Muntinlupa

Muntinlupa

Muntinlupa is the southernmost city of Metro Manila. This southern area is known for its relaxed and laidback culture. The city gets local and foreign visitors for its good food tripping spots and 5-star hotels.

You’ll need more than one short day in the Emerald City of the Philippines. Muntinlupa got this nickname because of the grassy fields that grew in abundance before the city developed into what it is today.

In the early 1900’s, Muntinlupa went through an identity crisis. This city was originally a district of Morong, Rizal. After two years, it decreed a municipality in the city of Biñan, Laguna. Muntinlupa then transferred to within Taguig City’s boundaries. In 1917, Muntinlupa City gained its independent status and is now one of the 16 cities of Metro Manila.

Muntinlupa City is the home of high society subdivisions like the Ayala Alabang Village and of shopping centers like the mega-sized Festival Mall and the homey Alabang Town Center. Hotels in the area include the Bellevue Hotel and its little sister, B hotel, as well as Vivere and Crimson Hotel.

In 2010, Muntinlupa became the first city in the Philippines to ban plastic bags and styrofoam packaging in shops, groceries, and restaurants.

The city was infamous for being the home of the New Bilibid Prison, the country’s insular penitentiary. Aside from housing criminals with maximum security, the New Bilibid Prison compound is where you’ll find Itaas Public Elementary School, housing projects, a Recreation Camp, and the smallest natural lake in the country: the Jamboree Lake.

Get your game on in the Muntinlupa Sports Complex, located along Tunasan Baywalk. The complex is the venue for different kinds of sports competitions, like local volleyball and basketball tournaments, and arnis (Filipino martial art using stick weapons) exhibitions.
