Many Filipinos today have given up on living in Manila because of how stressful it can be. Well, stress is always going to be a partner of a city. Busy streets, sleepless noises, narrow places, and smoke are always present in the heart of Manila. Somehow, despite all the negativities Filipinos brand on Manila, condos in Manila have increased in number over the years. Today, even if Manila has become worse in terms of environmental aspects, the number of people who want to live there are still increasing. Why do you think this is happening?

Filipinos still want to live in Manila because of two important reasons. The first one is obvious.
