“Roxas City "The Seafood Capital of the Philippines"”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

Seafoods craving?
Come and join me as I went home to Roxas City known to be the Seafoods Capital of the Philippines...

As i stepped down from my Manila Flight to Roxas City Airport, I already smell the mixture of ricefields and sea breeze... I could even see my alma mater near the airport... I felt excited knowing I'm home at last... The first request I always ask from my mom is to let me eat fresh catch fish and alimango if available... I don't mind if I will suffer with the etchiness caused by my allergies.. I don't care anymore, knowing I always had my antihistamine with me...

As I steeped out of the airport i could still say that after all this years, nothing has change to this place.. though they now have taxi cab roaming in the city.. aside from that nothing added... still tricycle and jeepneys the mode of transportation. No traffic yet no additional establishment... the only mall they have was the Gaisano Mall which I find so little compare to the malls in manila and cebu... The church in the heart of the city was being renovated at last.

The only thing I like most when I'm staying is to be with my family and to eat seafoods at cheaper cost, sometimes for free...

Roxas City still preserving it's usual look... If only they advertise the beauty it has maybe a lot of tourist will also come to island hop, eat seafoods all they want, swim in the beaches all day long.. visit old churches around the Capiz Province, and explore the entire City Day and Night...

Beaches really are everywhere,... they also have white sand beaches with cottages good for overnight stays.. they also have Hotels though not as big as from other Cities... If you want some night life they also have bars, though I find it more relaxing to stay home and to be with my Family...

Fish and Crab are so cheap... I get crab for only 200-300/kg... and the Live Lapu Lapu and Bangus are cheaper too compare to some areas...

“quite interesting but limited”
Reviewed November 19, 2011

The place was interesting enough as it used to be a concrete water tank converted to a museum. There were some photos,artifacts and memorabilias, but very limited, maybe because the place is small. I don't even remember seeing anything about Sen. Mar Roxas.
