Ortigas Center: A bustling CBD in the heart of Metro Manila

MANILA, Philippines – These days, to live in an area where everything is accessible and available is a priceless gift. That is what you get in Ortigas Center.

Just imagine: you can leave the office at 5 pm and be home in time to prepare and enjoy dinner by 6 pm. Forgot an important ingredient? Just step out of your house or condo and you're only 10 minutes away from the mall supermarket.

Ortigas Center is a convenient, well-connected area made up of 3 cities (Mandaluyong, Pasig, and Quezon City), with 3 other major ones (San Juan, Makati, and Taguig) only 30 minutes away. You can visit a friend on the other side of Quezon City, go on a business meeting in Makati, shop at Greenhills, or enjoy a night out in Bonifacio Global City, all with equal ease.

With long transit times and traffic now a perennial problem in Metro Manila, those who frequent or are from Ortigas Center can take comfort in the fact that proximity is on their side.
