24 Vigan City

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.

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.

One of the new 7wonder cities of the world

25 Taguig City


The Philippines Premier City 2020

A global city (also called world city or sometimes alpha city or world center) is a city generally considered to be an important node in the global economic system.

No wonder, in every country, there can only be one called GLOBAL CITY and that is in the City of Taguig.

Taguig City's programs have been a great assistance to many of the citizens. While the Local Government pushes to improve the physical features of the city, they have provided much programs to help the citizens. They have eliminated the gap that separates people from being aided in their aspirations. Educational, health, employment assistance have been given closely and fairly as a chance for all. Good governance is a great factor in a city's improvement.

Taguig owns the Fort Bonifacio,which Makati also claims.But we are sure that Taguig owns it...Taguig also have the potential to be the best city in Philippines

26 Pasig City

Pasig City is one of the most underrated and greenest cities in Metro Manila. It's a good place to live here although it has low lying areas. But the city government is doing flood control projects. It also has lower crime rates compared to other cities in Metro.

This city is similar to Makati, peaceful and beautiful. If I have a chance to pick where to live id still pick Pasig City.

Hey! Don't forgot Pasig, the third richest city in the Philippines..

27 San Jose de Buenavista

Capital of Antique province

28 Tagaytay City

Tagaytay is a very best place to live in due to it's geographical location. A cool and clean city with breathtaking scenery. A lot of Condominium is on the rise. Peace and order is good. There are lot of good and first class restaurant and hotel in the city. Going to Batangas, Laguna and Metro Manila is very easy due to it's road network and it's FREE because it's a freeway. ( No Paid Tollway )

Best climate and sceneries.
Not as congested as baguio plus near metro manila

Tagatay has a mild climate, good hospitals, and many good restaurants, hotels, and golf courses. It is only one hour away from an international airport and Manila. The roads and infrastructure in general are well maintained. You can be at large malls in Damarinas and St. Rosa within 30 minutes. The bad: Because it is a tourist destination traffic is bad on the weekends, but during the week it easy to get around. Housing and property are expensive, but less than 15-20 minutes away, lower on the hill, land and home prices are cheaper. It is great place to live.

Not much traffic during weekdays, good climate, ideal for retirees like myself

31 Butuan 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.

Butuan City is a complete mix of everything from exotic... To rustic to modern and euphoric. There is a surge of energy as it will embark on huge Private Public Partnership (P) developments aimed at attracting investments mainly from Japan.

Welcome to a city that has seen over 1,683 years of recorded history. It was the original site of the first Easter mass in Philippine soil. It was the site of the first formal hoisting of the Philippine flag in Mindanao. And it was the home of the “Balanghai” or Butuan Boats, the famous pre-historic native boats in Southeast Asia.

Butuan is situated in the northwestern part of the Caraga Region (Region 13). It is the seat of government of the region and serves as its trading center as well. The city’s strategic location makes it a natural gateway to the different prime destinations in the region.
