Features » Living in Paranaque, A City of Accessibility

Long-time residents of Paranaque City will tell you that living in their city is being right smack in the center of everything.

Situated right alongside key financial, commercial and residential districts of Metro Manila, Paranaque has become an important center for trade and businesses in the country’s capital and a prime location for middle-class and upscale families.

One of the busiest markets in the country for its dry goods stores, Baclaran is located in Paranaque.

A collection of small fishing villages called, “Fisherman’s Wharves” is also situated alongside La Huerta, where you can see the famous Dampa, a seaside market with numerous restaurants serving fresh seafood.

The country’s international airport and the Baclaran Church, one of the most active parishes in the metro, and Duty Free, where you could buy imported goods, are also found in Paranaque.

Lancris Residences, standing at the serene heart of the residential zone of Paranaque City in Better Living Subdivision, offers a mere 30-minute drive to all the above-mentioned lifestyle landmarks.

Just recently, world-class lifestyle, shopping, and entertainment establishments have sprung up all around the city, adding even more value to Paranaque city living.

In June 2012, the SM Hypermarket in Lopez was opened (15 minutes from Lancris Residences). In March 2013, Solaire Resort and Casino, the first 6-star hotel in the city, was opened at Aseana City (30 minutes from Lancris Residences).

In November 2013, SM City BF Parañaque (15 minutes from Lancris Residences), the third SM mall in Parañaque, was launched.

Finally on February 2 this year, the City of Dreams Manila (30 minutes from Lancris Residences) was officially opened, marking the second 6-star casino hotel to be located in Aseana City.

These new developments are additional shopping landmarks to SM City Sucat and Bicutan, both 15 minutes away from Lancris Residences.

In keeping with the traditional community spirit, Paranaque City holds numerous festivals such as the Caracol, which revolves around boats. Parañaque is also known for the Sunduan, a festival held every November during the Araw ng Parañaque celebration.

The city also stages Holy Week rites and re-enactments of the Passion of Christ. The colorful Flores de Mayo, a festival commemorating the discovery of the cross by Queen Elena (mother of St. Constantine), is very much alive in Paranaque. And every February 13, the city celebrates the Sambalilo Hat Festival.

Paranaque City also keeps alive time-honored cultural traditions such as the komedya and bati-bati that continue to attract local and foreign tourists especially during summer.

These festivals and community events are guaranteed to entertain, educate and enrich the lifestyle experiences of Lancris Residences dwellers young and old alike.

For residents who religiously seek to nourish their soul, the city has no less than 87 Christian churches and 2 mosques for the faithful, so you do not need to spend time travelling to your places of worship.
