Taguig

Everyone in Metro Manila knows that Taguig City is one of the hottest places to shop, dine, and party. The city, originally named after the first 800 taga-giik, or farmer-fishermen, to settle on its humble land, has now evolved into a highly urbanized destination synonymous with the glamorous metropolitan lifestyle.

While most people know Taguig as a vibrant space of towering skyscrapers and high-class living, it is also home to many important historical landmarks that pay homage to heroes of past Philippine wars. If you find yourself in Taguig City, it’s best to explore this city’s unique blend of history and contemporary culture.

A good starting point in your journey is the highly accessible Bonifacio Global City, the heart of Taguig’s modern side. You’ll come across a wide variety of upscale shopping malls, artistic urban parks, and high-end nightclubs in this thriving central business district.

Make sure to pass by Bonifacio Global City’s foodie hotspots like Bonifacio High Street, The Fort Strip, and Burgos Circle to sample the creations of various well-known chefs and fine dining restaurants. Aside from Bonifacio Global City, places like McKinley Hill also offer plenty of shopping and dining options.

After touring the city’s shopping and business districts, one can explore the rich historical landmarks scattered all around Taguig. Take a visit to the Philippine Army Museum and Library in Fort Bonifacio, the national headquarters of the Philippine Army. In this museum you’ll find antique tanks, ammunition, guns, cannons, and other Philippine relics from World War II.

History buffs will also enjoy touring the Veterans Museum, which tells stories of World War II using life-size montages and various other art forms combined with modern technology. Another interesting stop is the Libingan ng mga Bayani, the final resting place of over 33,000 Filipinos who fought during World War II.

If you’re a fan of old churches, the Archdiocesan Shrine of St. Anne, otherwise known as the Santa Ana Church, is a must-see. Built in 1587, the church is considered to be one of the oldest in the Philippines. Inside the church is the Museo De Sta. Ana, which houses religious relics detailing the history of Taguig’s religious culture.

Don’t forget to drop by the Parola during your visit as well. This 17th century lighthouse near the mouth of the Pasig River played a crucial role in the fight for Philippine independence. KKK’s revolutionary leader, Andres Bonifacio, chose the Parola as the secret meeting place for the Katipunan forces as they planned their historical uprising.
