Pristine white sand beaches, endless retail destinations, breathtaking views. These are some of the reasons the Philippines has become a growing tourist destination for travelers in search of their next adventure, and why it is known by many as a tropical getaway destination. But as you explore its many corners, you begin to realize that there’s more to the surface, and why it’s truly a beautiful and nostalgic country that feels like home for many families.
Over the years, the Philippines proves time and time again why it’s worth coming home to like no place else, and why in many ways, it is definitely more fun.
Diverse culture and unparalleled passion
Family has always been an integral part of Filipino culture. This trait clearly shows among Filipinos abroad who suffer homesickness, or other countries whose custom is to live independently at an early age. Living in the Philippines means coming home to a warm and welcoming space filled with loved ones, and in a tight knit community. This also means enjoying home-cooked dinners together after a long and busy day, which definitely brings you closer together.
Warm hospitality and easy communication
Whether you’re visiting for the first time or coming home after 10 long years, Filipinos never fail to give the warmest of welcomes to visitors and balikbayans alike. Known for the authentic hospitality present in any household, nothing compares to the accommodating nature that comes in the most congenial forms.
Gastronomical food adventures
The list wouldn’t be complete without including the delicious comfort food the Filipino cuisine literally brings to the table. For the adventurous voyager, taste Cebu’s world class crispy lechon, fill your stomach with Pampanga’s sizzling sisig, or experience Bacolod’s delicious chicken inasal with chicken oil.
They say nothing beats home-cooked meals, and while this may ring true, city dwellers in the metropolis also have a wide array of restaurants of food hubs to choose from, with both a wide selection of diverse cuisines apart from the cherished Filipino comfort food.
Nature, flora, and fauna
Without a doubt, part of what makes residing in the Philippines so exciting is the experience of living as a local and a tourist at the same time. Regardless of how long you’ve lived in the country, there’s always a new beach to visit for a much needed vacation, a mountain to hike for the very first time, or even a fun activity to try out in the city with good company. In the Philippines, you can take a getaway to an exceptional resort and experience the wildlife over the weekend then hop on a short plane ride back home to Manila.
Welcoming communities tailored for a distinct lifestyle
Both the concrete jungle and more subdued parts of town offer many opportunities to create a home that suits your lifestyle. For the urbanite looking to settle down, it’s important to find a space that thrives in creating well-curated communities.
In the heart of retail establishments and topnotch institutions, Katipunan, Quezon City offers a dynamic environment for families to spend quality time while being at the heart of it all. With Rockwell’s first upscale high-rise development in the area, The Arton by Rockwell is the perfect home for families to build more special moments together with everything within reach.
Nestled atop a hill, The Arton allows residents to take in views of the Ortigas Skyline and the Sierra Madre mountain range. A sprawling 80 percent of the 1.9-ha property is dedicated to open spaces, manicured lawns and lush greenery, a trademark of the development.
For families searching for more harmonious living within the Metro, the laidback south gives a refreshing take on living away from the concrete jungle. Kick back and unwind in Rockwell Primaries’ 9.7 hectare community, East Bay Residences, and experience the resort-like ambience for a peaceful respite.
Spend quality moments in the Central Amenity, fully-equipped with a spacious Function Room, well-designed gym, and crystal pools for families to enjoy.
Nothing beats coming home to welcoming communities in or out of the Metro to spend time with the people who matter the most. Rockwell is on the move to bringing your family beyond ordinary experiences, only in the best locations.
