City of San Juan, Metro Manila



SAN JUAN CITY is a HISTORIC CITY right in the heart of Metro Manila. It is geographically small but very big in terms of cultural significance, social prominence, economic progress and tourism potentials.

San Juan is located at the very core of the metropolis. It only has a land area of 5.94 square kilometers, which accounts for a less than one percent of the total land area of National Capital Region, the urban center of the country. Its size has become an advantage because it is easier to manage and govern.

It is bounded by Quezon City to the North and East, Mandaluyong City to the South and Manila to the West.

This heart-shaped city has a total population of more than 200,000 presently.

There is more to San Juan than its colorful political and cultural history. The city has improved considerably all these years and merit must be given to the local government's constant effort to address the fundamental economic, social and political concerns, especially the enforcement of laws and anti-crime campaigns, to make it better and safer place to live and to do business.

San Juan is officially named, Municipality of San Juan del Monte before it was converted into a highly urbanized City of San Juan on June 17, 2007. It is located nearly in the center of Metro Manila; bordered by Quezon City to the north and east, Mandaluyong City to the south, and Manila to the west. It is the second smallest among the cities and municipalities in the metropolis.

It is a small, congested city and one of the smallest political subdivisions of the metropolis. It has a total land area of 5.94 sq. kms., that accounts for less than one percent of the total area of the National Capital Region. It has a population of 204,382 as of the year 2006.
