“Level up shopping and dining and malling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I always drop by here since this is also one of my ways going or leaving the office. You will enjoy hanging out here if you have the budget, haha. Ir your the branded type of person, then definitely this is your thing, same goes with the restaurants and eatery here. The night life is so alive here, so you might want to try going here at night. I enjoyed seeing different people here from across the globe and hanging out with friends and eating to some properties we have never eaten before.

“Take your pick”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013 via mobile

As shopping centers go, Ayala Center is definitely not run of the mill. One thing, it's not just a big block of glass and cement we're used to seeing. For the directionally-challenged, I think we actually need a map to navigate each building! Not that it's a bad thing.. Albeit, it encourages me to explore, and make each visit seem like a different adventure.

Shops range from the chain to the posh -- take your pick depending on your budget or interest (or addiction? LOL). There's also a chapel, gardens, a museum and innumerable eateries to satisfy every need. Personally, I try to avoid outside seating at these restos because I don't relish second hand smoke.

I mainly come here for the expos and sales. When there's one, you almost always know, because traffic around Ayala seems to grind to a standstill. I don't know what's the worse torture... Finding parking and later languishing in traffic, or trying to find a cab and later languishing in traffic! LOL But for those who don't mind having their packages opened, there's the MRT, just a hop, skip and a jump away from Glorietta.
