The Perks of Living Outside of Manila, Down South

There was a time the metropolis of Manila was a “heaven” to most Filipino. As an area considered to be the country’s capital, Manila is unsurprisingly thriving as a center of commerce in a country which tries to keep up with the rest of the developing world.

Back in history when the idea of making it big in life among Filipinos would mean being in one of two places—within the city of Manila or elsewhere abroad in a country deemed as having a “greener pasture”— many, for the logical reason of personal benefits, would choose a place more familiar yet significantly distant that is the former of the two. It is, after all, far easier to save up some money to ride a bus towards the Metro than to board a plane and altogether migrate to a different place of living outside of the country.

For many years, this has been the notion among Filipinos. As a result, the city that was once looked upon as “heaven” has now become a congested and overcrowded place to live in and whose promise of making it big for any person is enveloped with uncertainty.

This is not to say that there is not anything good in Manila—in fact, there are. Much of what are considered comforts and conveniences of the modern world can be easily found in the city. At the right setting, this may be indeed a place of heaven as was described to those who have known it but only to those who have capability to live in such regard—simply not for everyone.

Sad as it is to say, this was true back in those days yet at the same time, it is also truer still at the present.


Why stick to an overcrowded place when there are other places as good down south?

Luckily, at the present, if you are living in places just below the geographical Manila—specifically in the provinces of Batangas, Cavite or Laguna—you are not missing much. Finding a home and living a life of comfort can also be found in any of these provinces, minus the hassles of an overcrowded metro like Manila. If the need arises you can easily go to manila as these provinces are less than an hour away and public transportation is easily available.

The perks of living in any of these places include:

  • With development in full swing in these areas, there are no shortages of commercial business districts, From leisure Malls to restaurants and groceries. Anything that you need is only a few distance away without the need to go to the metro.

  • Ease of transportation. With not much people going to and from on the street, moving between places is smooth and a breeze. No more 1 or so hours of putting up and getting stuck in the traffic, get to where you need to be in time even if you’re going to or from the metro.

  • Less people, less traffic. Unlike a heavily congested place such as Manila, provinces that are less dense display smoother quality of transportation, true to both public utility vehicles and private cars.

  • Cheaper houses. Why pay for more for the same or even better quality when you can get it lesser in the provinces down south? Cheaper also means you can stretch your budget and allot it to other things, like a bigger lot perhaps.

  • Cleaner environment. If you’re concerned about you and your families health, places of less toxic environments like those in these provinces make for an ideal retreat or retirement for a good health.

  • Ideal place for raising a family. Whether you are native to the great metro or not, knowing that you are only a province away is enough to keep in touch with the relatives you leave behind while building your own family.
