45 Lipa City

There are many jobs for the people, has medical facilities, malls for entertainment, has a booming economy.

Dubbed as the "little Rome" of the Philippines.

Lipa City is CALABARZON's 5th richest city with an income of over P850M. While the city experiences dramatic economic development, it still retains its agricultural heritage.

The city also serves as the religious center of the country as numerous churches, monasteries, convents and seminaries are located within the city.

The city also boasts modern educational and medical facilities accommodating not only the Lipeños but also the whole Southern Tagalog region.

The city was also recognized as an ICT hub twice.

Lipa City is situated 1,025 ft above sea level between Mountains which make its temperature cooler than average Philippine temperature. Lipa is known to have religious and family oriented people.

Lipa is now known to be the "city for all seasons". Actually, upon my observation, Lipa City is now colder than Tagaytay city, even if Tagaytay is higher than Lipa.

Caloocan City is one of the oldest cities in Metro Manila but the city governance is sickening. It seems hopeless, kahit sinong maupo walang pagbabago. Hard core corruption, and the city it continuously rotting from inside.

58 Dagupan City

Most proactive and humblest people in Northern Luzon. Proactive people is taking responsibility. They never blame the government, because they are response-able of their life. They use excellent language to communicate with each other to serve either the locals or tne needs of the tourist's as an indicator of how they see and respect themselves. Small but Excellent City to be proud of.

The Independent component city small but excellent improvements. One of the 12 metro of the Philippines. It is the Bangus Capital of the world should I say. A central of Commercial, Financial, Education, Medical, and more in north manila. It is the meeting place for everyone because a lots of things to do. Center of Fun, Enjoyments, and Momentum. For me this is the place of energetic people. Inspired city.

The first City in the province of Pangasinan. It is called the BANGUS capitAL of the Philippines. Center of Education and Medical Center north of Manila. It is one of the most progressive city of the province.

You can still see in the city the remnants of the HIstory.

Financial capital of the north
