Iloilo City
City of Love... Home of the sweetest Filipinos!... I can walk through its streets and wave my phone as no one would try to steal it... Talking with the Ilonggos is the sweetest thing. Most ilonggos are educated and rich! Now that it has an international airport, there's no stopping in growth and development!
The QUEEN CITY OF THE SOUTH, Premiere City of the Philippines and one of the most liveable and business friendly cities of the country today. Internationally known Cuisine, World Famous Landmarks and Festivals and now dubbed as city of firsts and pioneer city of the Philippines, this city will never run out of surprises. I Love ILOILO because I am an ILONGGO!
"City of Many Firsts".. "City of love".. The sweetest people on earth are the Ilonggos!

2Metro Cebu
I voted Cebu because it has a lot to offer, the most pickets crowd in the Philippines if you want to start any event or shows do it first in Cebu once mag " CLICK " it will be ok to the rest of the country. Cebu has a lot to offer international hotel brands are present in Cebu, big mall operators in Manila are also operating in Cebu by the coming years Cebu will be the Shopping Mecca is Southeast Asia the rivals of giant malls went underway. SRP will soon be the land mark address so to speak where the SM Seaside City is located the FLI projects are on going. Soon Cebu will have its BRT to ease traffic in the metropolis and to address the rapid developments. Cebu is blessed for having its rich culture, fun loving people, low crime rates etc. I happen to talk to a lot of people who visited for the very first time in Cebu all said they feel in love with Cebu City. It has a different Charisma, Cebus beauty radiates that they don't want to leave or keeping coming back. Last Sinulog "WoW" a lot of people enjoyed much in Cebu videos and picture would tell search nyo lang sa internet ito LIFEDANCE 2013, SINULOG Invasion and a lot more. Despite of its rapid development in real estates, businesses etc. Still Cebu has a problem that we all people living in Cebu could help the pollution and the street child but Cebu City would be a great city to live and to be proud of if we do our
Share to make our dreams possible. Pasensya na mo sa akong english and grammar ha I'm only a High School grad... Hehehe! Cheers!
Queen City of the South has progressive economy and rich in people, culture, traditions, foods and histories! Someday it will be like "Land of the Rising Sun! " because of its rapid growth of economy and good governance! A small paradise that Jesus has given to us!
No one can ever beat this city because of its rapid development. I THINK this is the best city in this country, instead of its progress, it is the no. 1 tourist destination of the Philippines

3Bacolod City
Bacolod is my humble home where you can find the Best Inasal in the World. The charming and sweet smiles of the people never fails to amaze any tourist and locals alike.

Bacolod City is a small city bustling with Bigtime Opportunities. The Economic Hub of Western Visayas, is home to the Country's Top Corporations. A mere provincial capital that can rival even it's Regional Capital in terms of Economic Growth.

Bacolod is a Cosmopolitan City and a Melting Pot of Cultures. Known to many as the Football Capital of the Philippines, Bacolod City boasts of Internationally Accredited Sporting Venues like the Pana-ad Football Stadium. Bacolod City hosted several International Friendlies already and is wowing crowd every time.

Voted as the #1 Best Place to Live in the Philippines by MoneySense Magazine, Bacolod City lives up to it's name as the Most Promising City of the Philippines. Even Tourism Advocate Carlos Celdran said that Bacolod City is the Philippines Best Kept Tourism Secret!

Bacolod City is Very Peaceful and Tourist Friendly one can even walk alone in the Street in the wee hours and will never worry about his safety.

Home to some of the country's best cuisines, Bacolod City is indeed a foodies haven. Ask the Top Chefs in Metro Manila and you'll be surprised that Bacolod Cuisine became their standards.

Bacolod is a humble and a simple city. But you can find LIFE's BEST SURPRISES HERE! Experience Bacolod Hospitality and you will never want to leave!

It's definitely MORE FUN IN BACOLOD CITY!
Bacolod City is a rising city in the Visayas. Other major cities in the Philippines boast of being in the Top 10 Next Wave Cities list. Bacolod is not on that list. Why? Because it is ALREADY one huge step above that status. Bacolod is ALREADY a Center of Excellence in IT-BPM, a testament to its strength as a voice and non-voice outsourcing hub in the country. Consequently, job opportunities abound. They're hiring by the thousands, and that's a fact.

