Marikina Tourist Traps

    Know your Direction

    by julia_r Written Mar 25, 2008

    Know where is north and south for you might be lost.....
    The stretch of restaurants on the left and on the right looks the same to me... since they are not those really well known resto. They are like single proprietor or family owned and grown small restos that serves local or filipino food.

    Unique Suggestions: For best results, bring some one along who knows the place... i my self got lost after we went over the bridge...

    Hi Sir/Ma'am

    I would just like to make a suggestion in order to give a more accurate information about Marikina City. Marikina City is not part of Rizal Province, it is part of Metropolitan Manila (Metro Manila). It's true that it is the last city in Metro Manila that serves as a boundary between Metro Manila and Rizal Province but it was never a part of Rizal Province. I hope this would be corrected. Thank you.
