Bonifacio Global City (BGC) is one of the cities that almost every hip millennial aspires to be at. From convincing your whole family to try yet another “artisanal” restaurant to eat at to finally setting up shop your dream start-up company — BGC has all the fun and the functionality to accommodate all your needs.
But aside from being cool and modern, BGC’s overall sense of place is so different from the usual city life that everyone knows of. It is an accepted fact that Manila is generally not a walkable city, that’s why the thing I love the most about BGC is that everyone walks everywhere. I’ve worked here for two years and for someone who hates walking in the city, I’ve practically covered 50% of the area by foot (c’mon, it’s a huge city). Basic amenities are within an arm’s reach (or okay, maybe a block away) but walking is not really much of a bother to anyone who resides or work here given its tidy environment.
