Paranaque wants to be known as Bay City
Parañaque City aims to be the country’s top tourist and entertainment destination with the rise of numerous world-class hotel resorts and leisure facilities in the area.
Mayor Edwin Olivarez said Parañaque will now be called “Bay City,” a new label that aims to transform the city into a tourist-friendly place.
“We are confident that our new nickname, the Bay City, will make Parañaque not only the country’s top tourist and entertainment destination but also one of the best in the whole Asia-Pacific region as well,” he said.
He attributed Parañaque’s economic surge partly to huge developments in Pagcor Entertainment City, a 100-hectare mixed-use complex along Manila Bay that features world-class casinos, hotels, shopping and leisure destinations, theatres and marinas.
