BGC has matured quite a bit since our first days here in 2009. Since we moved North of The Fort and Makati three years ago I don't spend nearly as much time there. When I do visit BGC I am reminded how very nice it is. No wonder expats flock and stay there, I don't blame them! The streets feel clean, the malls are new and the city has tried to keep some green spaces (wish there were more). BGC has really tried to keep up with the label of a 'global city' adding flare and desire to its township. Filipinos can taking anything and turn it into something beautiful. For example, massive scale art all over the city, also known as Art BGC. It's so rad!

Last month when I had college roommates visiting from The States we did a Wall Crawl though BGC thanks to Art BGC. They were so charmed with the large colorful murals sprinkled through the city. We didn't follow any guide or map nor see all the murals. We drove around and stopped and snapped along the way. We did this on a Sunday which I think is best for low traffic. You could also easily walk and see many of the installations. I highly recommend this as a family activity, date night or put it on your Manila visitors itinerary.
