SM City Tuguegarao

ImageSomeday, in the future, there will be an SM City Tuguegarao. I understand that plans are in the works, as we speak. The picture above shows an artists impression how SM City Tuguegarao will look when it is completed.   I have visited many SM City malls in Metro Manila area and they are always fun to shop at……..but this will be my first opportunity to visit a new SM City Mall in the Cagayan Valley!  Looking forward to shopping there when it is completed.

eating Guava in the Philippines (known as bayabas)

ImageLocally grown bayabas trees in the Philippines (we know them as Guava) are green on the outside and a reddish color on the inside. I was not use to eating Guava that is green on the outside thinking that they are not ripe. In fact, by cutting one in half, they are a watermellon red color on the inside and sweet! They are grown all over the Cagayan Valley and can be harvested all year!

The Tuguegarao City Hall

Image

Undoubtedly one of the most BEAUTIFUL buildings in Tuguegarao.  It is very IMPRESSIVE to see from the road as it sits on a hill overlooking the city!

I want to take more photos of it, from ALL ANGLES, the next time that I am in Tuguegarao…….hopefully next year!  🙂

taking a tricycle in Tuguegarao

ImageWhat to pay for a tricycle in Tuguegarao, Cagayan?

Image

I believe that the minimum fare is 10 pesos per person. It  all depends how far around town that you need to go!  If you are  going  to be around the downtown section of Tuguegarao, then, I believe,  10p – 20p is a fair price.  I lived for a while in Carig Sur, which is about 3km from downtown Tuguegarao. The tricycle price for 2 people was always about 50p (25p per person). When in doubt about the fare as the tricycle driver beforehand!

My impressions of Tugeuegarao, Cagayan. 

Image

Cagayan is a province located in the far northern part of the Philippines. Tuguegarao is the Capital city. I loved Tuguegarao because so many things to do there. It is not as big as Manila but still maintains the atmosphere of a larger city. I lived there for over a month and would gladly do it again!  The first impression of downtown Tuguegarao is that there are many, many Tricycles…but many things do do, and many places to eat!

I will tell more about my experiences of Tuguegarao in my future blogs!
