Pasay is our kind of place!
With a booming economy and buzz generated by a hip new wave of restaurants, nightlife and galleries, Pasay has vitality and confidence. It’s no surprise that it’s one of Southeast Asia’s best capital cities for sightseeing and culture.
One of over 7,000 islands in the Philippines, Pasay's stunning waterfront, ancient Chinatown, wildlife, culture and nightlife are all part of its attraction. Pasay is always bustling with life. It’s a non-stop city and we can’t get enough of it!
Life + Work in Pasay
Our Manila office is in the heart of the Pasay City.
It’s an environmentally-conscious building with state of the art facilities, and is within walking distance of hotels, restaurants and more. There’s a kitchen in the office which is free to use, and just a few steps away the building also has its own restaurant. It’s also close to a shopping mall, salon, parks, and a grocery store for all those daily needs.
Pasay is one of the world’s oldest cities, with a harbour that is regarded as the finest in Asia. The climate is hot and humid, and the city has a high population with a rich diversity of cultures, languages and food that’s a feast for the senses. There’s a rich tradition of sports in the city, there’s truly never a dull moment here, and we love being part of it!
Karaoke is popular in the Philippines, but be sure not to make fun of those who’s talent doesn’t match their enthusiasm!
Losing your temper is frowned upon, so try to keep calm and if you do feel some frustration bubbling up, keep it inside.
Transport can be hectic, so just smile and let it all happen, you’ll get there.
And don’t be surprised to hear hissing when you are in a restaurant – it’s a common way of signalling for service and it’s not considered to be rude.
Importantly, if someone is pointing their lips out in a pout, it’s a Filipino way of pointing to an object or person rather than pointing with a finger. So don’t steal a kiss!
Pasay is bursting at the seams with things to do and see.
Theatre and musicals are very popular and tickets are reasonably priced. There’s any number of bars and pubs, and for live music there’s bars such as SaGuijo, Hobbit House and the Tago Jazz Café.
Golf is a popular pastime, with several courses including the Manila Golf Club itself, which was established in 1901. With water parks, green spaces such as Rizal Park and the Enchanted Kingdom theme park, there’s plenty for families to enjoy too.
With a booming economy and buzz generated by a hip new wave of restaurants, nightlife and galleries, Manila has renewed vitality and self-confidence and is now one of Southeast Asia’s best capital cities for sightseeing and culture.
