REASONS to VISIT the beautiful province of TARLAC…the MELTING POT of CENTRAL LUZON

“During the Philippine Revolution of 1896, Tarlac was among the first eight provinces to rise against the Spain. It became the new seat of the first Philippine Republic in June 1899 when Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo abandoned the former capital, Malolos, Bulacan”…wow! Tarlaquenos are indeed born heroes..i didn’t know this. Where am i when we discuss this in the class?…sleeping…maybe

“Tarlac is the most multicultural of the Central Luzon provinces. A mixture of four district groups, the Pampangos, Ilocanos, Pangasinenses, and Tagalogs, share life in the province”…no wonder i am both ilocana and kapampangan…

Tarlac is best known for its fine foods and vast sugar and rice plantations. That it has fine cooking to offer is due largely to the fact that it is the melting pot of Central Luzon. It offers some of the best cuisines from the places of ancestry of its settlers, the provinces of Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Zambales, Pangasinan, and the Ilocos Region.

Historical sites, fine food, vast plantations, a beautifully landscaped golf course, and so many other attractions – all these make the province of Tarlac one of the best of the places to visit in Central Luzon.
