Make your way to Zamboanga City and experience the warm welcome and extraordinary charm of Asia’s Latin City! Viva Zamboanga!
Situated at the southernmost tip of Zamboanga Peninsula, overlooking the island province of Basilan, the city serves as the economic and cultural hub of the region. It is a melting pot of diverse cultures and multi-ethnic societies, a fusion of complex components that make the city delicately yet beautifully unique.
An armed conflict of 2013 tarnished the city but like a phoenix rising from its own ashes, Zamboanga is back on its feet, ready to wow everyone with its classic and natural beauty.

Cruz Islands and dive on its rich underwater world; visit the city’s attractions such as Fort Pilar, Zamboanga City Hall, Rizal Park, Petit Barracks, Pasonanca Park, Camps Susana, and Plaza Pershing among others; learn to speak Chavacano; see the different species of orchids; hike the Lanzuran Mountains; ride the colorful vintas in Paeo del Mar; go shopping in the barter markets; and explore more of the city’s offering.
