Due to its proximity to the equator, the city of Makati in Philippines experiences a tropical tepid climate with frequent monsoon rains. With the Pasig River gurgling past to subdue the heat waves and make the atmosphere cooler it is no surprise that the city of Makati is popular the world over for more reasons than its commercial significance.
The capital of Philippines, Manila comprises sixteen districts of which Makati is one and it is a cosmopolitan financial hub with strong international ties. Thus, it is evident that there would be a host of restaurants to satiate all kinds of taste buds, cultural activities to promote the flavour of Philippines and brand names that are loved all over the world at fashion retailers. With historical records indicating that civilizations existed even before the 16th century, the museums of Makati are well worth a visit as well.
The Yuchengco Museum, though small in size has a spectacular collection of paintings that exemplify the history of Philippines and artefacts that are held sacred by the locals. The Ayala Museum has a vast collection of gold and jewellery inherited from the times the Spaniards were ruling and the different political eras Philippines was subject to for a period of about 400 years. An illustration and quick write up about each political leader displayed in a hallway is particularly important for students of history.
Just around the corner from this museum is the Greenbelt Shopping Mall where you can accumulate your own personal Imelda Marcos like wardrobe of shoes, Prada bags, Emporio Armani perfume and watches and Louis Vuitton sunglasses to boost your stylish appearance. The Power Plant Mall and Glorietta are two other high end options for shopping where you will find both internationally and locally acclaimed branded wear.
Mix work with pleasure while you stay at Manila apartments, which will undoubtedly help you rejuvenate from a difficult day of business. The serviced accommodation Manila offers the precise combination of privacy, peace and fully fledged service that you would anticipate. Somerset Olympia Makati is among these illustrious abodes that are well suited for business and leisure travellers alike and offers a truly memorable stay in the city.
