Explore MyPhilippines: Bag of Beans, Tagaytay City

 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. For this particular visit, me and my Family came for lunch. The food is really nice! Of course coffee and dessert after lunch is a must!  It was definitely worth the travel!

Road Trip: Antipolo, Rizal

Since it is a long weekend, we decided to go on a road trip to Antipolo, Rizal. 

We have never been on a road trip to this part of Rizal, so when we were planning for a road trip over the weekend, I took the opportunity to check on what places can interest us. 

I saw several places of interest from bloggers and what caught our attention are the following destinations. 

This is a good mix of different points of interest.

Casa Santa at Jardin de Miramar

Casa Santa at Jardin de Miramar is a museum of private owned Santa Clause collection, ranging from small figurines to life-size Santa Clause. 

Visitors are free to inspect each item for a closer look and even play with them. 

This place will surely give you joy and bring back memories of Christmas.l

Mystical Cave

Mystical Cave is one of the tourist spots in Antipolo. This place is known for religious rock formations and images on its walls. The water and stone from its cave are said to heal sick people and protect you from harm. Getting to this place is fairly easy for those with very good navigational skills, but may be challenging to most.

After identifying our road trip destinations, next thing to do is to search for driving directions to these places. I used Google Maps to plot our trip. I will also provide the actual route we took to help simplify the directions in my ‘How to go There’ section.
