City dwellers looking for a quick weekend recreation will surely enjoy Skyranch since it has a lot to offer aside from it fun park rides and exciting activities. One thing that you shouldn’t be missed is “The Sky Eye“, dubbed as the tallest Ferris wheel in the country.

BEST TIME TO VISIT TAGAYTAY

Avoid visiting Tagaytay during the wet season from June – September since these months receive the highest amount of rainfall. If you want to experience the cold temperature of the city, we would recommend visiting Tagaytay from January to February. If you love to go outside to see nature and eyeing for outdoor activities, the best time to visit Tagaytay would be in the dry season, from March-May.
