A visit to Fort Pilar is certain to be an interesting experience.
It's in Zamboanga, a place that may not be well-known to every traveler. It is to be found 540 miles (869 kilometers) from Manila, the nation's capital.
If you don't plan to spend too much time commuting, book a room at the Ever O Business Hotel, only 0.6 miles (1.0 kilometer) away from Fort Pilar.
Craving some caffeine, a dessert or both to get ready for your next journey? 3rd Cup Cafe is a delightful place to have a quick bite and it's within walking distance of Fort Pilar. Also close-at-hand is Early Birds Shawarma, a well-patronized eatery that offers a selection of mouth-watering dishes. Why not finish a thoroughly enjoyable day by toasting your traveling companions? Get down to Bloc2, also a quick walk away, and order a round.
