PASAY

Pasay City is a mix of residential and commercial establishments. It also boasts of landmarks like the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) and the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC), the latter of which has the distinction of being Asia's first international convention center. There are many stories about how Pasay got its name, but the one that is given most weight is rooted in its pre-colonized history. Sometime around 1175, the Kingdom of Namayan flourished in the area. A princess of the kingdom named Dayang-dayang Pasay was said to have inherited the lands that now make up Pasay.
