Everything you need is at the Ayala Center. Shops, restaurants and entertainment are here. And it's in a climate controlled setting which is important during the rainy season.

This is almost as a mega mall, made up of a complex of a dozen or so malls, ranging from the SM deptarment store, Landmark, Gloriettas and five Greenbelts. The stores range from the upmarket top branded good to the more basic essentials. The whole complex is busy during the weekend and these stores are open for 12 hours daily.... More

There is nothing like being in this area - Ayala Center - Greenbelt. It is like the Manhattan of Metro Manila, Philippines. Lot's of good restaurants and bars. Night life is enjoyable. You can go bar hopping or go dancing and still find a decent place for a midnight snack!
