Where is Dagupan City

Dagupan, officially the City of Dagupan, is the only coastal independent component city in the province of Pangasinan. The city has a land area of 37.23 square kilometers (14.37 sq. mi.) crisscrossed by seven (7) rivers and fourteen (14) creeks. It is also a competitive component city and even ranked first in overall competitiveness compared to other cities in the Ilocos Region.

Dagupan is known for being the top producer of the world’s tastiest and juiciest pond-raised bangus (milkfish), making it the “World’s Bangus Capital.” Dagupan is also one of the proposed metropolitan area in the Philippines. As a proposed independent metropolitan city, Metro Dagupan is set to include the independent component city of Dagupan, as well as the towns of Binmaley, Calasiao, Lingayen, Manaoag, Mangaldan, Mapandan, San Fabian, San Jacinto, and Santa Barbara. In the meantime, Dagupan is not yet a metropolitan city, but it still houses the commercial, educational, and health centers of the province, allowing it to attract people from different parts of the province of Pangasinan.

Dagupan serves as a major commercial and financial center in the north of Manila. Though the land use is primarily for agriculture, some parts are reserved for commercial, industrial, institutional, government, or private parks, and roads. It is also one of the centers of modern medical services, education, media and communication in North-Central Luzon. As a major regional commercial hub, many people in Pangasinan and nearby provinces commute to the city during the day, resulting in the drastic rise in the city’s daytime population as well as the worsened traffic to certain parts of the city, particularly in the downtown area. It also serves as a vital financial center housing numerous banks, non-bank financial institutions, headquarters of corporations and offices of major government departments and agencies.

Geographically, it is located within the fertile Agno River Valley and is in turn a part of the larger Central Luzon plain. It lies along the shorelines of the Lingayen Gulf on the northwest-central part of the island of Luzon and is bordered by Lingayen Gulf in the north, San Fabian in the northeast, Mangaldan in the east, Calasiao in the south, and Binmaley in the west. 

Google Map Location

Dagupan is connected to other major cities by networks of national roads. There’s the Romulo Highway connecting it to Pangasinan, the La Union Road (N55) connecting it to Urdaneta, and the Dagupan Road (N56) which works as principal highways that serve the city. Transport options include intercity/interprovincial buses, taxi service, or modern PUVs, otherwise known as modern jeeps. There used to be a Philippine National Railways (PNR) that served the city via the Dagupan station, but it went defunct in the late 1980s. Naturally, driving a private car is also always an option.
