People seeking to move to our city should consider the traffic and the cost of living. Pasig is very accessible, but roads in and out of the city are usually jammed at any time of the day. And despite being accessible, the cost of living in Pasig is higher compared to where we used to love in the province. So these two, I think, are the biggest factors that people need to consider before moving to our city.

Pasig City has its own business district and serves as the hub of several local and multinational companies. It is home to several shopping malls and has rows of restaurants that draw people any day of the week. Most residents here live in condominium buildings and gated communities. Cost of living here is higher than comparable cities in the metro.

My city is located where there are many low cost commercial and residential buildings for rent. There are also a lot of easy access terminals for commuters. Most of the highways have pedestrian sidewalks and bicycle lanes whenever you want to ride your bike to work or to the grocery stores.

For someone who will moving here, hospitality and warm smiles will be wherever he/she goes. Filipinos are well-known for being hospitable and friendly, so it will be easy to make new friends and build rapport among the neighbors. The location is also perfect for night-outs because there are a lot of late night restaurants and pubs that offers different cuisines at affordable prices.

Pasig City is known for its good local governance. It is also actively pushing for a “green” campaign, evident in its lush rainforest. Pasig is also known to house the capital district “Ortigas Avenue”. However, Pasig is known for having a much higher tax rate on real-estate properties than other cities.

In the Philippines, people are cheerful and hospitable. people are also resilient that whatever comes, they are always ready to face them. In terms of business, there is much lower manpower cost and manufacturing is best while workers ensure quality products. Foreigners love visiting Philippines for a number of reasons.

To someone moving here, one must know how to be patient with the heavy traffic that happens in the city. He/she must also be aware of the city’s temperature, for it could be really hot at some days. It is also strategic to live in my city since it is the central point to reach other cities or region. And since this is an urbanized city, one must consider the cost of living, for it is more expensive compared to other cities.
