Caloocan

In the northern part of Metro Manila lies Caloocan City. It’s the second largest city in the Metro, just after Quezon City, in terms of land area and is the third largest in terms of population.

The city is known for its brushes with history, being a central battleground for the Philippine Revolution of 1896. The city was also the combat zone for two battles in the Philippine-American War.

On the intersection of EDSA and Rizal Avenue lies the city’s most famous landmark, the Andres Bonifacio Monument. The monument was made by national artist Guillermo Tolentino and marks the first encounter of the revolutionary group Katipunan, under the leadership of Bonifacio, against their Spanish enemies.

It’s fairly easy to get around in Caloocan City, as jeepneys and tricycles can take you anywhere you need to go. It’s cheap too, with rides starting at ₱7 (US$0.45).

Caloocan City may not have a lot to offer, but it certainly has a lot of heart. It’s a proud city with a proud history, one that you should be eager to visit.
