Malolo City

Our town, Malolos, is just 45 kilometers north of Manila + you will be here in less than an hour coming from Trinoma.  It was also the capital of the province of Bulacan + became a city in 2002. It is considered the 115th city in the country + is just 30 minutes (I am guessing here, you know how I am with numbers!) away from Pampanga.

Malolos City, Barasoain Church

We are most famous for the historical Barasoain Church (a photo of which I sent out to my postcrossing friends a few months back), which played a very significant role in our country’s history +  the sinful decadent, Inipit (a type of pastry).

Other significant landmarks in our city includes the Kalayaan Tree, situated in front of the Malolos Cathedral + The Immaculate Conception School for Boys, Barasoain Museum, Museo ng Bulacan, the Casa Real Shrine + a host of most of the provincial government offices along with the Provincial Capitol office + ground.

If you visit, especially during the summer, you might want to try swimming in one of our resorts. You can choose between DJ Paradise Resort + Malolos Club Royale, or try out the other ones too! You might also want to visit Cabanas Mall or stroll in the Bulacan State University Campus or the provincial park.

I also recommend you try riding our very own mode of transportation, the Karatig, this is a modified owner-type passenger utility vehicle which is shorter than your normal Jeepney, it is only a 10-seater but coasts the main thoroughfares in the city + will bring you anywhere you want to go around town.

Shame I don’t have personal photos to share, maybe I should go around my town + take those snapshots!  Those snapshots will make good material for personalized postcards! Who’s with me? 😉

  1. How nice of you to be living there in Bulacan! I think, if I remember it right, I used to memorize this place as one of the historical places in my History/Geography class back in elementary and high school. I hope to visit this place someday! 🙂

  4. It sounds so near Metro Manila yet feels so far away. I haven’t been to Malolos but I think I’ve been to Meycauayan once. I honestly wanted to visit the churches here in the Philippines because of the history that surrounds and the architectural design. Maybe in the near future we could have a road trip there.

    Visiting via Tuesday Travels. Hope to see you in my second home Marikina City.

  5. we stopped by Barasoain and your capitol on our way to Pampanga a few years ago. I really had fun visiting your place. Hopefully, I can revisit it.
