I don't want to waste old memories so I'm doing another back post :) Last 2009, my friends and I went to Laiya, Batangas for an occulat inspection of prospective resorts that we could stay in for our departmental planning.
This will be a 2 part post because this post is about our occular inspetion and part 2 is the departmental planning itself :) We ended up in this area of Laiya which was tranquil, clean and relaxing
I guess the previous visitor went shell hunting and left these on top of the stone fence thing
There were plenty of coconut trees and it was such a relief to have them there because we were there at around 11 am which was really hot because the sun was high up. This is my friend Ernest who came with us :)
We came to Laiya during the non-peak dead season meaning there aren't much visitors therefore, it was almost empty. We hardly saw anyone else.
But that made the place all the more peaceful, you wouldn't want to leave anymore. But there are of course, parts of Laiya that are very populated by locals and tourists but this side was surprisingly left out. Maybe because of the rental price?
There were hammocks that we could rest on
And this one is called a Nipa Hut, or the "Bahay Kubo" where we can rest, eat or just sit in. That's Crystal, my other friend who came with us
It was evidently a provincial areas as there were cows here and there roaming or resting :)
Crystal and Ernest found a swing and relived their childhood days by using it :)
After Laiya, we stopped over Tagaytay City to eat, and admire the view of the Taal Volcano. The Taal Volcano is small and active, and the crater is underwater :) The lake surrounding it is called the Taal Lake and many fishermen set up fishing spots around it to catch the Tilapia Fish.
Tagaytay is a wonderful place. It's a city in the Cavite Province just above Batangas and 2000ft above sea level which is why it's so breezy here that people visit often during the summer.
