Christmas in Zamboanga City

"SINONG NAGSASABI NA MAGULO SA ZAMBOANGA CITY?" Well, the lights can tell you how safe you are when you are in the city. I am a proud ZamboangeƱo, I grew up there studied and had my first job way back year 2003.

Zamboanga City, is a city that can offer what other city can, and may give you more than what you want. City night life is just the same as Manila has, Restobars with live bands are everywhere. During daytime it's "business as usual", you can go to Barter Trade Center at Canelar,  visit some malls and drop by at the Pasalubong Center  near the Fort Pilar as well and refresh yourselves at the Paseo del mar during sun setting.

Every December, this building (City Hall) is transforming into an enchanted kingdom of lights, where colorful Christmas light decors are shining and sparkling attracting visitors to come closers and discover its beauty face to face. Promising its people the brighter city ahead.

Zamboanga City is a city for all, a simple place with natural richness that soon to show you more. 

I spent my Christmas in my home town 3 years ago, and my one week vacation is not enough to rediscover the beauty of Zamboanga City.

How to get there?
From Manila : there are three major domestic airline flights and it will only take for about 1 hr and 45mins going there.

There are also available inter island flights  (to and) from "Zamboanga City International Airport" to selected destinations in Mindanao, Visayas and Luzon (esp. Manila)

  1. Same with our City Hall in Davao, lights would envelop the building during Christmas time. Nakakatuwa nga kasi in ordinary days, di naman talaga namin pinapansin ang city hall unless may kelangan kami doon. But during Christmas season, na-aappreciate mo yung building.

    And ganda din pala ng Zamboanga. =)

    1. Ang daming magagandang lugar Diyan sa atin sa Mindanao, nakakalungkod lang sa media publicity.

  2. It's a very bright Christmas in Zamboanga. Would love to see Zamboanga.

  3. Ohhh I love the lights! I wish to go to Zamboanga and see the colorful vintas live. By the way, I read your comment on Suzette's blog. This link might help you if you wish to go to Eden Nature Park. http://pinaythrillseeker.blogspot.com/2011/02/things-to-do-in-davao-explore-eden.html ^_^
