6 Reasons To Move To Metro Tagaytay

Atty. Ernesto Perez II of RealAttorney is a realtor, blogger, and lecturer at the De La Salle-College of St. Benilde’s School for Professional and Continuing Education (CSB-SPaCE).  In this article, he shares six reasons why Metro Tagaytay is the best place to live in the CALABARZON area.

Metro Tagaytay

Metro Tagaytay covers Tagaytay City, as well as the neighboring towns of Silang, Alfonso, Mendez, Silang, Amadeo, and Indang, as well as Ternate, Maragondon, Bailen, and Magallanes.

This article is not about the City of Tagaytay. It will be mentioned here often, but it will not be the focus of this essay.

According to the proposed Cavite Provincial Development and Physical Framework Plan 2011 – 2020, “the areas of Tagaytay, Silang, Alfonso, Mendez, Amadeo, Indang, Ternate and Maragondon comprises the third Growth Area known as Metro Tagaytay or the Tourism Haven and Food Basket of the Province. These are the top food producers in the Province and sites of some of the province’s scenic and tourism spot.”

Hello, Metro Tagaytay!

Metro Tagaytay’s territory covers the entire Tagaytay City, as well as the adjoining Cavite towns of Alfonso, Indang, Mendez, Amadeo and Silang.

Tagaytay Living - Featured 10

The term “Metro Tagaytay” isn’t exactly an official designation, although it has been used mainly by real estate developers, wedding vendors, hotels, restaurants and other business owners operating in the neighborhood.

While there are rumors that the wheels have been turning to make Metro Tagaytay official– and thereby bringing Alfonso, Indang, Mendez, Amadeo and Silang within its jurisdiction– we can only speculate on how soon this would actually happen, and more importantly, how it would affect local business.

In Conclusion

Metro Tagaytay has so much to offer: it’s got a lot of big city conveniences, as well as business opportunities, but you still have that much-needed laid-back and stress-free lifestyle that provincial living brings.

I now call this place home.  After living and toiling in Metro Manila all my life, how can you not appreciate the unpolluted Tagaytay countryside air?  You’ve got a great view of Taal Volcano and the lake, a lot of places nearby to visit, and most importantly, it’s still relatively close to Metro Manila if I need to get some business done.  Needless to say, I love it here.
