There, you will find both high-end clubs and bars and a lively red light district. Another advantage of the area is that Makati is centrally located and many hotels and apartments are located there. We recommend you to go to Makati Avenue for a variety coffee houses, restaurants, bars and clubs.

This area is also called BGC or The Fort and is a newer business district that competes with the previously mentioned famous business district, Makati. However, this area is even more modern and attracts expats as well as younger people from the Philippines. Bonifacio Global City is built on a grid, which implies that it is fairly easy to go from one place to another. This area is probably the safest in Metro Manila.
