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.

You can shop all day and enjoy casual or fine dining at night. Lively night life set in a tropical outdoor setting. Live bands and great outdoor eating and drinking in the... More

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

The Ayala Center is large and between the Greenbelt and the Glorietta Mall. The gardens in and around are magnificent, and you'll find plenty of upper end shops and restaurants. In the heart of the business district, so an ideal lunch time walkabout.

This mall is HUGE! It was a 25 minute walk from my hotel at City Garden Grand. It's very beautiful but not somewhere I would shop at because it is very Americanized. Overall, very clean, spacious and very very nice center.

Ayala center covers several acres of land area. It interconnects with Greenbelt and Glorietta malls, plus houses at least 4 major hotels. If you have business in Makati Central Business District, get a hotel there, or meet up with a client there. If you are a tourist, this is the safest and most fun place to be.

Big malls, large crowds surrounded by the financial district. Lot of supermarkets available which makes things easily accessible. Food joints are more than you can dream of.
