“My dream neighborhood would have to be San Juan, La Union. I just love the laid-back vibe and food scene of the surf town.” —Dyan, 29, writer

“Would love to try the island life at Zambales or Bataan!” —Jen, 29, producer

“Camiguin because of its idyllic setting, accesible white beaches, lanzones. At ang babait at simple lang ng mga tao!” —Vienna, 29, lawyer

“Any place where I can have these four things—the ocean, the mountains, good internet, and great coffee! Some places making it to the list are Batangas, Ilocos, Palawan, Bacolod, and Bohol.” —Rocel, 30, communications consultant

“A clean and green environment filled with plants and trees that'll shade and keep us cool from the heat of the sun. Somewhere that feels isolated from the city's noise and pollution, but with friendly neighbors and a Starbucks nearby.”  —Pam, 23, video editor

“My dream neighborhood would be somewhere quiet and can allow me to be in tune with nature, preferably in the province but still located near enough to commercial establishments. Somewhere like Riviera Estates in Silang, Cavite since it’s located 10-15 minutes away from Tagaytay, has a provincial housing setting, a clubhouse with a golf course, swimming pool, sports area, and trekking areas.” —Elaura, 23, music teacher

“I’d love to live in a cozy cabin in Baguio and spend my days writing and reading, the lush scent of pine and the smell of brewing coffee always in the air.” —Marla, 32, writer and editor

“Ideally, the neighborhood should have a nice park, swimming pool, clubhouse, and excellent security. Preferably a subdivision in Makati City which is near a mall like San Miguel Village or Bel-Air 4.” —Dyana, 23, digital marketing consultant

“I would say I’ve always been a girl from the North so it feels like a betrayal to want to live in the Greenhills area. Minus the traffic, it’s central with lots of cool shops and restos and not a bad drive back to my folks place.” —Patty, 31, regional marketing manager

Where you’re in good company

“A neighborhood like my barangay in Parañaque. Despite not having the amenities that most neighborhoods have, it has a great and active community that help each other out. We're close to so many establishments and it never floods. So, good community plus good sewage system.” —Jem, 23, freelancer and startup founder
