TAGUIG

Taguig City is a mix of residential, commercial and industrial. Its financial district is the Fort Bonifacio Global City or Bonifacio Global City, known as "BGC" to locals. BGC used to be part of the main Philippine Army camp. The makeover of the area started in 1995. Today, the 240-hectare area is the location of several corporate offices, high-end restaurants, posh stores, hotels, and condominiums. BGC also boasts plenty of notable street sculptures. Among the first ones that rose in BGC are "Trees" by Rey Paz Contreras, Ferdinand Cacnio's "Pasasalamat," Leo Gerardo Leonardo's "Balanghai," Juan Sajid de Leon Imao's "Kasaysayan Bawat Oras," Jerry Araos' "Kasalikasan," Lor Calma's "Transformation", and Leo Ben-Hur Villanueva's "Ang Supremo." Prior to the arrival of Spanish colonizers, Taguig was a flourishing settlement of rice farmers and fishermen. Studies also indicate that a good number of Chinese migrants also lived in the area, as proven by archaeological finds like porcelain plates and kitchen utensils bearing Chinese characters. Taguig City's landmarks include the Libingan ng mga Bayani or the Cemetery of the Heroes, which is where the remains of over 30,000 Filipinos who died in World War II and several notable Filipino personalities are buried. There's also the Manila American Cemetery and Memorial, which has over 17,000 graves. It is tagged as "the largest cemetery in the Pacific for US personnel killed during World War II." The remains of Filipino soldiers, as well as those from allied nations, are also buried in here.
