Things To Do in Batangas, Philippines

1. Explore Taal Volcano

This small but terrible volcano is one of the best places to visit in Batangas. Not only because of its scenic view, but the activities that would bring you closer to the mountain. Here, you can go horseback riding, boating across the volcano island, and of course, climbing to the crater of the lake. Since it’s only 311 feet, it is not difficult to climb. This is also the reason why it’s known as the smallest active volcano in the world.

These difficult steps will require you to exert so much effort to reach the top. Although hiking this mountain is challenging, the view at the top is very rewarding.
