Filipinos will always have several places already in mind when you say Tagaytay. Attractions like Sky Ranch, Sonya’s Garden, Picnic Grove, People’s Park in The Sky, and Balay Dako might be a couple of those places they’ll think first when mentioned this favorite weekend getaway. However, there are still other attractions in Tagaytay that aren’t that too popular yet. This means, when you visit, there will be smaller crowds and quieter visits.
If you’re looking for something different other than the usual tourist spots in Tagaytay, these attractions are certainly it. Don’t wait long though as these places are slowly getting attention and fast.
1. Puzzle Mansion (Cuadra Street, Brgy. Asasin) – Owned by Georgina Gil-Lacuna, this private museum is home to about 2000 puzzles with the oldest that dates old the way back to the 80s. This collection was also included in the Guinness Book of Records in 2012 as the largest jigsaw puzzle collection.

3. Fantasy World (Lemery, Batangas) – Though a little bit outside of Tagaytay, Fantasy World was supposed to be the country’s take on Disney World. But due to financial problems, the construction for this amusement park was stopped.
Today, Fantasy World operates as a photo park, and according to some reports, can be rented as a private club for some. Though this “abandoned” looking amusement park gives off an eerie atmosphere, it still has quite a bit of charm that some people might like.
