Default Tagaytay forum?

Hi all

Well I'm new to this site, but not to the Philippines

I've finally decided to settle down in Tagaytay, just come back from Phils and looked around at Baguio (lived there for 6 months but property too expensive)
Angeles (only good for visiting IMHO
I have a small house (2 storey) which I rent in Makati, but its too bloody polluted now...LOL

So Tagaytay it is

Is there a separate forum for asking questions on living in Tagaytay or do I ask here?

No idea. However if you are looking to put your feet up then Tagaytay isn't a bad choice at all. Good restaurants, nice little holiday vibe and some decent hiking indeed around the rim of the lake.

Hi Designer,

Welcome to the forum.

My wife and I have our home there. We'll hopefully be back in August. Unfortunately since we'er not yet retired, we're not able to spend an extended amount of time there. Not sure we would be able to answer many questions at this point. I can tell you from my limited experience, the weekend traffic is worse than the weekdays.

I would add, you can't beat the weather.

Hi all

Marami thanks to the answers.

Shame I cant get more responses but to those that answered salamat po

I intend to open my first restaurant there and then the next one in SM Mall of Asia

I chose Tagaytay because of the weather, and the non-pollution (but looking at HVAC quote I may stay in at weekends.)
Which one are you HEATING, or VENTILATION if its the latter then I have a genuine question concerning air con, and if the way i wanna install is viable, or will work.

I am looking for a lot, 300--1000 sq mtrs whereby I can build the restaurant with the house on it.
I saw this for sale, but alarm bells keep ringing as to why would someone build a 10 room hotel trade for a year then sell it?
Sorry cant post link until I've made 3 more posts

Anyways cheers guys for the replies

For you to run a business here, you will have to get a 13G or 9A work visa. It will also have to be majority owned by a Filipino(s).

If you get all of that knocked out. The weekends will be when you want to be at work, pulling in the coin from the tourists showing up.

If you have alarms going off AVOID at all costs. The gut feeling transcends all languages and is usually correct. Learn to trust it often here.

Best of luck!

I too am considering moving to Tagaytay. HVACman is right, the weather is unbeatable. It's like Canada in our 6 weeks of summer, but all the time . When I stayed there, we had no need for aircon. Almost reason enough to move there in and of itself. We are considering Silang just a few minutes north - any thoughts from more experienced members.

Tagaytay is definitely a good choice. Close to Manila to make a quick trip but far enough from the craziness! Right on about the weekend traffic though, especially if there's a holiday.

Aside from that, great weather (well, better than Manila that's for sure!), nice scenery, and has everything you'll need.

If you're considering getting a place, there's a lot of nice choices but do your homework. Consider the surrounding establishments, proximity from the main highway, and who the other homeowners are.

There's a gated neighborhood just off the highway past all the big establishments that's very woodsy and peaceful. The houses all have a log cabin theme so its very pretty. Price is unbeatable (the 3bedroom cabins are the business!).

Good luck!

Cheers
