If you're reading this, I'm earning money. Thanks for helping to feed my family. Please see our disclosure for more information. Also, any advice provided is for informational purposes only. I'm not a CPA, lawyer, or doctor, although my parents wanted me to be all three. So, talk to a professional before acting on anything you read below.

Bacoor and Imus

When you see a sign that says "preselling house and lot in Cavite" and you are from Manila, you might think twice about considering it. You might be thinking that it is a far-off province, but it is quite the contrary. One of the main business districts in the National Capital Region, Makati, is very accessible to Cavitenos. And just the same, if you are coming from Manila and plan on visiting, you have options as a commuter.

There are many destinations you can go to when you are in Cavite. But it's best for you to know these two cities that will greet you first-Bacoor and Imus.

Transportation Options

Depending on where you are on EDSA, there are buses that will either take you to PITX or straight to Cavite. For the former, the PITX station has buses and jeepneys that will take you to the province. If you are coming from Makati, there is a P2P station near Greenbelt 1. Their scheduled trips bring passengers to either Imus or Noveleta. To reach Bacoor or Imus, it is best that you board the former as that bus will take you to Cavite via Aguinaldo Highway. The Noveleta bus will not pass by those two cities.

If you are driving, you can drive through EDSA and turn left when you reach Roxas Boulevard. Once here, you can go straight to CAVITEX. Get past the toll gate, and this will lead you to Cavite. Another route coming from EDSA is by Skyway. This will get you over from Makati to Cavite more quickly, but you also need to prepare money for toll fees here.

Bacoor

When you get past the CAVITEX toll gate, you will navigate a stretch of road which will lead you to Bacoor. This city is as developed as its neighbors from the capital. It has its fair share of malls, schools, and office buildings. Due to its proximity to the sea, there are also restaurants that serve seafood dishes as their specialties.

Bacoor is home to more than 600,000 residents. A lot of them are employed in nearby cities like Makati, Pasay, and Alabang. Commuting options consist mainly of buses and shuttle services if you are going to Makati or even up to Cubao. If you are having a hard time catching these rides, you can ride a bus that can take you to Pasay and then board another bus or ride the MRT to where you need to be on EDSA. There are also jeepneys that can take you to Baclaran, and you will see buses there that can take you northbound.

Imus

Past Bacoor you have Imus. This is a city of more than 400,000 residents. It has a large public market and home to many home-grown businesses. Go around its residential areas and you are bound to find something you will like. Here you will find various small restaurants, fast foods, fitness centers, and other establishments.

You have options similar to Bacoor when you are commuting to Manila. The District mall and Robinson's Place Imus have P2P stations if you are going to Makati.

These two cities will greet you warmly when you arrive. Do come back because you will always be welcomed by their friendly residents.
