Been covering #exploreBGC via @jdcgallery and it is very fun. There are new things around the city most of the time. There are lots of picturesque architectures and street arts everywhere. Vibrant skies are recently blending to its beautiful skyline. More exploration of @bonifacioglobalcity on @jdcgallery. #jdcphoto | #photoroad | #JDCinthecity
I’ve never been to Singapore yet. But some of my friends who already visited the country compare its ambiance to BGC (Bonifacio Global City).
BGC is the fastest growing city in Metro Manila and in the Philippines. It is also the first city to have green buildings and structures which are LEED certified. It is also known of its art installations scattered in the whole city. Condominiums are the city’s habitat to its people. These things and many others are just the common comparison I can say between BGC and Singapore.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Shopping malls, dine-ins, coffee and bake shops, sight seeing, picnics, physical and outdoor activities, photgraph-worthy installations, offices, events, and many more.
WHAT TO DO AND WHERE TO GO:
Shop and dine at Market! Market!, SM Aura, Bonifacio High Street and Central Square. Visit Kidzania, ActiveFun and Mind Museum for kids. Play, workout and picnic at Terra 28th and Track 30th. Roam the whole city and find the different art installations via BGCBus.
HOW TO GET THERE:
Via BGC Bus from EDSA – Go to Ayala Stop, BGC bus terminal is just next to MRT Ayala station located at the ground level of Telus building.
BGC Bus from C5 – Go to Market! Market! Find the BGC Bus stop along the C5 interchange.
Via car from EDSA – you can just turn to McKinley Hill Road. The other end of the road is the entrance to BGC from the south.
Via car from the metro south – if you are from Laguna, Muntinlupa, Parañaque or Taguig, BGC is accessible from FTI-C5 Road or Lawton inside Fort Bonifacio.
Via car from the metro east – if you are from Pasig, Marikina or Rizal, BGC can be accessed via C5 Road. An entrance is just right after you pass by the Buting interchange.
Via car from Manila – take EDSA and turn to McKinley Hill Road.
Via car from Makati – take Ayala Avenue and straight to McKinley Hill Road.
Via car from Mandluyong, QC, San Juan, Valenzuela, Bulacan and Pampanga – take EDSA. You can turn to Guadalupe, Makati and take the Rizal Road from the North of BGC or McKinley Road in Ayala Makati.
See you there! 🙂
