10 Old Photos of Tagaytay That Will Take You Back in Time

Take a peek at the city before it was crowded with cars and restaurants.

Tagaytay has been a go-to for quick vacations outside of Metro Manila for longer than you can imagine. It's close proximity to the Metro, slightly cooler temperature, and picturesque views are just some of the reasons why city folk love flocking down south for a visit. Even before it was filled with quirky breakfast spots and bakeshops along every corner of the road, this city in Cavite was a favorite destination for both locals and tourists. Below, we round up some old photos that will show you what Tagaytay looked like throughout history—still as scenic as ever, but slightly less commercialized and a little more rural. You'll be wishing for a time machine so you could have seen it for yourself.

These black-and-white photos of Tagaytay throughout history will take you on a trip back in time:
