The City of Calamba is a component city of Laguna, Philippines. It is the regional center of the Calabarzon region. Located 54 kilometres (34 mi) south of Manila, the city is known as the Resort Capital of the Philippines because of its numerous hot spring resorts locals and tourists flock to, which are mostly concentrated in Barangay Pansol, Bucal and Bagong Kalsada, including the innovative Republ1c Wakepark, and the two-hectare Wonder Island Resort in Laguna de Bay.
Calamba's major income sources comes from manufacturing and economic plants, tourism, agriculture and services. Upland barangays like Canlubang, Real, La Mesa, Milagrosa, Makiling, Punta, Barandal, Batino and Prinza are home to the many manufacturing and economic plants that contribute to Calamba's economy. At least 11 industrial parks are established in the city.
Despite the city's progress, Calamba has managed to respect its historical past, thanks to its ties to the country's national hero, Jose Rizal. Several tourist destinations in the city are original sites or homage to the decorated hero.
