Overnight in Asia's Latin City : ZAMBOANGA CITY

Zamboanga City is  located in southern Mindanao. It  is also known as "Asia's Latin City".

Our scheduled  flight via Airphil express  was in the afternoon. We proceed to the city proper to look for the inn were we made our reservation. Sad to say  the reservation officer didn't confirm our booking so we looked for another hotel where we could stay for the night. We decided to stay in Sky Park Hotel since we founnd it comfortable and safe. After leaving our things in our room, we went to Alavar Seafoods House for a luscious dinner.

After dinner we  strolled along PASEO Del MAR.  Policemen and security guards was everywhere. We felt it  was safe to go out during the night.  At around 10:00pm we head back to the hotel.
