5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

I used to shop aound this area in Makati. This huge mall is safe , air-con, clean ( no neen to worry about washroom), you can enjoy whole day there.
My most favorite shop area gloriatta is now under construction, hope to be completed by my next visit. if its sale season, shop prised get down around half prices, so you will find much reasonable clothes, shoes, etc...

“Getting little old, but still has something to offer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

The Area is full of shopping centers, Ayala, glorietta, SM, Greenbelt etc. all within walking distance (except when raining) Ayala seem older than the others, but still has lots to offer. If you want coffee lots to choose, restaurants again lots to choose, supermarket and department style stores, its there, band name shops, again its there. If your looking for something, and dont know were to go, head here, if you cant find it, look in the other shopping centers, bound to find something to offer. Taxi's in easy, but leaving, may need to queue, or walk to main road. There is alway Jeepney's.

“Glorietta Mall Conveniently close”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

If you are not a real shopoholic like me, this mall is fine. 2-3 hours is enough. The Mandarin Oriental has free shuttle service to here and the smaller Rockwell. Real shoppers should go to the SM Mall - the one in Manila City, and the one on EDSA. I heard neither can be done in a day.

“Not what it used to be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

The oldest shopping area in Makati, its crowed and run down although it undergoing renovation. Greenbelt and the Power Plant are much better.
