Taguig – Metro Manila’s Boom Town
Once a sleepy town on the outskirts of Metro Manila, Taguig is now a
vibrant modern city that buzzes with activity, day and night. Its

Nowadays, Taguig’s population is getting younger and younger. Part of
it is due to the establishment of many outsourcing and creative firms
in the Bonifacio Global City business district; part of it is due to

Taguig is among the top cities in the country whenever education is
discussed; many top schools, such as the Japanese School, British
School, and International School Manila, have chosen to move their
campuses there. Adults who want to take their knowledge to their next
level can also enroll in the professional schools of the University of
the Philippines and De La Salle University.
Because of the presence of prestigious schools and many cultural and
scientific facilities such as the Mind Museum, Taguig is one of the
best places in which to raise a family.
