Pasig is an 18.71 sq mile city where a large group of people presently resides in. It encompasses a huge part of Manila and is one of the most urbanized areas in the region. Aside from its interesting history, Pasig has sustained its profit through its tourist attractions. The following are the top 5 tourist spots in Pasig:

Tiendesitas

Tiendesitas is a one-of-a-kind shopping mall that puts on sale a wide array of Filipino commodities. They sell woven bags, Marikina-made footwear, Filipino-designed furniture and the like. They take pride in ensuring that their customers patronize products made by our countrymen. This is also the perfect place for pet lovers, for it allows owners to roam around the mall with their pets. Moreover, if you want to try something different, you may avail of their Kalesa rides.

Rainforest

Though an under-rated but definitely a ‘must go-to’ place, Rainforest has proven that it can withstand even the strongest storm. After being submerged in water in year 2009 when Ondoy struck Manila, it remained to be the best place for recreational activities in Pasig. If family picnics and kite flying is your kind of pastime then this is the perfect place for you.

Lopez Museum and Library

For those of us who prefer to further widen our knowledge on history and literature, Lopez Museum and Library is the place to go. With over 19,000 Filipiniana Titles and a huge collection of manuscripts and literary works, this museum will give us a glimpse of the important historical events that transpired in our nation.

Immaculate Conception Cathedral

Immaculate Conception Cathedral is one of the biggest churches in Pasig. It was decreed as the Roman Catholic Diocese by Pope John Paul II in 2003. The plaza where most religious festivities and processions are usually held is right across the church.

Cuartel del Guardia Civil

Near the Immaculate Conception Cathedral is Cuartel del Guardia Civil. It is known as the second oldest house in Pasig. This is very apt for tourists who want to be spooked out a bit, don’t you think?

Be sure to check out these places on your stay at Discovery Suites hotel in Ortigas Center, Pasig.

  • COZY AND HOMEY. This was our 6th or 7th stay and the staff is still very accommodating. The location is strategic being right beside convenience stores, mall, and restaurants… I can say we plan to make it a habit to greet the new year here.”

  • OUTSTANDING AND FRIENDLY SERVICE. The service at the facility is outstanding from arrival to departure. Any thing you ask for is done promptly and with a smile. The gym is pretty good with all the requirements of a hotel gym, with sauna, personal trainers and group classes.”

  • COMFORTABLE HOME AWAY FROM HOME. I stayed in the Discovery suites hotel for 7 weeks in March and April while in Manila for work. And it was very easy for me to start calling it home after a few days! The location is great – podium mall across the street, Starbucks next door and across the street, megamall and Robinson’s galleria only a couple of blocks away.”
