i've been to zambo pero as a hub lang. kasi this is the only way going to tawi-tawi and sulu. anyway, what i like about zambo is small lang siya and masayahin ang mga tao dito. I always stay at Orchid Garden Hotel. Walking distance lang siya from the airport. so kung magpapasundo kayo sa hotel, it can also be arranged.
they have this park. i think this is where the treehouse is located. they have this park where 14 (not sure with the number) of concrete tents tribute to all the boy scouts who went to a jamboree trip and had a plane crash. nice ang park kasi maraming pumupunta. free ang entrance. they also have this butterfly sanctuary and pool something. i forgot the name. was not so tempted to linger kasi daming tao and kinda dirty. (sorry)
zambo has 3 malls that i know of. The Gateway, Southway and Mindpro. Sa gateway ako namimili nung Alavar na crab sauce. and their alamang is the best. also try their spanish sardines.
Sa barter namn, you can find malong and shawls na mura. and you can also haggle. marami din dun mga products from malaysia like sotanghon na very good quality, mahling, mga coffee and mga chocolates and biscuits. haggle lang para makamura.
no taxi in zamboanga tricycle lang. minimum pag ikaw lang ang pasahero ang babayran mo is 20 pesos. from my hotel going to the gateway around 25 pesos. i'll post more kung may maalala pa ako.
