I spent 9 days in Zamboanga City. I visited my girlfriend’s hometown and also toured the area in the process. I was a little worried in the beginning because I left on the day that Typhoon Pablo entered the Philippines. However, Zamboanga was one of the few destinations where scheduled flights still pushed through.
For the sake of having a new blog post, here are a few highlights about this trip. I’ll be writing more detailed accounts about these places soon.
Zamboanga City Highlights: Things to Do, Places to Visit
December 2-10, 2012
Zamboanga International Airport
Sta. Cruz Pink Island
I read about the Sta. Cruz Island (also known as Pink Island of Zamboanga) through Chyng’s blog post. The island is called such because of the crushed red corals that have sort of “mixed” with the white sand. We were also escorted by an armed soldier for security purposes.
