    isa pa sa mga kina-inlaban ko sa zamboanga ay sobrang babait ng mga tao. extra effort sila sa pagtulong sa amin. kaya nung naglibot-libot na kami nawala na iyong takot namin sa lugar.

    Maganda nga sa Zamboanga, merong potential for tourism kung mas ioorganize or mas ipro-promote.

    Ang hindi ko lang gusto sa Zamboanga ay masyadong marami street children sa kalsada at medyo nakakairita na sinusundan sundan ka lagi at namamalimos. Problema rin ang transportation, 50 to 60 per trip ang bayad sa tricycle nila.

    Yun namang Sta. Cruz Island, maliit lang ang lugar at saka delikado sa hindi marunong lumangoy or bata kasi biglang lalim. Nung anduon kami, natapat pa na palayo sa Islang ang agos ng tubig. Delikado. Also, nagkalat ang putol putol na corals, I can imagine produkto ito ng dynamite fishing or something na pag abuso sa kalikasan.

    Ang hindi ko napuntahan ay mga falls. Been to Pasonanca Park too, as well as Yakan 'vilage' (souvenir shop). We stayed at Perlita Hotel on first night (terrible) then transferred to Lantaka Hotel (very nice).

    In general though, I like Zamboanga.

    Fort Pilar is an important part of the history of the city of Zamboanga.The Fort was built as a defense against the raiders sent by the Sultans of Mindanao and Jolo way back in 1635. The construction was supervised by Father Melchor de Vera, a Jesuit priest-engineer. It was was originally named "Real Fuerza de San Jose", then "Real Fuerza de Nuestra Señora del Pilar de Zaragoza" in 1719, and finally "Fort Pilar" after its capture by the American forces in November, 1899. Nowadays, the main attraction in this fort is the Shrine of the Nuestra Señora del Pilar de Zaragoza.

    will you be having an early morning flight???

    anyway here are my recommendations...

    have your breakfast at Busy Bee (along Gov. Camins St., near airport) try their Arroz Caldo and Fresh Lumpia, they also have an assortment of kakanin

    if adventurous enough you can drop by Pilar St., and have a taste of SATTI, a famous muslim breakfast staple

    go to Yakan Weaving Village buy some stuff and pass by La Vista del Mar Beach (magkatapat lang sila)

    visit Zambo Metropolitan Cathedral (downtown area) one of the biggest and most modern churches in the Philipplines, then have a stroll along the narrow streets of Zamboanga... btw, yung mga shopping center/bldgs ay magkakadikit lang, use comfortable pair of shoes or slippers

    12:00 noon
    have your lunch at Patio de Palmeras or Country Chicken... try to order their BILAO, good for 3-4 persons na yun

    go to Pasonanca Park and visit Paseo de Jardin or the famous postcard perfect Tree House and if you have a car, why not drop by Abong-Abong Park (around 1 kilometer away from Pasonanca)...

    shopping for barter goods at Canelar Barter Trade, try to haggle they'll definitely give you 10 to 20 pesos off from their asking price

    have your dose of sugar rush and coffee at Myrna's Bake House along Pilar St... their cakes and pastries are of greater quality and taste than most bakeshops that i have been to...

    go to fort Pilar and light some candles as well as pray for yourself and loved ones... then proceed to Paseo Del Mar, you can stroll inside and have some picture taking as well... daming pwedeng kainan sa loob including the famous Alavar Restaurant

    8pm, coffee at Lantaka Hotel

    10pm... visit Catribo Complex at Buenavista St to kill time and relax

    note i did not include visiting the Museum since it is closed on a Saturday...

    have a great stay in Zamboanga, sayang based na ako sa Davao, kundi ako na magpapasyal sa inyo sa mga nasabing lugar, gasolina lang sana magagastos niyo for my service, hehe
