We really enjoyed this mall. There's Forever 21, H and M, Mango, Bench, Toys R Us and SM. there's a large supermarket too. We spend 2 days just browsing and window shopping. It's a great way to escape the mid afternoon heat and down pour.

Good for shopping and just relax and stroll and find people to chat with. There are excellent restaurants and places just to sit and drink and hear live or DJ music. The scenery is very beautiful and nice. Security is very good also. If you just want to walk around and take photos it is an excellent place also.

Walk around Ayala Center and you'll find a lot of dining options: local or international, meals or snacks. Malls are connected via walkways and passages, so you'll not run out of shopping choices. There's also a grassy park in the middle of Greenbelt where you can walk around as well as a chapel. This is a good place to go... More

I really felt the good condition of this place. The guards are very secured because they're carefully checking the baggage of all people. Thanks for making me feel secured.

I am a runner and this is one of the best place I could actually have my quick and long run. Over the last few years of my stay here in Makati, I would gladly say that this place is one of the safest place in the Philippines. Well guarded -- day amd night, near to MBC.
