Down South: Refreshing Retreats in the City

For some of us, Metro Manila’s south area may seem too far away—probably because of the traffic situation we encounter on the way there. But in fact, you can reach this part of the metro in just 30 minutes or so on a good day.

Southern Metro Manila is a food haven. There’s plenty of themed and nicely decorated restaurants that also receive high praise for the quality of the food they serve. The south is also brimming with shopping malls, well-kept parks, and significant buildings. Maybe now’s the time to give this section another chance and spend a meaningful staycation there.

Check out these hotels we highly recommend:

1. Crimson Hotel Filinvest City Manila
