Living in Caloocan City is perfect for those who don’t want to live in a fast-paced urban city life. Caloocan provides the perfect balance between the hustle and bustle of the city and the peace and quiet of a province. It is understandable, though, that not everyone is cut out for this life. It would take a lot of adjustments especially if it will be your first time living in the metro. But consider this, having a balanced lifestyle between work and relaxation would be good for your mental health - and Caloocan City may just be the place you’re looking for.

Key takeaways

Living in the city may be tough, but with the right balance between hustle and comfort, you’ll be able to live your dream life in the city. Here are some things to always keep in mind

  • Choose an accessible place to live. As much as Caloocan isn’t a highly urbanized city yet, it’s important to live in a place that’s near your necessities like groceries and transportation to make it easier for you.
  • Comfort above all. A condo may become your second (or even permanent) home in the metro. Never sacrifice your comfort inside and outside your condo unit when choosing your next home.
  • Find that balance. For the sake of your mental health, choose a condo unit that will allow you to easily escape the stress and anxiety brought by work and city life.
