I had the chance of seeing Lake Taal and the volcano up close when my high school friends and I went to visit our classmate in Talisay, Batangas. We haven’t seen Emelyn for almost 7 years and we really missed her so much. She was married and already had a 4-month-old son named Markus. Her husband is in Canada and she’s currently living with her in-laws while waiting for her own Visa. Her in-laws own a resort just at the back their house which is the Tropical Jungle Resort. It is frequently visited by the local and foreign tourist especially Koreans. You can do a lot of activities there. You can rent a motor boat, go to Taal Volcano and do horse-back riding going to the crater, go swimming in the pool, go fishing and catch fresh Tilapias or just stay in the cottage, take a deep breath and enjoy the beautiful scenery up front. We stayed there for 2 days and I had the chance to unwind for a while. Sometimes, you really need a break when everything in your life seems to fall apart. Lol! Thanks for the good old friends…
Take a look at some of our photos:

  1. I just read in the news that a certain Korean named Shin Young Hyun and his companion was killed by holdapers early Monday today in Batangas. Reports says Shin Young Hyun was the owner of Tropical Jungle Resort. So sad to hear news like that. Koreans are supposed to help our economy, not to get killed in a senseless holdaping spree.

  2. I read the news as well, and to tell you the truth, it was kind of exaggerated. Mr. Shin and Mr. Rho went home safely, and they are not the owner, their just the operator…

  3. can i know the resorts room rates and packages it offers….also the contact number

  4. I guess poeple feel threatened of volcanic activities that even if the area in Talisay is in a safe vicinity far from Taal, it wouldn't be a destination most poeple would like to go to.

  5. I’d like to thank you for the efforts you have put in writing this site.
    I’m hoping to see the same high-grade content from you in the future
    as well. In fact, your creative writing abilities has motivated me to get my very own website now 😉
