Barangay Profile

Barangay Tambo is primarily a residential, then a commercial community. Most of the commercial establishments and manufacturing companies are located along Quirino Avenue, MIA Rd, Roxas Blvd., Macapagal Avenue and Aseana City where soon to rise Entertainment City. These include Uniwide Coastal Mall, Pearl Plaza, Sony Warehouse, and Asia Brewery warehouse. There are also various restaurants, brokerages, commercial banks, gasoline stations, clinic and burger stands. This once grassy place has turned out to be a center of progress, maybe because of its proximity to such important hubs as Metro Manila's airports. Almost all business establishments are eyeing Tambo as one prime location where business can be really visible. This place will be known more because of the Boulevard 2000 project of the government in the reclaimed coastal area and now soon to rise Entertainment City. One of the attraction in this barangay is the ROLIGON Mega-Cockpit, which is considered the most modern and biggest cockpit in Asia. No wonder, people from other places and provinces even the curious foreigners visit the place. However, nature still maintains her own reserve at the Tambo mangroves located by the bay.

History

Tambo grows abundantly in the place that anyone who needs a “walis” may easily have one. From then on, the place has been called TAMBO. Local folks started building houses there and when it became densely populated not even a stalk of the tall grasses remain.
