San Fernando, Pampanga

San Fernando, the capital of Pampanga, is a 90-minute drive from Metro Manila. The city is seen as a potential real estate hotspot by property experts. It’s already home to several modern attractions, including SM City Pampanga, and connected to the National Capital Region via the NLEX.

Several infrastructure projects designed to connect the NCR and Pampanga are set to run through San Fernando. The city is close to several peaceful open spaces while family-friendly activities such as the SandBox in Porac, Fontana Water Park in Clark Freeport Zone and Dinosaur Island in Mabalacat are also nearby.

Antipolo, Rizal

Located at the foot of the Sierra Madre mountain range, above Metro Manila, Antipolo is a popular day trip spot thanks to its spectacular views and relaxing ambiance. However, it is becoming a highly desirable place to live as well.

Buying property here is much more affordable than in Metro Manila. Developers have launched a number of impressive residential communities around Antipolo where you can enjoy open spaces, beautiful surroundings and a desirable lifestyle.
