City dwellers are always on the lookout for weekend getaways and things to do to relax from a weeklong list of To Do’s and Meetings. Although it was a slow and long ride, our visit was well worth the time to unwind and learn at
and then have some fun and discovery at the Residence Inn. Paradizoo Theme Park
, Tagaytay takes about an hour by car and at least 2 hours by bus. When you reach Tagaytay, drive towards the direction of Alfonso and Calaruega, Batangas. Look for the marker indicating a turn to Anuling. From there, it’s a 5-minute ride to Paradizoo. We missed the turn and going back took us several attempts before finding the right landmark. There may be several ways going to Paradizoo. We used the road also leading to the Flower Farm, which was a long ride from the highway. If commuting, tri-cabs can be hired for a special trip to Paradizoo for Php100-120. Manila
While walking (and Tomas was running, er, pulled downhill by gravity) I saw this beautiful fallen flower. It was good to know it was an African Tulip. African Tulips lined the edge of the vegetable garden and provided shade and comfort making us stop by a picnic table to just enjoy its sight.
I just realized that this facility is a great place to unwind and sneak away from urban pressures. For busy moms, it is leisure to just look around without worrying to hurry to your next destination. I am looking forward to return to the park with Hosei and Ditto. Despite being a lover of the ocean, Ditto will appreciate going to Paradizoo.
I am very much thankful to Evy, who was very helpful in giving directions to the park and also for coordinating a seat so Tomas and I can join their ride back to
. Also happy to meet new friends and catch up with other Media Bloggers. Tomas was especially attached to Daddy Flow! Manila
