Rizal region is in the Luzon region of the Philippines. It is a province located to the east of the Manila capital region with boundaries of the westernmost towns and cities of Cainta and Taytay blurring into the city of Pasig in the capital region. While becoming increasingly urbanized since the past few decades, it holds some rich secrets in both cultures and sights that are untouched by heavy and popular tourism yet are beauties of their own to be enjoyed.

Due to its proximity from Manila, Rizal is becoming an increasingly good residential option for city-bound professionals and students who opt to stay at close proximity to the center of action (Manila) yet far enough to allow occasional peace and quiet (which is becoming increasingly hard to get nowadays).



Other destinations

  • Angono
  • Talim Island: on the country's largest island in a body of freshwater (Laguna de Bay), climb Mt. Tagapo where you can get a full 360 degrees view of the lake, the bustling metropolis of Metro Manila to the northwest, the Sierra Madre Mountains to the east and the surrounding countryside of laketowns.



Rizal, being part of the Southern Tagalog region, has Tagalog (the main basis of Filipino) as the language for everyday transactions though English is more than a second language to most people (especially to the professionals and the younger ones).
