During the holiday season usually until the first week of January, Tangub’s plaza is filled with colorful and glowing structures of famous landmarks around the world. Visitors even get a passport to stamp as they enter each represented country’s attraction.
Riding around the city likewise gives a feel of world travel, as barangays’ welcome arches are also decorated as other countries’ famous landmarks.
How to get there: From Manila, take a flight to Ozamiz in Misamis Occidental. Tangub City is around 30 minutes away by bus.
