ride-all-you-can ticket if you’re in the mood to go through some of the rides over and over again. And if Baguio's still on your radar, you can make a pitstop at Sky Ranch San Fernando in Pampanga, or roll straight to Sky Ranch Baguio. These Sky Ranch branches will surely give you only #HappyMemories this coming holiday season.
