After many years, I finally made it to down to ZAMBOANGA, a lovely town in the very South Western corner of the Philippines!
Believe it or not, they speak SPANISH here! Well, it’s not 100% Spanish, it’s called Chabacano which is more of a creole (mixed) dialect that developed when the Spaniards settled here almost 500 years ago.
Not surprisingly, Zamboanga is dubbed as “Asia’s Latin Town” for its strong roots to Spanish culture that can be seen not only in the language, but also in the cuisine and lifestyle.
I’ve had a GREAT time here so far and I hope this video opens your eyes to a lesser-known part of the Philippines — my favorite country in the world.
