Top 30 Favorite Spots in the Philippines: 20. Dapitan City

It only took a day for me to fall in love with this dreamy and historic city in Zamboanga del Norte. Also called the Shrine City of the Philippines, Dapitan needs no further introduction to many of us since it has been prominently referenced to in our history classes as the place where our National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal, took his four years of productive exile during the Spanish period. 

After retracing his steps and learning how he had wonderfully spent his exile years there, I have come to fully appreciate the works of our national hero. Dapitan echoes a lot of memories about him and the dose of historic nostalgia blended with a pocketful of beautiful spots made my stay in this city unforgettable.

Some places not to be missed when in Dapitan are: Rizal's House, Dakak Park and Beach Resort, Dapitan Bay, St. James Church, city plaza, Punto Del Desembarco de Rizal, Relief Map of Mindanao, Goria de Dapitan, Dampa Restaurant, Aliguay Island, Dapitan City Hall.

My full blog about Dapitan will be posted here soon. :)