There's no debate about it, Bacolod is the capital of pastries, desserts and everything sweet. Its food culture is also legendary. Piaya, napoleones, half-moon cakes, cheesecakes, tarts, Chicken Inasal, backribs. You don't go anywhere else to taste these.

Bacolod is home to the world-famous MassKara Festival. Attending MassKara is one of the "Things to do in October" in the world by National Geographic.

While other cities appear impressive because of their homegrown jeepney-building industries, Bacolod already builds its own world-class airconditioned WIFI buses. Many Filipinos don't know but Bacolod is home to the largest bus company in Southeast Asia.

In sports, Bacolod is synonymous to international football and boxing. We have hosted SEA Games events and Azkals matches. Our province have produced Olympic medallists, the Velasco brothers, in boxing.

We belong in a province with the most number of cities. Bacolod has lots of malls, but I don't want to even talk about it. I think that's not what makes cities unique. I am more inclined to boast about the grand ancestral houses in the haciendas of Negros Occidental owned by sugar barons. So many stories to tell.

Finally, Bacolod is home to a people with fine taste. Life in Bacolod is just top notch.
The City Of Smiles! The Cleanest and Greenest Highly-Urbanized City of the Philippines Hall of Famer! Most Business Friendly City of the Philippines! Football City!... Home of the MASSKARA FESTIVAL and SUGAR BOWL OF THE PHILIPPINES!

Those are just some of the awards and titles this city has received for its 73 years of existence as a chartered city.

A model in public governance, public-private partnership and a hotbed of organic agriculture, eco-tourism and environmental revolution

A city tested by hard times like disasters, economic crisis and insurgency, but never fails to show everyone that hope still shines and resiliency prevails

4Davao City
Davao has a low crime rate about less than 1%. Current revenue statistics show Davao City to be the fifth-richest city in the Philippines in terms of local income and IRA - the only city outside greater Manila in the top five. The city government also maintains a 24-hour emergency response system patterned after the 9-1-1 system used in the United States. A curfew on minors is also observed in the city. All business establishments, in particular bars and discos, are mandated by a city ordinance to refrain from selling alcoholic drinks beyond 2:00 am. Also, motorcycle drivers with no helmets and motorists with defective lights are not allowed to enter or drive in the city. Regular checkpoints in key parts of Davao City and at the city boundaries are conducted 24 hours to ensure the strict implementation of traffic rules.
The use of fireworks and other similar pyrotechnics, as well as smoking, is strictly prohibited in most of the city. Even outdoors, if you are under a roof of any kind, you are prohibited from smoking. Violators are made to pay hefty fines, perform community service, serve jail time, or a combination of the three. Littering is also prohibited.
Davao is not as developed as Cebu or Manila. It doesn't have as many tall buildings nor as grandiose highway systems. But what makes Davao the best city is its collection of world-class social services and its offering of modern cosmopolitan living to all. For one, Davao TAP water is considered only second best to Switzerland's. Its 911 rescue system, the 3rd of such in the world, is free. Its traffic signalization program uses the same technology as the one in Los Angeles. Its environment is well taken care of, and a number of garden and forest resorts are must-see tourist attractions. Its people are peace-loving people, raking for the city the lowest recorded crime rates in the country. Its people are also law-abiding, making the city smoke-free for 10 years. Its culture traces back to the original tribes of the land and continues to thrive in modern times as showcased in extravagant festivities as the Kadayawan. It's also a stone throw away to Samal's pristine white sand beaches affording an easy escape to a bustling city life. Its list of adrenaline-pumping adventures are also endless, topped only by trekking the peak of Mt. Apo, the highest mountain in the Philippines. There's more to Davao than buildings and highways, and that's what makes this city the best.
No doubt the best city in the philippines and still a young city with a lot of potential of becoming an economic power in the country. If not for mindanao issues this city should have been more progressive.

5Makati City
Makati is the heart of metro manila it can be the new york of the philippines because it acts like a cosmopolitian city of the philippines unlike bangkok, makati it self is clean. And the best part is it is VERY wild in the night, before you sleep in makati look out your window!

