I am from Zamboanga City also known as Asia’s Latin City. You can expect to be received with open arms and hospitable people. Our language is Chavacano and it is a Spanish creole. Our city is a melting pot of Christian and Muslim cultures which creates beautiful and colorful blend of different foods, architecture and traditional clothing unique to our city.

Zamboanga City is in the Mindanao part of the beautiful country, Philippines. It is a home of many cultures like Visayan, Chavacano, Muslim, Subanen, and more. It is where diverse indigenous people live together peacefully. I love interacting with the different cultures.

Zamboanga City is a very diverse city. Everyone respects every religion, race and gender. My city is “Asia’s Latin City” because of the unique culture influenced by Spanish during their colonization period. It is evident on the city’s local dialect called “Chavacano. The food and the way of living was also changed.

It is not a simple city but a unique city. We have a dialect which is the “Chavacano” (a Spanish Creole Multilingual Language) and zamboanga is not a Muslim city, but still it has a lot of Muslim but they are very friendly.

For someone moving here, know my city have witnessed more than half of my country’s history. throughout the years, the people did a good job in preserving the historical culture. It is said to be Asia’s Latin City, and I couldn’t agree more. When you get the chance to visit here, you will absolutely witness the traditions and culture imparted to us by the Spaniards during the Spanish colonization through the built of building and houses, the form of transportation, the different museums and most importantly the different churches built all over the city.
