Sandwiched between Mandaluyong and Pasig is a city teeming with real estate options, plus cultural and lifestyle destinations. While the city of San Juan is small, together with the adjacent New Manila area, this hot spot is growing more popular than ever because of the establishments surrounding the vicinity. If you're interested in exploring the magic of San Juan, here's a list of places to visit this weekend:
