The boutiques here reminds me of how most boutiques are abroad, That is, its one beside each other and mostly one story buildings. The good thing here is that they closed an hour later than the malls. But I will wait until the sun goes down to shop here coz it can get pretty hot during afternoons going from one shop to the other.

If you were to live at the fort, you would have everything you would need right at your doorstep. You dont need to go anywhere else. Pretty much everything is just a short walk away. From restaurants, malls, cinema, coffee shops, bookstores, name it, the fort or more popularly know as bonifacio global city has it. If you a health/sports buff, join the evening/morning jog around bonifacio high street or even join the countless fun run that happen almost every week. For the party-animal you have options to just stay at the fort strip or go the other clubs/bars at Burgos circle. The fort is also a haven for business during the days as several multinational companies house their offices in several skyscrapers in this small community. Traveling to and from BGC is no biggie as there are several bus that traverse the entire are passing by almost every street. Because of this traffic congestion is also a big problem during rush hour. Tips to commuters, avoid going to BGC during early morning (8am) and late afternoon (5-6PM) as all roads are on bumper-to-bumper traffic. It is a booming area with high-rise buildings constructed every so often. I even get confused when im in BGC as the streets dont look the same everytime im there as new buildings are built.

Nice place to shop or window shop. Open air, open spaces and its especially nice to browse through shops late in the afternoon till closing time, which is usually 10pm. Good restaurants, too; and bars to hang out with friends. Don't go on a rainy day or night, though, unless you like walking in the rain---- better yet, take this opportunity to show off your fancy rain boots or rain gear:-) its that kind of place where people won't raise their eyebrows at you for wearing fashionable or fancy gears :-)

If I were a foreigner visiting Manila, I would prefer to stay at the Fort more than anywhere else in the metropolis. It is still relatively not congested as the other Metro Manila areas. There are numerous parks (mind you with trees, which is getting rarer in Metro Manila) where families and individuals can jog, exercise, walk, read a book, ruminate, meet people, play or just sit down watching people come and go. There is soccer every afternoon in the Fort's lone soccer field. There are numerous shops and restaurants to go to. But among the shopping malls I personally prefer High Street best because it is an outdoor mall that has lots of interesting architectural and landscape features and shops. It is so unlike the congested airconditioned malls dotting Metro Manila. There are also numerous hotels and condotels that can be rented. It is accessible to the airport and is a convenient gateway to the MRT,Makati and other major cities in the country. Most of all, it is a safe community, relatively free from crime.

Been coming here since the place was opened to the public. But went here this weekend and much has changed. There are more night-life areas to go to, more establishments but still a friendly place for a walk with the family. This is indeed an all in one area. They have huge residential places, restaurants (most are the ones you cant find anywhere near), the malls are stunning as they have erected a new mall recently which adds to the variety of stuff to see. This has been and i think was still one of the best places to work out specially if you love to run. I would say a must see place in Manila
