When looking for a quick get-away for the weekend, one place that usually comes to mind is Tagaytay. It’s got everything you want – lots of food choices, fun and adventure for the old and young, nature (hello Taal!) and most of all, cool weather – a welcome break from the exhausting heat of Manila. Well aside from the food and adventure, one thing I look forward to during any trips is the hotel. I’m an OC when it comes to where we’ll be spending our stay – if the hotel has nice and comfortable beds, clean comfort rooms, working water heater and other hotel facilities to make our stay more enjoyable. Aside from being family-friendly, the hotel must be budget-friendly too. That’s why when booking for our accommodations, I make sure that the place is well reviewed by other people who’ve been there – and thank goodness, there’s Traveloka App for that.
Traveloka App is the one-stop travel booking app for cheap hotel needs. And to make everything easier for moms like us, we can use the Traveloka App to book our preferred hotel directly.
