Valencia City is among the most heavily populated cities in the province of Bukidnon. Located in the heart of the province, it is also literally the center of trade and commerce.
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.
Misamis Oriental is rich in natural resources – both underwater and on land. It’s also the most convenient starting point when planning a trip to Northern Mindanao, because the provincial capital of Cagayan de Oro City has daily Manila flights.
The province of Misamis Occidental has the Mindanao Sea to the northeast, Iligan Bay to the east, and Panguil Bay to the southeast. Its coast nonwithstanding, Misamis Occidental’s terrain is mostly hilly.
Malaybalay City is the landlocked capital of Bukidnon. Its climate is cool and pleasant, and you won’t have to worry about typhoons around here.
Like most provinces in the region, Lanao del Norte has both land and water on its sides. Its terrain is a combination of coastline, plateaus, and mountains.
Iligan City is part of the province of Lanao del Norte. It’s mostly bordered by land, except for its west where Iligan Bay lies. The city is made up of flat cultivated coastal land, volcanic hills, and mountains with waterfalls and cold springs.
Bukidnon comprises more than half of Northern Mindanao, and is the fourth largest province in the Philippines. It’s also Mindanao’s major producer of rice and corn, and has vast pineapple, banana and sugarcane plantations.
Barely 240 square kilometers in land area, Camiguin is the second smallest island of the Philippines in both area and population. It is just 23 kilometers at its longest and just a bit more than 14 kilometers at its widest. Within this small area lie seven volcanoes. Lovely little Camiguin is the island “born of fire.”
Cagayan de Oro may very well be the happiest place in the country. The “City of Golden Friendship,” as it is sometimes called, is home to especially friendly and warm Filipinos. Their ready smiles are a fitting welcome, with Cagayan de Oro’s accessible location also making it the “Gateway to Northern Mindanao.”