8Baguio City
Baguio City is a multicultural city because It has been a settlement for Americans, Japanese, Chinese and even the Natives of Cordillera. Baguio City is also a great city because it has the CRUISE-SHIP shaped MALL (SM Baguio), the Panagbenga (Flowerfestival; in which we make floats out of natural flowers), One of the Texas Instruments Factories, the Only Philippine Military Academy and We can also make our city look like New York because we have the ABANAO SQUARE, MALCOLM SQUARE, and very own Business street: Session Road.
Baguio is the center of everything... It is a bulk source of profit. Strong and competitive in terms of tourism, industrial exported products, beautiful views, hotels, and business cites. Rich in cultural activities, less case of accidents, people in Baguio City is hospitable, generous and kind. It was been a center of education. A center of mining industries, well known and socially involve in any issues.
A lot of improvement needed to be done though, If my city can be as strict as Davao City, as hospitable just like Iloilo City, As clean as Palawan City and as cold as Bukidnon then no wonder it will be number 1. I don't find it necessary to build tall buildings or have some structure built everywhere. Though my heart still belongs to Baguio City. I stayed in Makati City for 2 years and I loved it, Marikina City for almost a year and I feel safe. Go Baguio!

9General Santos City
I'm from Quezon City but I have been living and working here in GenSan for a decade now, my son was born here. It is a rapidly progressing city in terms of economic activities and booming population, people from all over the country are attracted by its unique combination of urban life amenities with a rural flavor, exotic multi-cultural mix, it's adventurous history as a settlement and the visionary legacy of its founder and namesake Gen. Santos as seen in its well-planned zones, wide avenues and broad boulevards is testament to its potential as the future gateway of the south as the Philippines southernmost tip city.
The Tuna Capital of the Phils, in Asia, and soon to be the Tuna Capital of the World.
General Santos is just a small city but with great talents. Gensan is very livable with great things to offer. It has wide roads and less traffic. Great resorts and hotels. Healthy cuisines and local delicacies are diverse! Plus, the cost of living here is very cheap! Truly magnificent!

Dubbed locally as the "City of Golden Friendship" (Dakbayan sa Bulawanong Panaghigala-ay in Cebuano, as the phrase appears on the city's seal) for the camaraderie and hospitality that are inherent and traditional traits of its people.
Cagayan de Oro is considered as a melting pot in Mindanao. A growing metropolis to be classified as a first-class city. Cagayan de Oro serves as the regional center being the most populous highly-urbanized city in Northern Mindanao (Region noted for its accessibility, business growth and tourism attractions.
Cagayan de Oro is the "Melting Pot of Mindanao" because of its accessibility, business growth, attractions and most of its entire warm and hospitable people. It is also a business hub of Northern Mindanao region, considered as one of the most progressive and competitive cities in the country.
It was recorded to have reached the annual income of 1.345 billion pesos as of the fiscal year 2006. The city's economy is largely based on industry, commerce, trade, services and tourism. These are the major financial sources of the city and it has been sufficient for the city's economic growth development.
This city is in boom, in bloom and in blossom... Why? Because it has progressed tremendously as manifested through the building of infrastructures such 3 flyovers, 3 SM Savemores, Laguindingan International Airport, construction of skyscrapers ( Limketkai Hotel, Avida Tower and Paseo del Rio Residences). Unfortunately, the city was under attacked by the recent horrible typhoon Sendong which caused the city to suffer a sudden economic lag. But, in just a matter of one month, the city was able to regain its economic stability.

11Metro Manila
Metro Manila is the total urban area that is composed of different cities and the surrounding urban fringe. The proper city Manila is only one of the big cities of this urban agglomeration. Metro Manila, or the 'National Capital Region' as they say in the Philippines.
Metro Manila is the business and cultural center of the Philippines and this is the face of our country as its capital, Manila develops- the whole country develops, too.

Known for its unique creole Spanish known as Chavacano and its Hispanic influence, leading the city be named as Asia's Latin City.

The city has its many firsts- the first Catholic diocese in Mindanao, and in the pre-WWII period the center of all Mindanao. The city will soon rise from being lagging behind the the cities in Mindanao towards being one of the most prosperous cities in Mindanao.

