Tagaytay sits atop a ridge that runs along the north side of beautiful Taal Lake and the Taal Volcano. Although it is only about an hour’s drive from the sprawling metropolis of Manila, there is nothing urban about Tagaytay. It’s a small mountain resort town surrounded by breath-taking scenery.

The standard of living is higher in Tagaytay than in most Philippine towns and cities. Many wealthy Manila businessmen and politicians maintain holiday villas here.

But it’s not only the low cost of living that attracts so many expats to the Philippines: the country has one of the best retirement programs for foreigners in the world.
