Pampanga, Philippines

June 30, 2011

Our provinces continuous efforts to improve their respective regions are unmistakably living up to the tag that the Philipines is one Asian country worth visiting due to its countless and varied tourist destinations. 

Pampanga is one province in central Luzon which lives up to its name: a river bank. Generally the body of land at the side of a river, wherein it reflects the status of the water- may it be a radiant green carpet of grass means reflecting healthy river or the exact opposite. 

The province lies on the northern shore of Manila Bay; bordered by Bataan and Zambales at its west, Tarlac and Nueva Ecija at the north, and Bulacan in the northeast. With farming and fishing as the main industry of Pampanga its products revolve around rice, corn, sugar cane, and tilapia. 

And may I say that because of its native’s drive to turn it into a metropolitan-like region: from transportation and tourism, water and power, telecommunication, to education systems; they have prospered evidently and now has a wide variety of goods, facilities, and tourist spots. 

Pampanga is considered the culinary capital of the Philippines, with well known dishes such as kare-kare (stewed beef and ox tail in peanut sauce usually dipped in shrimp paste), sisig (pork marinated in a sour liquid such vinegar, then seasoned with salt, pepper and other spices), and kinilaw (meat or fish, fruits and vegetables sourly cooked with vinegar or other souring agents flavored with combinations of condiments). 

Festivals are held throughout the year, as towns and cities celebrate in honor of their patron saints. Not to mention the prominent events during February and December: Hot Air balloon festival and Giant Lantern Festival respectively. 

The city of San Fernando, Pampanga’s capital is the place to be when visiting tourist spots such as the Metropolitan Cathedral, Paskuhan Village, and Benigno Aquino Hall to name a few. Additionally there are several Historical landmarks, museums and monuments, as well as parks to be visited for a truly memorable vacation. 

With this we can affirm that the river bank occupied by a rich, diverse flora and fauna reflects how it is presently doing; supporting the ever flowing waters which cater to the needs of its dependants. As well as passively making a name for itself: with its distinctiveness and coping capability.
