Anything interesting in the Sucat/Muntinlupa/BF Homes area?

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I’m renting a condo in this area, I chose it mainly because of its proximity to the airport, since I want to spend this year exploring my options (eg visiting different places in and outside the Philippines). For now, I know where the malls, markets and pharmacies are and everything is very convenient for a short stay (just like I intended), but my question is: is there anything interesting in this area that I haven’t found yet, especially bars and nightlife-wise? Because of health concerns I don’t go out a lot anyway, but it would be nice to know if there is something nearby...

Just what are you looking for? For example you are not that far from the casinos which have live bands and stuff. Lots of coffee houses around that have a guitar player sometimes. Your just a tad broad to help a lot :89:

Anything where a 45 year old foreigner would feel comfortable hanging out for a couple of hours. Health-wise, I try to avoid loud/noisy places, but I know that in Manila,  that is hard to find, so I welcome any and all recommendations. I mentioned my health problems because I wanted to avoid getting answers like “Maybe you should go live near Burgos St. in Makati”, because I’m definitely not fit enough to go out more than once or twice a week...

 

For example, these coffee houses, can you be more specific? Around where exactly?

I think if you want something chill, I would really recommend BF Homes. They have at least 3 Mulligans pub and a Rue Bourbon. Just stay away from Central and Dry Dock since that's where most of the students go and it might ruin the experience for you. They also have decent cafes like Magnum Opus. It's easy to go there but I wouldn't recommend booking Grab when going out since their exit might be different from your intended route because they had to leave their ID/License from different guard house.

Thank you,

it’s been a while since I’ve posted this question, and I’m not staying in Manila anymore, except while passing through. I’ve stayed in Olongapo for some time which was nice - quiet yet everything I need right there. 

Since the beginning, I wasn’t set 100% on the Philippines, I was also considering Vietnam, and right now it’s my favorite. There’s the language barrier, but I’ve started learning. I like everything in the Philippines, but I found the traffic situation just a bit too much of a hindrance. I won’t go into the details, because Vietnam is a mess too, but for me personally, it’s so much easier to get around.

I do agree with you about the traffic here in the Philippines. Getting around Metro Manila is really exhausting. I remember getting stuck in traffic from Ortigas going to Alabang for four hours and I even took Skyway that time. It gets worse during Christmas season starting September till December. 

Anyway, I'm happy that you're getting accustomed to Vietnam. I would like to visit there someday and try their cuisine.
