One-of-a-Kind Experiences, Only in BGC

) Katrina Gadong |

Christmas season is here again! When it comes to unique activities, Bonifacio Global City (BGC) in Taguig never disappoints — people don't seem to run out of interesting things to do in this sought-after financial and lifestyle district. Whether you're making the most of your new hot address or just visiting the area for the weekend, let us try to count three ways for you to enjoy:

Take a gondola ride at the Venice Grand Canal Mall
Located at McKinley Hill Garden Villas, Cluster B, Upper McKinley Rd, Taguig

Designed after the romantic city of Italy with its canals and footbridges, the Venice Grand Canal Mall otherwise known as the Venice Piazza attracts any curious folk hoping to experience the charming European town in busy Metro Manila. While most mallgoers try the gondola ride with their special someone, others opt to stroll along the boardwalk especially at night when it glimmers with streetlights.

Bring your kids or kids-at-heart to KidZania
Located at Park Triangle North, 11th Avenue, Taguig

Let the youngsters' imagination go wild as they roleplay their way to their futures in this interactive mini-metropolis: an 8,000-square-meter space that holds 65 offices, restaurants, retail stores, and other establishments. Kids ages 4-17 learn how the real world works through play in this guided make-believe city as they take on any career of their liking such as reporters, models, pharmacists, or athletes for a day. They are taught the process of "adulting" from financial literacy to culture and language.

Go hunting for larger-than-life murals from the ArtBGC festivals
Located mainly between 24th to 32nd Streets and 2nd to 11th Avenues, Taguig

Witness world-class masterpieces created by artists from around the globe (for free!) just by walking down the bustling streets of BGC. These public murals, graffitis, and other works giving life to the already vibrant city stem from the yearly ArtBGC festivals organized by the Bonifacio Arts Foundation (BAFI), easily accessible to the public from all walks of life. You may explore the area on your own and discover the details on the backs of the buildings or hidden alleyways, or you may take the guided tour.
