I would say this feels like the heart of the city with so many big hotels (Fairmont, Intercontinental, Shangri-la) around and malls that seems to be all around you. Will be wise to book a hotel here to take your time to get lost in the malls.

Huge mall complex with all you can imagine to pick from stores to restaurants of all kind. However, and not sure if this is a big problem this city faces in general, but all the time you can feel that awful smell like bad sewerage system.

Ayala Center have everything which the big urban developer would like to have within his premises. And here everything is done in the first world way. Yes, Filipinos can do it actually. Wonder why they can't do it in more public places like MRT stations.

What sets Ayala Malls from the others is the fact that they keep their malls "green." Its nice to walk around these kind of mall where you don't see just concrete all around...

Ayala Center represents the best in Makati. It is beautifully nestled in the middle of big hotels and huge corporate buildings. It houses all sorts of restaurants, theaters, big malls, a museum,and is attached to another huge mall Greenbelt! If you are a tourist and you opt to stay in Makati , this is a perfect place for you!
