 Bag of Beans, Tagaytay City Bag of Beans is one of the must visit places in Tagaytay City. I am witness to how Bag of Beans has grown from a small coffee shop to an established dining place that it is now today.  Bag of Beans has also opened several branches along the Tagaytay City tourist stretch with six branches as of this writing. Bag of Beans caters as events venue and is one of the preferred wedding venues in Tagaytay City. Bag of Beans is also now into Bed and Breakfast accommodation.

Public Transportation via the South Expressway Route






There are different routes and several modes of transportation for going to Tagaytay City. 

This guide will focus on How to go to TAGAYTAY CITY from MANILA using the Public Transportation via the South Expressway Route. This is your Travel Guide to Tagaytay City.


PUBLIC Transport: SOUTH EXPRESSWAY Route


If you are coming from the Manila or somewhere from the northern part of Luzon, this is somewhat the most preferred route. This is because the route is quite simple to follow.

This travel will come in two stages. One from Manila going to the Balibago, Sta. Rosa Complex and another trip from Balibago to Tagaytay City.


Simplest Way to Balibago, Sta. Rosa Complex


The simplest way is to go to the JAM Bus Terminal along Kamias-EDSA. They have a trip coming from this terminal all the way to the Balibago, Sta. Rosa Complex / Terminal. With this route, you just have to pickup the pace from Mantrade-EDSA as listed in Stage 1: Mantrade-EDSA to Balibago, Sta. Rosa Complex (start from step 5). Then, from Balibago Complex / Terminal, you just need to follow the steps mentioned in Stage 2: Sta. Rosa to Tagaytay City.


Another way to Balibago, Sta. Rosa Complex

Another way is coming from Mantrade-EDSA. Since it will be difficult to start from where you are exactly located right now, then this guide will start from Mantrade-EDSA, which is in a way the entrance to the South Expressway, from EDSA. If you are coming from Manila, then you may just use Mantrade-EDSA as the point of origin for your travel.

This travel will come in two stages. One from Mantrade-EDSA to Sta. Rosa and another trip from Sta. Rosa to Tagaytay City.


Stage 1: Mantrade-EDSA to Balibago, Sta. Rosa Complex

  1. From Mantrade, take a Bus with a signage that says going to Balibago, Sta. Rosa.
  2. Just to be sure, verify with the Bus Conductor if the Bus is going to the Balibago, Sta, Rosa Complex. By the way, if you are not familiar with the Bus Conductor, this person is the one collecting the fares from the passengers. Normally they are wearing uniform representing the Bus Company.
  3. When the Bus Conductor makes the round collecting the fares, tell him that you will alight at Balibago Complex / Terminal in Sta. Rosa. You won't get lost as this is where the Bus will be parked.
  4. Travel time from Mantrade up to the Sta. Rosa will take around at least an hour. Well, this depends on the traffic condition in the South Expressway.
  5. If you are keen on monitoring landmarks to help you estimate how far you have gone, please take note of the following South Expressway exits. Counting from Mantrade: (1) Merville Exit (2) Bicutan Exit (3) Sucat Exit (4) Alabang Exit (5) Susana Heights Exit (6) San Pedro Exit (7) SouthWoods Exit (8) Carmona Exit (9) Mamplasan Exit (11) Sta. Rosa Exit (12) Balibago Terminal.
  6. Once you are in the Balibago, Sta. Rosa Complex / Terminal, the Bus will be parked safely and everyone will be requested to alight the bus.


Stage 2: Balibago, Sta. Rosa to Tagaytay City

  1. Before you alight the bus, please inquire from the Bus Conductor where the Jeepney queue is going to Tagaytay City.
  2. Take the Jeepney and you are on your way to the cool and scenic city of Tagaytay.
  3. As you cruise along the Sta. Rosa - Sto. Domingo Road, you can again monitor your travel by taking note of the following land marks. You will pass by the following land marks as you travel. Laguna TechnoPark, Georgia Club, South Forbes, PNP Academy. When you see a market and several stalls selling fruits, the jeepney will turn to the right going towards the Tagaytay Rotonda.
  4. When you reach the Rotanda, this section will already have several restaurants and place of interest along this stretch. The left side will be overlooking the scenic Taal Volcano. You can take note of the places and alight whenever you feel comfortable with the place you choose. List of places of interests are listed in another blog entry. Please go check it from my blog. Places to go in Tagaytay City.
  5. This trip will take at least 45 minutes to at least an hour from the Baligo, Sta. Rosa Terminal.
  6. Several jeepneys traverse the main road from one end of the town to the other side.
