Thumbs up I'm living in Tagaytay now

Hello,

I just saw this post while browsing. I want to connect with people who lives in Tagaytay. I moved here 4 months ago and still adjusting from city life to country living. I'm working from home and rarely see people outside. The place where I lived, near Woodsborough, has less than 20 residents, the rest are house caretakers.

My problem with the place is.. people are not mindful enough to throw their rubbish everywhere. I spent my mornings and afternoons trimming my lawns and cutting grass -2 vacant lots beside me and one on the front. People would stop by and say "what the heck is she doing?" It looks foreign to them that someone is cleaning up.

The weather so far, summer - it's dry and hot like in Makati minus the pollution, now it's rainy season and looking forward on cold months. The coolness of Tagaytay is already dead. I rememeber when we were kids where we can see lots of pine trees and and the weather was 14 to 16 degrees C. Those pine trees where replaced by Ayala Malls.

Came across this thread while looking for info on Tagaytay. Appears rather old & tried except for the recent boost from diditalchic. Perhaps others can also help to reinvigorate it.
Can anybody provide info regarding current conditions in Tagaytay. I'm planning to visit soon as I'm looking for a long term retirement residence. Would interested in hotels choices, apartment/home rentals and meeting other expats.
Many Thanks

Gazz welcome to the forum and I hope somebody can give you an update but I don't think you're going to find too many of us expats living in this region unless we are well off or still working. You're basically going from one tourist trap to another, do you want to save money? Lol, you do realize that they have banks, malls even in the Provincial area's? Anyway good luck.

From me also Gazzalee welcome and enjoy. You hit the nail on the head, digitalchic is on the ground, is Filipino so I'm sure will be a wealth of information, ask away and you will get positive returns. You can also start a new thread more specific to your needs and see how that goes.
As always plenty of online research is a great thing but definitely boots on the ground and tasting the dirt wins every time. Good luck and hope you get some constructive info here.

Cheers, Steve.

M.C.A. Many Thanks for your reply and prospective on Tagaytay.
From my limited research I had formed a very different opinion of the place, rather than being an 'Expensive Tourist Trap Hopping' as you suggest I had thought the place might offer an affordable retirement location, with many retired expats enjoying clean air and a grand vista.
