Seize a New Kind of Urban Living: Best Places to Buy Condo

Sep 23, 2021

There is nothing more fulfilling than living in the city, close to opportunities, home to the most prominent business hubs. Through condo living, staying in such an environment has never been the same, giving you easy access to the closest tourist spots, best restaurants, prestigious shopping centers, and more - thanks to ready for occupancy condos and pre-selling condos, urban living is just so close to everyone.

In the Philippines, specifically in the Luzon islands, there are two places where people can go once a holiday is declared or for a family vacation, or even just when boredom strikes. Either way, with the number of people that go to these places, it is then known that these are some good locations to invest in a home.

These two cities are Baguio and Quezon, a perfect juxtaposition for their weather. The former is mostly for recreational, staycation, and family getaway, while the latter is more on the business side, working opportunities, and professional growth. These make both of the cities as best locations to buy a condo - for people who are looking for a place for relaxation and for those goal-oriented that seek professional experience.

What does Baguio Offer?

Most of the people in Luzon, perhaps, have already visited Baguio already. Being the summer capital, the city expects tourists to come from the most humid places to get a feel of the so-called Baguio breeze. But aside from the summer season, Baguio still houses a bulk of people, especially students. This mountain turned into a place with booming economic development is known to be the center of tertiary institutions and students coming from nearby provinces choose some of the city’s premier universities - Saint Louis University, University of Baguio, and University of the Cordilleras, to name the most well known.

For people that have yet to experience Baguio and still plan to go up, here’s a simple guide for you to explore this magnificent city.

A Place for Reflection

Baguio is not just a place meant for a refreshing, it’s weather also matches people who are into a personal reflection. Maybe for some, especially in their high school days, Baguio is the main go-to for school’s recollections since it has a peaceful scenery perfect for inner reconciliation with nature. It is also known that within the city, religious architecture rises together with the city’s skyline. The Our Lady of the Atonement Cathedral, commonly known as the Baguio Cathedral, is designed to be the highest overlooking architecture in the downtown area. Some recommend that it is designed to symbolize the city's importance to religious values. It is also perfect for visitors who are fans of religious architecture since the structure of the cathedral exemplifies a simple, elegant, and strong personality.

Another place to look forward to is the Pink Sisters Chapel, just a minute away from the famous cathedral. This chapel is not just a typical religious structure. It is believed that it is miraculous, saying that all personal wishes will come true. An indestructible legend for a couple of years, people still come up to Baguio, and Pink Sister has never been removed from their lists.

Going into the said places has never been easy with Vista Residences.

Exquisite cuisine

Whatever places we may go to, of course, eating is always included in the list. Food, aside from being an essential need for living, also completes one's travel. Thankfully, Baguio offers exquisite cuisine, both prestigious and for those who have a tight budget.

For those who are into fine dining, Lemon and Olives Restaurant is one of the most talked-about restaurants in the city. Located on the green side of the city, visitors would definitely enjoy both the food and the place itself. On the other hand, for people who are going up as groups, group of friends perhaps, samgyupsal (“samgyup” as the Gen Z calls) is the best option. Enjoy meals with the best people, cherish each moment while enjoying the peaceful breeze of Baguio, Romantic Baboy - Baguio is definitely the best to go to.

Nonetheless, whether some choose haute cuisine and other is geared on the affordable option, the best thing is the quality of the bond.
