Have you ever noticed some people sweating profusely in hot weather underneath their double layered clothes? Or have you ever caught someone shivering in shorts unable to bear the cool and windy weather? Knowing what to wear to any vacation spot is vital as you wouldn’t want to be caught unprepared. Better yet, inappropriate attire may be an even bigger hassle which is why we listed a few reminders on what to wear in Tagaytay.
Contrary to popular claims, Tagaytay is not as cold as visitors claim it to be, especially during hot summer days in the city. The sun can still get intense, specifically during the mid-afternoon sun, which makes the cool climate deemed useless. We can’t forget that Tagaytay is still part of a tropical country despite its altitude. Night time during the summer months, though, offers a completely different atmosphere as the cool breeze starts to pick up all over the city. Those who are not used to chilly weather may need to bring a light jacket to keep them warm, but to those who are attracted by cool climates would do just fine with a t-shirt, pants and maybe a shawl or scarf to accessorize your outfit up.
The months of December, January and February provide a different climate as the weather can get chilly all throughout the day. Bring a light jacket, cardigan or sweater to bundle up in or layer up so you’ll feel comfortable touring around the city. This is also the case during the rainy months of the year where Tagaytay experiences abundant rainfall. Rain jackets and umbrellas would be of use during these times. Don’t bother bringing winter clothes as you won’t need them at all.
Different activities in Tagaytay call for their different appropriate attire. Wear closed shoes when horseback riding, shoes with straps when zip lining or comfortable rubber shoes when trekking. Some activities may require being exposed to the sun so make sure to bring sun block for protection despite the cold weather. Wear something light if you are going to engage in strenuous sports or activities or bundle up a little if you’ll be exposed to higher altitudes and wide open spaces.
Weddings and anniversaries are abundantly held in the cool city so if you’re going there for a specific celebration, dress appropriately. Women can bring a nice shawl that will complement their formal dresses and to help them cover up when night time falls and the chilly winds start to blow. Guys should especially remember to bring jackets not only to bundle themselves up in but to lend to their dates for that extra romantic feel too.
Tagaytay is filled with lush vegetation and green shrubbery dotted with gardens and forests which make mosquito haven. Make sure to bring and apply insect repellant as mosquitoes thrive in damp places.
Unlike most hot and humid regions around the country, Tagaytay weather is relatively mild and cooler due it its high altitude. Keep these reminders on what to wear in Tagaytay in mind and be on your way to a prepared and enjoyable trip around the cool city.
