ArtBGC2017-24

Bonifacio Global City has always been a huge advocate of public art. The beauty of public art is in its accessibility. It’s not confined to a gallery or enclosed in a museum. People from all walks are given the chance to witness and appreciate art as part of their daily lives.

This year, through the help of Pinto Art Museum, BGC worked with individual artists and artist groups such as Solana Perez, BISKEG Art Collective, and John Paul Antido to paint their passion on various locations.

Here’s a quick tour of the new murals around BGC…

The SPIDER HOUSE Boracay Sunset Session! (A REVIEW)

Bora 2

Spider House Boracay used to be one of the island's best-kept secrets, but through word-of-mouth, the place has become very popular. It used to be just a family residence, but tourists kept stumbling upon the place, so the owners decided to open it to the public.

The resort is located at Diniwid Beach, a 30-minute walk from White Beach. It is a far cry from the busy Station 1 of Boracay; this place is meant for relaxation. Most vacationers come here to enjoy a different view of the Boracay sunset.

Here’s what we loved at Spider House…

HOBBIT TAVERN: Dining with the Happiest Hobbits in Boracay!

SNY03661

Hobbit Tavern is a specialty restaurant serving a wide array of international dishes at D'Mall in Boracay. Formerly known as The Hobbit House, it is now under the management of Freddie and Karen Elizalde, and Virgilio and Jeanette Sacdalan of Boracay Kelana Food Corp.

The Hobbit Tavern is most popular for their "Hobbit" waiters, based on the popular characters from J.R.R. Tolkien’s "Lord of the Rings." Most of these hobbits have been working at the tavern for years already and have a good grasp of attending to customers' requests, and are always ready to pose for a picture or two with the guests.

We tried their bestsellers and here's what we loved…
