1,489 Municipalities in the Philippines
The philippines is divided into Regions, Provinces, Cities, Municipalities, and Barangays.
- Below is a list of municipalities listed in Alphabetical Order.
- To get the list of municipalities within each province, go to the Province page.
The Philippine Government defines a municipality as "a political corporate body which is endowed with the facilities of a municipal corporation, exercised by and through the municipal government in conformity with law. It is a subsidiary of the province which consists of a number of barangays within its territorial boundaries, one of which is the seat of government found at the town proper (poblacion)".
One very important factor to remember is that MUNICIPALITIES are not classified as CITIES. The list of cities in the Philippines will continue to increase as municipalities later become cities.
- As municipalities become cities the number of municipalities will diminish. However, as municipalities can reduce in number they may also increase in number. The number of municipalities may increase as Municipalities or Provinces get subdivided.
A municipality must qualify to be classified as a city.

|The presidents of the Philippines haven't shown any respect for the Barangay system. Not a single president so far has honored the name of the barangay where the Malacañang Palace is located in. Will the 16th president (Duterte) be the first to start respecting the barangay system? So far he hasn't. As citizens, you can ask the president to do so. You can also help update the barangay pages in two ways: (1) by sending your information or pictures via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, (2) by messaging your information or pictures via Facebook.|

Note: Since 1997 Zamboanga.com has been trying to convince all the municipalities, cities and provinces to mention the name of the barangay where the municipality hall, city hall and provincial capitol is located in. We even wrote letters to the president requesting that the Malacañang palace shows the name of the barangay where it is in.

MANILA – Canada has included the Philippines in its Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) program granting eligible Filipinos traveling by air for either business or leisure visa-free entry. “Canada is a destination of choice for so many around the world. We’re making it easier for more people to visit Canada, whether they’re coming to do business, sightsee, or reunite with family and friends," Canadian Foreign Minister Mélanie Joly said in an Embassy of Canada release Wednesday. "Expanding the eTA program to include countries like the Philippines is also an important part of our Indo-Pacific Strategy, as we look to further engage in the region, build on people-to-people ties, and make travel to Canada easier, faster, and safer for everyone."
