Alabang

South Metro’s Business District

One would not usually expect such a chill place to be bursting at the seams with growth and activity but that is exactly what Alabang manages to do. Look around the place and you’ll see well developed roads and pedestrian facilities, a growing number of business, commercial, and residential skyscrapers, and the increasing traffic going in and out of the large barangay.

With lots of hotel choices and only a few minutes away from the busier parts of the Metro, Alabang is an ideal place for a staycation. If you’re thinking of a place to shop, the barangay also offers a number of shopping mall options like Festival Mall and Alabang Town Center.

To experience a bit of Alabang, try jogging around its green fields, walk around the well-planned urban center, eat at its food hubs, shop at its expansive malls, and maybe even book a hotel staycation with the family.
