Owner description: The Fort also known as Bonifacio Global City is a mixed use development area with tidy streets, parks, offices, residential skyscrapers, public art displays and various dining, shopping and entertainment venues. The district is named after the main Philippine Army camp in Metro Manila, Fort Andres Bonifacio. Andres Bonifacio is a Philippine revolutionary hero.

The Fort has become the new Makati from my childhood. It is nice, clean, organized and not so crowded. The neighborhood is currently undergoing a construction boom with a dozen building cranes dotting the skyline. I loved the spacious sidewalks, with handicapped ramps, where you don't have to worry about elbowing someone next to you. It does have a mini park where people do calisthenics and martial arts but they need a bigger one in my opinion. I hope they build one with a bike trail, children's playground and maybe a water park! As other reviewers have noted. the neighborhood is filled with mid to high rise buildings, shops, cafes and restaurants. This place would be my place to go to on a weekend nights.

Having been in the neighborhood a few years back I was shocked to see a new city built in such a short time. This once military camp is now a set of new/almost finished/in construction skyscrappers and shops. The main shopping street has a lot of greens and there are a few square's which the city decided to use for recreation areas (v. expensive but good idea). The place is worth a stop-by, especially as it is on the way to the US cementary.

The Fort used to be a military base. It is now the newest financial and commercial development in the country rivaling that of nearby makati. A construction boom of new and modern skyscrapers dot the area. It is worth a visit to sample the many restaurants offering varied international and national cuisines. It also has a sprawling shopping complex where you can find local and international brands.

The fort has many hotels and shopping places, with the High Street Mall being the most famous. Definitely the best place to stay when travelling to Manila

Huge, open-air and sprawling! The landscaping is a huge break and it's like bringing back the family to the park, not to the malls.
