Top 10 Best Philippine Provinces


The Top Ten

1 Capiz

For me the no. 1 best philippine province is either PALAWAN and CEBU... Capiz? I think its not belong to top 2 to 5...

Number 1 PALAWAN! Go go palawan number 1...

I think capiz is not the best provinces in the Philippines it should be palawan or bohol

2 Cebu

Wow how come Cebu is in this rank it should be the FIRST because Cebu is a lively province with the sweetest people, when you visit this province you will only see the sweetest smiles of the Cebuanos. Cebu also has the most beautiful places and the most beautiful historic places that are still visited by tourists from the whole Philippines and the whole world. Cebu also holds some of the actors and actresses that are now progressive and they show the whole world including the Philippines that Cebu can be good in acting. Cebu also holds the commercial buildings, like Sm Seaside City and it will be the next biggest mall of the Philippines and 4th in the whole world, like also the Mactan International Airport which serves as the gateway to Cebu and many more others. Cebu also holds the beautiful cities like...
Bogo City
Carcar City
Danao City
Naga City
Talisay City
Toledo City
Cebu City
Lapu-lapu City
Mandaue City
And many others.
Lastly, I voted this ...more

It's the richest province, economically, culture-wise and everything it's the center of roman catholicism in the Philippines! CEBU is the best province even ranked to be the 8th design capital in the world! - rampelstiltskintribalkingston

In everything, Cebu is the first from Christianity to recent time. From history and culture, foods and infrastructure. And the richest province in the whole Philippines. Viva Cebu..Viva Sto. Nino. Go Ceboom. Most populated province and most tourist arrivals next to Metro Manila. Cebu should be no. 1.

Cebu has everything from Mountains to beaches, from black sand to white sand, from beatiful landscape to nice sunset... basically everything

3 Palawan

The Philippines last frontier, that's palawan... Number 1 PALAWAN...

Palawan should be the no. 1. The paradise in the modern world,

A well run province and safe

The beach and solemnity and peace of the islands in Palawan are marvelous. Should be on the top list together with cebu, batanes and baguio. - userkosatoptens

4 Bohol

"Bohol is known as "God's Little Paradise","Heart of the PHILIPPINE ISLANDS", and" Jewel of the Philippines"... We can't deny the fact that this island province is rich in natural resources, culture and tradition, and floras&faunas, that made it like a combination of tree provinces;Aklan for white beaches, Cebu for rich History, and Palawan for it's unspoiled paradise.. Bohol has it all! It's more fun in BOHOL & It's the Better in BOHOL!

Bohol deserves to be called the "Best Province in the Philippines" or even to be "in the world" more than the 2 provinces listed above. Peaceful, Natural, and truly a Paradise as it is called to be the "God's Little Paradise" and also "Jewel of the Philippines". Also the "Heart of the Philippine Islands". Bohol has it all and It's more fun in BOHOL.

Bohol is undeniably a paradise. It's the most beautiful province that is yet knowing. Bohol has everything you wish to see in a tour. The natural wonders, the colourful floras and faunas, the fine white-sand beaches, the historical sites and most of all the overwhelming people. All of what other provinces offers is also found here in Bohol. Just see it for yourself. so come and visit Bohol and I'm sure that you'll get amazed in it's breath-taking features. The only island-province that's complete package for everyone. The Best Province EVER among the rest.

Born here, but I moved away.

I wish I could be in Panglao or the calm waters of Anda.
Island City Mall and the amount of friendly people here.
I miss Bohol.

5 Aklan

Aklan is the only province in the Phil. that has 2 International Airports. Th province haS 6 Jetty Ports and the road networks are wide..

If you want world class beach island, white beaches, diving sites, world class ati-atihan festival, wild river adventure, green scenery, mountains, forests, mangrove forests, caves, waterfalls, cold springs, original pina fiber clothes, seafoods, hospitable and fun-loving people and many many more... Visit beautiful province of AKLAN... The "Philippines oldest province"-1213 A.D. and 1956...

GO Aklan! Aklan is really a gorgeous Province and their beautiful traditions and culture. Even, the White sand of Boracay. I choose Aklan!

Aklan is not only Boracay; Aklan is more and still yet to be known for. Now Aklan has the Pawa Windmills atop the high peaks of the northern part and oversees Boracay island. It also has dozens upon dozens of waterfalls in the highlands of Madalag and Libacao. Cold springs sprawl in Nabas and a length of a white sand shoreline stretches from the far most north of the province to Tangalan, somewhere in the middle. Walk a good distance within the serene thick Mangrove forest on bamboo and wooden foot bridge toward the end that will captivate your heart with the bliss of breeze and the peaceful sound of the sea. Not to worry, you will never feel too far from urbanity in Kalibo if you miss what a typical city offers with its two drive-thru chains (Jolibee and McDonald's), a number of 24/7 convenient stores (7-eleven) and other local classy restaurants for cuisines. Truly, Aklan has more places that are worthy to be stopped over for a little.

8 Batangas

Batangas could be the highest income generating province in the Philippines. It's got the 2 gas refineries, Shell and Chevron, plus dozens of petrochemical plants. This is very evident on the number of banks in this region and the very high cost of living.

Batangas' roads and highways are way ahead of its neighboring provinces. Batangas to Manila is just a little over one hour drive. This is very attractive to investors, agriculture, and other business segments.

According to data from studies, Batangas is included within the Philippines' Top 10 Richest Provinces list, and most of the people who live in the province has a high income. And, according to statisticians, if Batangas keeps its pace, it could easily outrun Cavite, Davao, and even Cebu as one of the best provinces to live in.

Beautiful batangas, discipline people and responsible,

Batangas which you can see the talent and skills you've been looking for

14 Negros Province

I voted Negros Province because it is a province where people come and love to live. Though, away from Metro Manila, its glory captures the hearts of the people to stay. It is a peaceful and sweet productive place. It is the province in the country with the highest number of towns converted into cities because of productivity. You will enjoy to live in these provinces where smiling (Bacolod City) and humble (Dumaguete City) people live.

Negros is an island not a province, negros occidental and negros oriental are separate provinces... This is "best philippine provinces" not best philippine island...

The Negros Island Region is the perfect destination for travelers who likes to witness the beauty of our nature.

The province of sweet and charming people.

15 Mindoro Province

Here in Oriental Mindoro, whenever you go outside everyone is very kind. Here the crime rate is very very very very (i'm serious very) low. There is many places to go and in the Philippines I think this is the most peaceful place.

Occidental mindoro has this countryside feel to it... It's a breathe of fresh air when you arrive on its northern part of Abra de Ilog.. Its amazing you have mountainous areas at your left and the ocean on your right when driving from a car... The scene is breath taking and the food... Savory... Love it.. =)

Mindoro is an island... Occidental mindoro and oriental mindoro are separate provinces...

You are right. I live here for almost 30 years and this province is very peaceful. Hoping someday I will retire in this island.

MARINDUQUE is the very center of the Philippines and the heart of the Philippine archipelago. It was marked by Americans as the LUZON DATUM of 1911 being the center and mother of all majons.
