Ratchapsin, a city of just over 300,000 people in Central Visayas, is home to a sprawling expanse of green-shaded palm trees and palm-draped roofs dotted with palm trees that tower over the town of Ravanapraso.

It’s a sprawling town, with its own airport, a police station, a railway station and the airport.

Ratchaptins homes are also home to the most apartments per square kilometre of land in the country.

It is not just the city that is a hotbed of housing in Central Asia, as you will find in the pictures of Raptins buildings above.

There are also more than 400 million apartments and condos built in the region in 2017.
