The Philippines is a country in Southeast Asia that is situated in the Pacific Ocean. It is made up of over 7600 islands and is split into three geographical areas – Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. The country’s landscape is very diverse, with lush green mountains, white sandy beaches with azure blue waters, and busy, bustling cities with sky-high illuminated buildings. There is something for everyone in this stunning country, and it is an excellent place in which to set up home. If you are looking to broaden your horizons, why not consider relocating to the Philippines? Here are 3 great reasons why you should do so.
Manila is the capital city of the Philippines. It has a population of 1.78 million and is a patchwork of high-rise buildings, churches constructed in American, Spanish, and European style architecture, Spanish style houses with thick stone walls, barred windows, terracotta roof tiles, and modern ranch-style homes.
Other cities in the Philippines, such as Mandaluyong, are a paradise for shopaholics. The huge shopping malls are decorated luxuriously and filled with shops offering bargains for every budget.
There is no doubt that Filipino cities are exciting and thriving, and you won’t be short of things to do if you decide to make one of the cities in this beautiful country your home. Try before you buy and look for a condo for rent in Manila, Quezon City, Davao City, San Juan, and Palawan. The cost of living is very low in the Philippines, and you will find a three-bedroom property to rent in the city for around $390 per month and much less if you move out of the city.
The Philippines will surprise you with its scenery. The villages in the mountain areas are surrounded by lush greenery, hills, and rice terraces. The ancient rice terraces carved into the mountains of Banaue, Ifugao are considered by many to be the eighth wonder of the world and date back over 2000 years.
Being a country comprising of many islands, the Philippines is a beach lover’s paradise. The beaches are some of the most beautiful in the world, with white sand and pale blue waters. Keen divers will love exploring the oceans, which are treasure troves of underwater rivers, caves, and shipwrecks.
If you favor the bright lights of the city over countryside vistas, you will not be disappointed when you explore cities like Manila, Makati and Puerto Princesa. These cities are filled with buildings representative of different historical eras, spectacular shopping malls, exquisite churches and cathedrals and green parks.
Never Ending Nightlife
The nightlife in Filipino cities is exhilarating, and the party hotspots are Manila and Boracay. Prisma Bar in Boracay is situated on a white sandy beach, so you can let the waves lap around your toes as you party and watch the sun set. In fact, the nightlife on this most beautiful island is epic, and you can even partake in a pub crawl down the streets of Boracay.
People who enjoy clubbing will not be disappointed on a night out in the Philippines. The nightclubs are world-class and attract famous DJs and audio-visual technicians from all over the world.
So if the stunning scenery, tropical climate and buzzing city life appeals to you – why not make the move today!
