Today, most people view retirement as a new beginning, a new phase of life, an opportunity to reinvent one’s self. It’s a time to explore things in new heights.

“After getting what you want, you must enjoy what you got,” shares Mr. Reynaldo Lingat, OIC-General Manager of the Philippine Retirement Authority (PRA). Retirement is your hard-earned vacation, so enjoy every day of it and discover more about life and your environment.

In enjoying retirement years, there is no need to go far across the globe. Within the Philippines, much satisfaction can already be had. Whether you’re adventurous, laid-back, or a mixture of both, you have a spot to go in the country to fit the qualifications you seek.

Here is a list of top fascinating destinations in the country where you might want to build your retirement home. These are the places the PRA selected as retirement cluster areas in the Philippines, because of their proximity to international airports, hospitals, healthcare facilities, and commercial centers, plus the presence of tourist attractions and many more.

Manila
The vibrant city of Manila has become the retirement favorite of young retirees who prefer fast-paced and modern lifestyle, and active social life. According to Mr. Lingat, 40 percent of the foreign retirees are found in Manila. This is why more and more retirement condominiums and facilities are put up in this dynamic city.

In Manila, fun and entertainment is within reach. Enveloping the city are plenty shopping malls, flashy bars, thumping discos, and many other venues for social interaction and leisure activities. Name it and you can find it in this diverse city.

Tagaytay
A favorite retirement haven in the country because of its cool climate, Tagaytay offers abundant housing facilities and recreational sites for everyone’s enjoyment and pleasure. Its proximity to Metro Manila also makes it even more appealing to both foreign and Filipino retirees.

At this very pleasant city, one can take pleasure in having picnics, horseback riding, camping or simply sight-seeing. With the cold breeze and the splendor of the atmosphere, one can truly be at peace and harmony with nature at Tagaytay—one of the cities cited by four foreign trade chambers (European, American, Japan and Korean Chambers of Commerce) as one of the top five retirement havens in the Philippines.

Subic
If you wish to live close to nature, at the same time experience modern conveniences, you should consider settling in Subic. In Subic, technological progress and nature preservation are balanced together. This is where you can find the perfect mix of peace, convenience and fun.

This is because of its airlines offering great discount for domestic flights, allowing easy and affordable access to other parts of the country and Asia.
