Good Quality

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.

From EDSA to Paseo de Roxas, from Ayala Avenue to Pasay (Arnaiz) Road, the 125-acre Ayala Center is like a vibrant city unto itself. Encompassing numerous iconic shopping malls, department stores, restaurants, nightclubs, bars, coffee shops, boutiques, prestigious hotels, parks, a museum, MRT station, and so on, the list is simply too long, and appeals to all ages and demographics....

A great place to shop with thousands of shops around and a few malls to cater for your shopping need. Just make sure you know where you are as the mall intersect with different buildings and you can end up at a different part of the mall.

The place is great so far so clean. Very accessible for jeepney and taxi. And most of the security guard are friendly and easy to communicate with them.

I feel like I'm a local here already and I can live here! I live in the town next to its town but I'm always here. It has everything one needs- whether you are a local or a visiting traveler. Virtually anything that a human being needs no matter what kind of culture or taste, it's here.

One of the reasons I prefer to stay in Makati besides the safety factor is this lovely mall. Containing SM, Landmark, Glorietta, and Greenbelt malls within it provides one with so many dining shopping and entertainment options. The mall contains a museum as well as the MRT rail service which during non peak periods is a great way to beat... More

From Ayala station on the MRT 3 elevated rail line that carries passengers making 500,000 trips a day (!), it is an easy walk though airconditioned shops (SM) and shopping centres (Glorietta and Landmark, the latter a famous standalone department store) to wonderful Greenbelt with its five malls and numerous restaurants. The whole place is well designed. Well done Ayala... More
