The best business district in Metro Manila

The Bonifacio Global City (BGC) or fondly called The Fort is the best business district in the Philippines to date. World class and safe.

This is the same as Bonifacio Global City. If you're a tourist, it's not the 'real' Manila that you may expect - but it's a welcome oasis in the chaos & noise. It used to be an army base known as The Fort, but was sold to developers at least ten years ago. The developers added more land and renamed... More

We are so happy to have chosen to live at The Fort. We find everything we need just a block away from our condominium. From the gym to all types of restaurants, shops, malls and there is the always colorful High Street. We enjoy strolling down on a Sunday afternoon and have a cup of coffee or ice cream in... More

This overdeveloped (from the old days) area, is now a commercial hub for easy living or visiting. Close to Global offices, banks, etc with local and international brands of shopping and restaurants at 'all' price levels. Many choices for hotel ranges and close to the train- if you choose to.

If I chose to retire in Manila, Makati would be my first choice followed by The Fort or Fort Bonifacio (formerly named as Fort McKinley). This area is newer than Makati, has many residential developments as well as several shopping centres. The only shopping centre I have visited so far is Market Market which is a good shopping centre.

My office is in the Fort and I really like the environment. Its the only place in Manila that you can walk, pavements are great. The mixture of F&B and office is excellent. It lacks quality hotels however.

Very nice place to stroll and people watch. They have tons of stores similar to the ones in the US and they have a good selection of restaurants. They also have Market Market! a couple of blocks away and SM Aura nearby. A good place to run.

Great place if you want that lounge feeling outside. A bit posh but still a relaxed place to hang out with food and some red horse.

I moved from Seattle to the Fort in 2011. It's changed so much. I can't say necessarily that it's been for the better since there's so much more traffic and so many more people. There's a lot less open land to just run, rollerblade and take walks without breathing in diesel or avoiding construction. In spite of all these things,... More
