Pasay is also home to several residential villages, and because of this, many shopping malls, theaters, hotels and other tourist-oriented facilities can also be found within or in proximity to the city.

Among them include the Singapore School Manila, Manila Tytana College, and the San Juan de Dios Educational Foundation College. As the location of NAIA and the Villamor Air Base, the headquarters of the Philippine Air Force, the city is also the location of aviation schools with the Philippine State College of Aeronautics and PATTS College of Aeronautics being the two largest.
