NEXT to Rizal and Bulacan provinces in proximity to Manila is Cavite province. The Rizal-Cavite boundary is 14.94 kilometers from Manila and the provincial capital at Cavite 35 kilometers, and the Tagaytay Ridge is 78.2 kilometers on the Manila-Naic-Mendez road. When viewed from the air, the province looks like an opened fan. Fronting on ManilaBay, the coastal plain is the edge of the fan. The ribs are the several rivers radiating from the crest of Tagaytay Ridge.
