Cavite City

Ahoy, Incredible Wanderers!

Let’s have a recap, shall we? We’ve visited two cities of Cavite, Kawit & Imus. For the conclusion of this trip, I’m going to take you to Cavite City, the place where majority of the people can speak Chavacano (Spanish language). The places that I visited have easy accessibility so the the historic island of Corregidor is not included in this journey. Some other time, right? Let’s start!

It’s nice to walk around the Governor Samonte Park because it’s peaceful in this area with a few people strolling and the surroundings are clean. The City Hall is located at the end of the park.
