So, when the city of Makati is mentioned what comes into mind is nothing but the business suits, fancy cars arriving at tall buildings and so on. Sounds very urban and business-oriented doesn’t it? Well, here’s news for you! Makati is much more than a boring old business hub. Here are a few places that you might find interesting.
This is certainly a place that emanates much grandeur! Inside are fantastic displays, some of the ancestor’s gold and so on. The icing on the cake for art lovers would be the many paintings that are on display here. The Ayala Museum is an 8-minute walk away from Somerset Olympia Makati.
Want to get that Japanese vibe while in Makati? Head over to Little Tokyo and walk through streets with Japanese signboards and Japanese structures that remain true to the idea of zen. There are plenty of restaurants in the area owned by the Japanese themselves, they serve up a few delicious dishes like Ramen and Sushi!
Ayala Triangle Gardens
If you are feeling like a picnic on a nice sunny day, the best place for your small outing with family and friends. It is also yet another place to appreciate art among nature in Makati. The park is popular with joggers and those who need a break from the city. The park is located close to many a hotel apartment in Manila.
The Red Light District
For those party animals out there, this place has its share of night clubs in Makati! P.Burgos is also famous for the restaurant Filling Station Bar Café which is themed to mirror the setting of the 1950s. Certainly an interesting place with great food too!
