Welcome to Beautiful Zamboanga City

Bienvenidos Zamboanga.
This year i finally made it back again to Zamboanga City ,the place I used to live for almost 2 years.
I observe no matter when you visit Zamboanga ,it still remains unmatched to all the other city`s in the Philippines in beauty,it is still the most beautiful city in the Philippines.
I have been to Davao,Cebu, Manila.Cagayan de oro and other city´s ,sorry to say but in terms of natural beauty,senery,divers people,seafood,fruits the other places can not match.
And guess what Zamboanga City has a new attraction,Paseo del mar a beachfront boulevard similar to the Manila bay,where you can eat and dine right next to the beach.
And unlike the press reports as a Foreigner I never had any problems and I always feel safe in Zamboanga for 18 years now .
Check out for yourself.

The whole City is surrounded by water.
Go to the beach at Ebenezer Bible College,it a very serene place.
Zamboanga has lots of Beaches rocky and sandy , and the best and cheapest seafood in the Philippines.
It is a City like only few in the world ,it has its own Islands with pink and white sand agross the City and Mountains like Lunzuran and Mt Colambato with the cross on top within in the City Proper from where you can have an fantastic Oceanview.

Inspite of the bad press reports it is peaceful its People are great ,there are many Beautiful Beaches with in the City prober and Beautiful Mountains too ,all with in easy reach.
Try Acapulco Beach resort or La Vista .

When you are in Zamboanga don 't miss to go to the famous pink and white sand Islands of Sta Cruz.

A good place to stay while in Zamboanga City is Sam's Guesthouse it is affortable and close to the Bus terminal and Guiwan Market

Or travel to BOlong beach and the stunning 11 islands of the coast of bolong approx.35 Km drive along the ocean from Sam`s Guesthouse.
There are farms with Horseback riding.

The people are very friendly and helpful.
The fruits and seafood are very good and among the cheapest in the Country

Zamboanga City Boulevard

Abong Abong Zamboanga City

    Haven't been to any pink sand beach. Is it lovely to look at? even better than white sand?
