In 2012, the first provincial mall of Starmall opened in San Jose del Monte, Bulacan and became a family destination, a place where family members can find whatever they need. If you live in Amaia Steps Altaraza, you can easily get all your household needs from here.
With a total lot area of 52,522 square meters, the mall has almost 300 stores and shops as well as services centers. It has a wide option of quality branded goods.
The shopping mall has several food outlets offering their own specialties, an al fresco, and greenery-lined walkways connecting the main mall to Quirino Highway. There are also fast food chains and casual dine-in restaurants.
Entertainment is a priority at the mall. From time to time, Starmall San Jose del Monte in the Culture Capital of the Philippines offers mallgoers exciting activities such as mall shows and outdoor concerts at its own amphitheater.
Another exciting feature of the mall is its 90-seater Dolby Atmos cinema and the most affordable one in the Philippines for the San Joseños. Its affordability is unexpected for a cinema outside Metro Manila, but Starmall San Jose del Monte took the initiative.
The three-level mall is conveniently situated along Quirino Highway corner Kaypian Road in Brgy. Kaypian, San Jose del Monte, Bulacan. It is specifically located at Northwinds City 1. It opens from 10 am to 9 pm, from Mondays thru Sundays.
Bulacan is regarded as the northern gateway of Manila, opening doors to other tourist destinations in the North.
Pangasinan, specifically Alaminos, is your intended destination if you want to go island hopping. This is where one hundred islands are found, remember? You can go to Shell Beach and Governor’s Island. The former has a secret lagoon that you can uncover while the latter is for adrenaline junkies with its 70-foot cliff and underwater cave.
Speaking of caving, there are at least three more caves to explore, namely Quirino, Nalso, and St. Paul’s Subterranean caves.
Ilocos Sur is one of the North’s pride, especially Vigan, which is a 16th-century town that is always on the list of must-visit places in the country. Its cobblestone stone streets alone are worth the visit.
Several heritage museums such as Crisologo Museum, Syquia Mansion, and Padre Burgos Museum are a place to brush history up.
Mountain Province is mostly known for Sagada where one can go hiking and trekking. There are also bat caves to visit and hot springs to explore.
Another must-visit is the hanging coffins found in Echo Valley. Sumaguing Cave, with stunning rock formations, is a good place for spelunking. Bok-od Falls or what the locals call the “Big Falls” is the place to be if you want to go swimming.
