Every place has its uniqueness and beauty. But unlike any other place, Camarines Sur’s capital town Pili is something to look out for. This municipality is not just a mere capital, but an emerging center of commerce and a gateway to different places of leisure and attraction in the Bicol Region.

Here, we list the top reasons why living in Pili, Camarines Sur is worth considering.

A Progressive Municipality

Pili, Camarines Sur’s capital, is a First-class municipality located at the province’s heart. It is the 3rd largest commercial center in the entire Camarines Sur. Due to the increasing economic activities and steady progress of Pili, it is now also classified as a First-class municipality in terms of income classification. This is why Pili is now also preparing for its next big step – to become the next chartered city in Camarines Sur. 

A cityhood committee has been established to prepare for this significant change in the capital town. It has also been a long time since Pili is considered an extension of Naga City (which is adjacent to its north) due to the emerging business establishments present around the Naga-Pili boundary.

Specifically, car companies are quite a lot in the area, especially in the barangays of Palestina, Cadlan, and San Jose, the nearest ones to Naga City. Food and shopping businesses of both local and national brands are also significantly increasing at the town proper and along Maharlika Highway.

It is just the right time for Pili to become a city on its own, as the town presently serves its constituents and the populace of the neighboring towns and provinces.

Accessible Location

As mentioned, Pili is located at the heart of the province, making it accessible to the central districts of the province: Naga City and the Bikol Naga-speaking towns in the north and Rinconada Area at the south, both via Maharlika Highway; and Partido area on the east via Fuentebella Highway.

Bypass roads have also been built around the area leading to other municipalities. This is incredibly convenient for those traveling from neighboring provinces such as Albay or Camarines Norte, or even those traveling to Manila without passing through Naga City and avoiding possible traffic congestions. One of them is the Milaor-Pili bypass road, which is nearing completion.
