Bulacan

The birthplace of Philippine democracy, Bulacan is a history buff’s dream. The province was one of the first places in the country to revolt against the Spanish colonizers. It’s also the hometown of many of the Philippines’ national heroes, like Gregorio del Pilar and Trinidad Tecson.

A must-see in Bulacan is the old Barasoain Church in the capital city of Malolos. Built in 1859 by Augustinian missionaries, the church was the center of three major events in Philippine history: The meeting of the first Philippine Congress, the drafting of the Malolos Constitution, and the declaration of the Philippine Republic. It’s for these reasons why Barasoain is known as the “Cradle of Democracy in the East.”

The Biak-na-Bato National Park in San Miguel is another important historical destination. This area saw the signing of a truce between the Spanish governor-general and Emilio Aguinaldo, the first president of the country, marking the end of the Philippine Revolution.

The town of Bustos should be on your itinerary as well. Aside from the bahay-na-bato (stone houses that were built during the time of the Spanish colonization), Bustos is also known for its sweets like barquillos (rolled-up wafers) and lengua de gato (milk cookies).

Even though Bulacan is miles away from the beach, the province has plenty of water parks where visitors can cool off. There’s Malamig Park Resort in Bustos, which has an octopus slide or Jed’s Island Resort in Calumpit, which has over 10 swimming pools. There’s also Pacific Waves Resort in San Jose del Monte and Cool Waves Ranch & Waterpark Resort in Barangay San Nicolas.

Bulacan is famous for its crispy pata, a deep fried pig’s knuckle served with soy sauce and vinegar. Try out JL’s Crispy Pata in Norzagaray for some artery-clogging goodness.

If you’re looking to end your Bulacan trip with a bang, you can buy fireworks here and it’s all legal. The Philippines is a fireworks-loving country and Bulacan is the top maker of them in the nation.
