Everything You Need to Know About Pasig City, aka the “Green City” | Suntrust Properties Inc.

Pasig City has been making a name for itself in the past few years. Once the capital of Rizal, it’s a burgeoning city located right in the heart of Metro Manila and conveniently surrounded by the busiest areas in the region. It’s no surprise that it’s one of the hottest spots for leisure and residence.

Here’s what you need to know before exploring (and possibly relocating in) the Green City!


pasig accessibility

One key advantage to living in Pasig City is its accessibility. You can go and see the rest of Metro Manila from here, especially key districts like Makati, Mandaluyong, Taguig, and Quezon City. Because of this, it’s an ideal living location for professionals who need to get to their offices in these areas easily.

Aside from traveling to and from the city, getting around has also been made simple and convenient. Transportation within the city is a priority of the local government with the designated Pasig Transport Office, and a push for the use of bicycles by creating bike lanes and making the city more bike-friendly.



Pasig is known as the Green City for a reason. The local government unit is serious in its sustainability efforts, including the push for bicycles as a mode of transportation. One of their environment-focused projects is the rehabilitation of the Pasig River. The city has also partnered with Unilever for “Walastik na Pasig,” a plastic collection project promoting proper management and reduction of plastic waste.

Physical Activities


Pasig is home to active people and promotes a healthy lifestyle with the variety of physical activities you can do in the city. Aside from it being a bike-friendly city, you can find the indoor cycling studio Cyclehouse MNL here. It also has the best spots for those who like to go running. Emerald Street and Capitol Commons are popular for this activity.

Work-Life Balance


The city is an ideal residence for young professionals who are looking for the perfect work-life balance. Aside from the hustle and bustle in the business district, Pasig also offers a vibrant nightlife and tons of fun leisure activities like shopping and food trips.

Foodie Haven


A popular attraction in Pasig City is Kapitolyo, known for its hole-in-the-wall restaurants for every budget. Explore along East Drive to find affordable restaurants; check out West Drive if you’re looking for a place to celebrate a special occasion with your loved one.

Go to Haru Sushi Bar & Restaurant for an authentic Japanese restaurant experience complete with servers dressed as geishas. If you’re craving for some European cuisine, Poco Deli is one of those Kapitolyo landmarks you need to try at least once.

It’s Everything You Need All in One Place


From being able to go into work comfortably to doing fun activities to unwind, Pasig City offers everything you could possibly need and want from urban living.
