According to Jon (2018), Bulacan it is one of the frequently-visited provinces in the Philippines for its wondrous beauty and proximity to the city. Located at the northern part of the National Capital Region, Bulacan is a city found at the heart of the Central Luzon region. With its vast land area and their colorful culture, there are many places and activities you can try out. Before the Spaniards arrival and occupation in the Philippines, Bulacan was an area of scattered barangays headed by chieftains, whose names were dubbed with “Gat” in their names. Early settlers of the Bulacan province were known for their qualities such as honesty, peace-lovingness, and industriousness. These early settlers have made a living out of the industries present during that time such as fishing, farming, and handicrafts. Given that it has stood as a silent witness of many historical events, there are also places and landmarks in the province that have done the same. The most popular among these is the Barasoain Church in Malolos, Bulacan—which is considered as one of the manifestations of the rich cultural heritage of the province. Barasoain Church was birthplace of the First Constitutional Democracy in Asia. Considering its proximity to the country’s National Capital Region, Bulacan is continuously industrializing. As a matter of fact, Bulacan is gradually becoming home to sprouting industrial plants for businesses such as agriculture, agribusiness, cement-making, construction, food processing, furniture, and the like. Aside from the sprouting industries, another source of income for many Bulakenyos is their tourism industry. Being home to many wonderful, accessible and very affordable resorts and hotels, it is no wonder why. Listed below are some of the most popular resorts and hotels in the province.
