March marks the official start of summer in the Philippines. That means that the sun will be shining extra bright and temperatures will be blazing hot in the following months. Filipinos would need to begin taking extra precautions for them not to be caught in a (sudden) heat wave.
Even those who live comfortably in a condo for sale in The Fort with their air conditioners cannot completely escape the warm season. Eventually, they would have to venture out to find another way to cool down.
Luckily, there are several ice cream places in and around Bonfacio Global City (BGC).
