Makati, the financial hub of Philippines has a large number of different ethnic groups, mainstream banks, corporations, department stores as well as foreign embassies in the city. The Ayala museum is in the heart of Makati with four levels. Each of these four levels has their own individual displays. But you cannot take photos – it is not allowed inside. You have to be happy with a picture of the building’s exterior. You will simply be mesmerized by the collection of unique treasures with over 1000 gold objects that contain golden sashes, earrings, rings, anklets, and necklaces. The most wonderful thing, however, is that most of these items are crafted by hand. They look simply elegant.

Glorietta Mall is one of Makati’s premier shopping attractions. Merchandise on offer here encompasses a host of categories including apparel, many kinds of accessories, home items, appliances and more with well-known brands prominently available.

In order to make the most of your visit to the city, base yourself in a Manila hotel in Makati such as the Berjaya Makati Hotel. Rejuvenate your energies after a busy day of sightseeing or shopping- rest awhile at the appealing Ayala Triangle Gardens. This meticulously designed and maintained area of greenery will undoubtedly appeal to those desiring a respite from the hustle and bustle of the urban environment
