2022 Shariff Kabunsuan Festival: Showcasing Bangsamoro’s Storied History and Colorful Culture

December 19, 2022


Every year, Cotabato City honors the life of the man credited with bringing Islam to Mindanao with a week-long festival. Shariff Kabunsuan, to whom the celebration is named after, was an Arab-Malay from Johore, Malaysia who led an expedition to the islands of Lanao and Maguindanao in the early 16th century to preach Islam.

Every time I visit Clark Freeport Zone, I always wish I’d stay for a few days to thoroughly enjoy the area.  Aside from the numerous dining and café options, it is always a good idea to wake up and enjoy a quick run along the neighborhood's spacious pedestrian and bike lanes, hang out at the various parks, or simply chill at one of the many fancy hotels located within the Freeport Zone.
