People are very hospitable, friendly and outgoing. You should also try our very own exotic food which is the “Ginataang Salagubang”. Aside from that dish, you can also try adobo, and the famous “Day-old” street food. Go to church, malls, or try some recreational activities with some Cabanatuaños.

Know our city (Cabanatuan) is very well known as the tricycle capital of the Philippines. It is called “tricycle capital of the Philippines” because in this whole country, we have the largest population of this transportation vehicle. Those who can’t afford to buy their own car are the ones who ride in this vehicle. In Manila there are taxis but in Cabanatuan we have tricycle.

Province of Nueva Ecija where Cabanatuan City is located, was known as the, “Rice Granary of the Philippines.” So then, people who wanted to move to our city may consider living behind rice fields or living with a farmland where they can breathe fresh air, plant fruits and vegetables in their backyards and most especially taste the well-known ‘longganisa’ of our province.

Cabanatuan City is a place where you can find food stall everywhere. There are different food stalls where you can choose what you want to eat. From exotic foods like balut up to the specialized rice cakes like Biko and palitaw. Foreigners often visit us for them to taste our native delicacies.

Located in the heart of the rice granary of the Philippines, Cabanatuan City is a home to various delicacies. Longganisa, which is ground meat with garlic and spices wrapped in a special coating, is one of the most famous unique Cabanatueño delicacy. Cabanatuan is also widely known for having three-wheeled vehicles as its unique form of transportation. These vehicles are commonly called tricycles.

Our city is the most urbanized city in the province of Nueva Ecija. It has multiple malls, supermarkets, restaurants, resorts, training grounds, and training centers. The most known training ground is the Lakewood golf and country club. The second one is the Kalikid Shooting Range.

He should know where are the flood prone areas in our city since during rainy season the flood rises up to five feet due to improper drainage system. I suggest to reside in subdivisions that are well-elevated. Also, he should know how far is the subdivision in his workplace to estimate his travel time.

Once you move to Cabanatuan City, you should know the norms; there are a lot of tricycles as a mode of public transportation, most people prefer riding to walking; longganisa and adobo are some of the famous foods we have because of the incredible taste. We live simply but we are indeed happy.

When moving to Cabanatuan, one should have enough patience to long traffic jams. This is because Cabanatuan City is the tricycle capital of the Philippines. However, the city is also known for its warm people and fine delicacies. The City is also known for its famous longganisa, a type of sausage made of pork and lots of garlic.

For someone considering in moving here, he or she must first know the background about the city. The place is very important. This is because the house must be in place where it will be convenient to the person, for example, is it near the market? work? etc.

If you’re looking for a place to have a nice summer, this isn’t it. We only have two seasons here: hot and hotter. Summer will melt you. If you’re planning to take nice pictures with beautiful scenery, this is not the place either. Cabanatuan is a city in Central Luzon, so we don’t have the ocean here, no mountains, just one river. But if you are searching for great places to eat, you’re making a great choice coming here.

Moving to our city is like moving to a food park. We got our all time favorite food longanisa or in English a smoke sausage. We have also the best hotel to stay for the nights five star hotel with a pool. We have also the best policy for riding motorcycles.

If someone is considering moving to my city, know how to manage his or her time wisely. My city is a busy one. One should be ready to travel as early as five o’clock in the morning to avoid the heavy traffic.

The city is accessible to basic needs such as market, public transportation, utilities such as power, water and good internet coverage. Considered as a city, but far from the usual chaos of a usual rural living. Not much pollution and the citizens are far more disciplined.

He must get himself used to costly transportation fees. Our City has always been known as one of the hottest towns in the Philippines. It is a city that offers both the convenience of urban and rural living. The people are kind. It is developing to a high urbanization stage where investing businesses is ideal.
