Amid these uncertain times, people experience a considerable degree of worry, concern, and stress, particularly since they spend most of their time isolating themselves at home to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. But finally, we can take that much-needed getaway as authorities announced recently that NCR Plus shifted back to modified general community quarantine (MGCQ).
Under GCQ, food preparation establishments that offer indoor dine-in services can accommodate 30 percent of venue capacity, while outdoor or al fresco dining at 50 percent. Personal care businesses may already operate up to 50 percent, increasing from their previous 30 percent allowed capacity.
Hotels with a certificate of authority to operate for staycation may now also accept leisure bookings for individuals aged 18 to 65. As long as we follow safety protocols, taking a quick trip away from life’s hustle and bustle is an ideal way to take a breather and relax once in a while.
Luckily, a two to three-hour drive, with the help of the new Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAx), can lead you to Tagaytay, particularly if you’re from NCR Plus, composed of Metro Manila and its neighboring provinces. It offers the perfect getaway, whether for an adventure of a lifetime or just a quick escape from the busy (boring, for some) city life. Here are some of the best activities to create that vacation you have been looking for.
A Perfect Mix of the Urban and Rural Life
Living in the city can be incredibly exhausting because of heavy traffic, pollution, and stress from the environment itself. But if you want to keep experiencing the benefits of city life with all its convenience, the coffee shops, and shopping malls, among others, without all the stress that comes with it, then Tagaytay is the perfect place for you.
This city combines urban and rural life. In some instances, you will find yourself enjoying your favorite espresso or savoring a steaming hot bowl of “bulalo” amidst a beautiful backdrop of Taal Volcano.
