Taguig (formerly spelled as "Tagig"; Filipino: "Lungsod ng Taguig") is a city in Metro Manila in the Philippines. From a thriving fishing community along the shores of Laguna de Bay, it is now an important residential and industrial suburb of Manila. The recent construction of the C-5 highway and the acquisition of the Fort Bonifacio development area has paved the way for the cityhood of the municipality.

Taguig City lies on the western shore of Laguna de Bay and is bordered by Muntinlupa City to the south, Parañaque City to the southwest, Pasay City to the west, Cainta and Taytay on the northeast and Makati City, Pateros, and Pasig City to the north. Taguig River, a tributary of the Pasig River cuts through the northern half of the municipality and Napindan River, also a tributary of the Pasig forms the common border of Taguig with Pasig City.

The city ranked first among Philippine cities in the Ease of Doing Business Index, conducted by the World Bank's International Finance Corporation [ [http://www.doingbusiness.org/Philippines World Bank Group - System Maintenance ] ] .

Barangays

Taguig City is politically subdivided into 18 barangays together with Fort Bonifacio as a special economic and development district.
