Most Filipino travelers would go to nearby countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Macau (Visa free country) but very few would go to Indonesia. Most Filipinos would only know Bali and Jakarta but little did we know that Indonesia has so much to offer for all types of travelers.
In July 2016, I got invited by the Ministry of Tourism of Indonesia together with 50+ other South East Asian bloggers and influencers to travel around Indonesia for 12 days.

Posh Living in BGC: Ascott Hotel

Bonifacio Global City or The Fort (also known as) is one of the busiest and urban cities in Metro Manila. Housing Big Companies offices, posh restaurants, clubs, and luxury residences and hotels. Before the tall buildings stand here, before those luxury brands built here, Bonifacio Global is the home of Fort Bonifacio, where Philippine army also situated, their base camp and some underground tunnels. I remember coming here back in high school where we attended our CAT (military training) on their huge field and this is where I had the first hand with a real gun and rifle - where I learned to dismantle a rifle. Fast forward, now all the streets of The Fort are filled with buildings and posh establishments.

Ascott is best for expat staying in the Philippines for a month or more. They have all the amenities that a hotel has and an apartment can offer you. Comfy bed, sitting are with a nice sofa/couch, dining area, fully equipped kitchen, washing machine and a nice bathroom. Room prices from 8,000 PHP /  160USD to 21,000 PHP / 420 USD pe night. They also have a monthly option for longer stays. 

If you get bored in your hotel room, I suggest visiting the Venice Piazza Mall in Mckinley. For us Filipinos who has never been to Venice Italy we don't know if this is an exact replica of the Piazza but as per my Italian friends and colleagues, they thought I was in Venice (minus the building) when I posted this picture on my Instagram account - @ILOVEPAARS. 

You can dine in here and you can choose from their various posh restaurants in the area, though they have the local favorites like Chowking, Jollibee, and McDonalds. You can also shop clothes and shoes here (of course it's a mall after all, lol).
