Affordable Rent to Own House in Iloilo City
The Former Queen City of the South
The City of Iloilo was once renowned as the Queen City of the South, a title that it earned not only due to the fact that the city was the second city in the archipelago to be declared a chartered city, next only to the capital city of Manila, but also because of the fact that it was, and is still, considered to house one of the major trading ports in the Visayan region, even prior to colonization. The title is currently being held by the City of Cebu, but Iloilo wants it back. With the rich fishing grounds, the fertile lands, and the sheer willpower of the people therein, the City of Iloilo is an economic force to watch out for in the Visayan region.
While it houses rich and bountiful fishing grounds dedicated to the breeding of fishes like lapu-lapu, tuna, and blue marlin, its fertile lands are filled with the palay grains that have earned it the title of the Rice Granary of Western Visayas. Needless to say, agriculture and fishery are the bread and butter of the people of the City of Iloilo. This is also bolstered by the fact that the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, which provides research on marine resources, is located in the city.
Of course, bread and butter would not be complete without jam, and Iloilo finds its jam in the manufacturing industry that has started to thrive in the city. Various industrial companies dealing with the manufacture of agricultural, houseware, hardware, and other similar equipment, have set up shop in the city. Similar facilities dedicated to the manufacture of cans, electronics, and chemical products have also started to sprout therein. Finally, completing the meal would be a glass of milk. Iloilo’s milk is its successful logistical and tourism industries that have put the city on the map and kept people coming for years.
On one hand, the Port of Iloilo’s location attracts trade, considering that the Guimaras Islands protects the area from the harsh open sea. On the other, the reputation of the Province of Iloilo as the “Province of Festivals” attracts tourists from all over the world who would want to experience the art and culture that the famous Dinagyang Festival brings to the table. Of course, the Province also has a plethora of natural resources that may be enjoyed by tourists, including the mysterious caves of the Gigantes Island, the charms of Sicogon and its nearby islets, or the view of the Pan de Azucar’s silhouette in the town of Concepcion while being heralded the quaint stories and enchanting folklores of the Ilonggo people.
