Caloocan is divided into two separate portions, with a bit of Valenzuela separating the northern section from the southern, so don’t worry if you get confused. In Caloocan, pong is king, so tap it back like the locals and take a ping-pong tutorial, or challenge your mates to a game. Table tennis is competitive in the Philippines, so don’t expect to be tossing balls into beer cups. If you aren’t feeling sporty, go shopping and brush up on Indonesian history along the way. Caloocan is a bargain hunter’s paradise, with the commercial hub around the Andres Bonifacio Monument in South Caloocan, which honors the man who led the Katipunan. Before you get too riled up, head to the parks in La Mesa Watershed in Quezon City and relax in one of the luxury hotels near Caloocan.
When you book flights to Caloocan, plan to arrive in Manila at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL), just 32 km south of upper Caloocan. Once you’ve landed, enjoy some coastal breezes before driving one of Wotif’s car hire options to your hotel in Caloocan for check in.
