Taguig City is one of the most populous cities in the Philippines for its prosperous residential, commercial, and industrial progress in recent years. It’s one of Metro Manila’s highly urbanized cities, housing Bonifacio Global City (BGC), one of the country’s biggest business districts alongside those of Makati City and Ortigas. As expected, many lifestyle developments have been put up in this thriving city which has become a social hub for many millennials and young professionals.
These developments aren’t just malls. They’re full package lifestyle centers that place utmost priority on providing unhurried leisure options while still maintaining a standard of style.
- Bonifacio High Street
Perhaps on the earliest establishments in BGC, Bonifacio High Street is a retail haven stretching through four blocks. It offers a mix of high-end and diverse cuisines, fashion brands, and health and wellness stores. Many outdoor activities take place in Bonifacio High Street, including concerts, food fairs, and theatrical productions. In 2012, Central Square mall opened, which offered visitors with spectacular movie experiences.
- Forbes Town Center
Forbes Town Center is a five-hectare township adjacent to the exclusive Manila Polo Club, Manila Golf and Country Club, and Forbes Park. Forbes Town Center is popularly known because of Burgos Circle, one of the city’s famous landmarks because of its strip of high-end restaurants, coffee shops, and bars. At the middle of Burgos Circle is Reynato Paz Contreras’ The Trees, a famous tree sculpture that rests in the garden at the middle of the rotunda that can barely be missed by those that pass by the area.
- Uptown Bonifacio
Uptown Bonifacio is a complete community. It’s a booming urban development with residential condominiums, business establishments, and high-end malls. The development is one of the best places to find a condo for rent in BGC, Taguig. Uptown Mall is home to the first 24-hour weekend cinema in the entire city. And if that isn’t enough, its VIP Cinema serves unlimited popcorn and drinks too! Aside from superb retail choices, Uptown Mall’s food court has some of the widest choices and the refined interiors. Uptown Parade, on the other hand, is directly across Uptown Mall, and is quickly becoming Taguig’s largest nightlife destination. Aside from being home to The Palace Pool Club and Valkyrie Nightclub, restaurants can also be found in Uptown Parade, adding to the list of must-try culinary experiences for families and friends who visit.
These developments continually raise the standards of leisure and style. They are the reason why Taguig City has quickly become a favorite destination for shopping, hanging out, and nightlife.