The Cabanatuan city is one of the fastest developing city in the Philippines, It has many branches of banks, Supermarket, Malls, Universities and school, infrastructure and etc. Take note that Cabanatuan is a small city but It can compete to other cities in region 3 or even outside of region 3, It can almost compete to Naga City. The people live here are so lucky because its one of the most happy, peace, alive and wealth city in the province of Nueva ecija or even though in the Philippines. All of the different businessman have been build their business here, were all satisfied, because they got what they want. It simply means that the city is really competitive, because its gives the very good services from banks, malls and supermarkets, universities and schools, hotels and restaurants and many others. I'm very proud to be Novo ecijano of Cabanatuan!
Largest city in Nueva Ecija, can almost compete to Naga City and Dagupan City. With two large malls in existence, an SM mall underway, numerous fast food chains, numerous bank branches and properly placed infrastructure - Cabanatuan deserves to be voted as a top livable city in our country
Cabanatuan City is already reached the qualification of a highly urbanized city (HUC). Seemingly, agriculture industry has a big contribution on this matter yet the city is evidently lack in tourist destination.

19Butuan City
The new investment haven in the Philippines. Located at the Northeastern part of Mindanao, Butuan has many qualities to boost of. It may not be the usual tourist destination, but it is rich with untapped resources. Butuan should be on the top of the mind of any investor owing to its vast track of land conducive to any investment. With the advent of public-private partnership, it is the first city of Japan that was visited first by acedemicians from Toyo University of Japan for P exploration. With the confidence put in by the Japanese investors, surely other investors from other countries would follow suit. Literally and figuratively, one can find a true gold in Butuan City.
Things are moving up in Butuan City. Highways leading to the City (East and West) are now 4 lanes, city roads are getting concreted, rehabilitated, and drainage systems are worked on. Being a pilot project of various Japan-funded Ps expect Butuan City to be among the premiere cities in the Philippines.
Robinson Place is building a mall now. SM just purchased a property for a mall too. Vista Land and Filinvest are building middle enclaves. There is an ongoing of a Golf / residential estates on the uptown part of the city. And recently Avida land of Ayala has expressed interest in the city.

Everybody is bullish about Butuan.

21Vigan City
It is a World Heritage Site in that it is one of the few Hispanic towns left in the Philippines, and is well known for its cobblestone streets, and a unique architecture that fuses Philippine and Oriental building designs and construction, with colonial European architecture.
It is one of the cleanest and greenest city in the Philippines and truly a child friendly city. No wonder this beautiful city is bowed by the tourists not only with its remarkable structures but also because of it's good people too.
Love the city, went to a private all boys high school back then on the late 50's. A US citizen come home (Sta. Catalina) every now & then & I am proud of the city as it progress. I applaud the city officials for keeping the city a nice place to live & visit.

I am from this place and definitely, one of the best cities out there. This city may not be as big as the others but we are rich in Cultural Heritage. We were even tagged as the Cebu Heritage Capital of Cebu South.
The place is as rich as their cultural heritage. Truly a nice place to live in.

93Tagum City
I'm from Davao.. Now living in Bacolod City... I have been to different cities in the Phils.. Like Cebu, Iloilo, Surigao, Gensan etc. But Tagum City is the best city for me.. Because it's clean (less or no plastic everywhere unlike Bacolod City).. Roads are well plan and the mayor put effort to beautify the city by having palm trees in the roads which is really nice to see in the daylight and during christmas season, it is full of Christmas lights... Tagum City is not that big like Cebu or Manila though.. But their city hall is nicer than the city halls I've seen personally :) juz saying. Bow.
Visit tagum city the durian capital in the philippines because we have the biggest durian festival in tagum every month of august to september. Visit also the biggest wooden rosary in the whole world located in the biggest christ the king cathedral in mindanao particular in tagum city. Visit also the world clas modern city hall of tagum.
It is the "City of Palm" with various festivals in a year. It is also called as Music Capital of the South because of the great support of the LGU in giving free programs in line to music resulting to have annual activity called "
Musikahan sa Tagum"
