Tagaytay City, Philippines is one of the most popular destinations in the country, and there are actually some reasons why. For one, Tagaytay gives you an awesome view of Taal Volcano. It also has cooler weather which most Filipinos crave being in a tropical country. And now, there are a lot of establishments which all members of the family would enjoy. There are malls, restaurants, cafes and a whole lot more. But even with the ‘urbanization’ happening in the city, there are still some areas which value traditional practices and would like to keep it that way.
One of these is the Nurture Wellness Village. Jon and I were fortunate to have been invited to this serene place. I have to admit though; I am not your typical farm-loving lady. So on our way to Tagaytay, I wasn’t expecting much. I thought I’d let Nurture Wellness Village surprise me. And boy, did it!
