Now, it has become one of the most important districts in the Philippines with many significant areas such as world-class hospitals, lively nightspots, and exclusive residential subdivisions. It is also known as the “Tiger City” because of the many businesses that operate there. The city is one of the most important financial areas in the Philippines.

Its many offices, convention centers, and even an internationally renowned golf course make it a haven for businesspeople. Its strategic location also makes the district highly accessible via major thoroughfares and two metro rail stations.
