Zamboanga City

Zamboanga City is called “Asia’s Latin City” because of its Spanish-tinged Chabacano dialect – dating back to the earliest foreign occupation of the Philippines in the 1600’s. This musical language is a huge part of Zamboangeño culture. You’ll find a lot of its influence in local song and dance.


San Jose, Tarlac is one of the 17 municipalities in the province. It’s tiny, with a population of approximately 32,000 people. But the town has a Monastery that holds one of the most sacred relics in the Christian world—a piece of Jesus Christ cross. Pilgrims from all over visit and pray to this relic, the only one in the entire Asia!


The City of Tangub became the 50th city of the Philippines in 1967. It’s been a model citizen of a city since, with its cleanliness, beautiful environment, and high level of peace and order.
