6 Things To Do When in Batangas
6. Go Hiking!
For those seeking an adventure—Taal, Batangas is the perfect destination. After taking a 30-minute boat ride across Taal Lake, you can hike atrail to reach the top of the volcano.
Tip: Hike in pairs because the area can be steep and rocky.
5. Go Horseback Riding!
If hiking isn’t your thing, don’t worry. There are other ways you can experience the beauty of the great outdoors. Saddle up and get ready to go horseback riding, for example! If you’re an animal lover, this is a great chance to make new friends, too! Don’t worry if you’re a horseback riding newbie, though. A guide will be with you throughout the entire trail.
Tip: Whether you’re hiking or horseback riding, bring a facemask or anything to cover your nose and mouth because the area is dusty due to volcanic ash. Do not forget to bring a hat, umbrella and sunblock to protect you from the scorching heat of the sun, either. Bottled water is also a traveling must-have!
