Lovin’ The Southern Life: 4 Reasons To Live South Of Manila
MANILA, Philippines – Are you looking for the best place to live? Whether you want to be independent or planning to start a family, choosing the best place to live is an inevitable stage in life that is crucial for all.
One of the promising locations now in the Philippines for property investment and building a home is southern Metro Manila—Las Piñas, Muntinlupa, Parañaque, Taguig, Pasay, and Makati. Local property finder MyProperty.ph named Alabang, Bay City, BF Homes, Makati business district, and Bonifacio Global City as investment-worthy properties.
But it is not just the money sense that homebuyers like you should consider when choosing the perfect location for a home. You are also concerned about what your lifestyle is going to be like in a new place. Fortunately, in the South, you would worry less about it.
If you live in the South, you are near leisure hubs like Molito, Alabang Town Center, and Madison Galleries. These establishments have theaters, shopping centers, and several dining spots with a wide array of cuisines.
There are also several country clubs, such as Ayala Alabang Village’s Country Club, Palms, Canyon Woods, Orchard, and Tagaytay Highlands, within close proximity, which offer driving ranges, pools, and recreational amenities for the whole family.
Weekends and after-work evenings will never be a bore with all the entertainment and recreation you can get from these places.
If you think nightlife is dull in the South, you might be surprised by how the bars and the dining spots here cater to every type of after-work craving and social life.
The popular 19 East is perfect for music lovers who enjoy catching the must-see gigs of some of the country’s famous bands. Incognito Music Bar is for a chill night of jazz music and good food with friends.
For those who enjoy more exclusive spots with picturesque views, one of the best bars in the South, Vue Bar, is conveniently accessible at the Bellevue Hotel. Vapor Hookah Lounge is also a recommended spot.
A champagne bar also opened in the South for those who prefer an intimate setup with select wines and fine cuisine. It is called Caviar Restaurant and Champagne Bar.
One of the recently opened bars in the South, located along West Service Road, is Bar Pintxos. It is a neighborhood bar where a wide variety of wines, good cocktails, beers, and authentic Spanish pintxos and tapas can be enjoyed by anyone.
Living in south of Metro Manila does not actually draw you away from good job opportunities and reputable companies. Bonifacio Global City in Taguig and the Makati Central Business District are homes to countless multinational companies and big local corporations. It is also noteworthy how your daily drive can take only less than an hour with infrastructures like the Skyway.
But if you want to avoid heavy traffic and keep your drive to and from work at a minimum, there is the Madrigal Business Park, which many foreign investors pick to be their headquarters in building a Manila presence for their businesses.
As the southern part of Metro Manila becomes more appealing to home seekers, developers are quick to build communities that offer not only quality homes but also an enjoyable lifestyle.
