A spot of greenery sitting right in the middle of the busiest area in Makati seems totally oblivious to the fast paced world that belongs to its surroundings. This rather spacious patch of greenery remains central and yet not quite taking part in the hum drum of its surroundings and remains demurely and complacently, appearing all the more enticing to the busy men and women who find the lush greenery refreshing in contrast to their prim office interiors.
The Ayala Triangle Gardens doesn’t appear to be congested although it is cornered by three busy streets- the Ayla avenue, Makati avenue and Paseo de Roxas and their cluster of looming buildings. However, its 20,000 sq.metres have been made use to its greatest advantage, with over 100 trees that form a diverse group from rain trees to golden palms that differ in their height and their origins possibly but uniting in their charm to attract the nearby street walkers often enough.
While the two roads, Ayla avenue and Paseo de Roxas have formerly enjoyed the reputation of being the runway of the former Neilson field, the airport of Metro manila, at present the area is claimed to be the heart of Makati’s business district. Although as a somewhat delayed reaction, in the late 2010, a throng of upscale and trendy restaurants have made their appearance here, for good, filling the void for some classy refreshment in the Ayla triangle.
Today, this strip of well manicured lawns and trees is ideal for jogging, or meeting friends or simply people watching. It is even a good place to walk your dog, spend some time alone or better still surf the net using the wifi facility that is available here. As a sub-district belonging to Makati’s central business district, the Ayala Triangle has attracted a lot of attention from the city dwellers and visitors. During special times, like the Christmas holidays, it is a must visit place, if only to see the garden lit up like a glitter paper shimmering against the night’s darkness.
From Ayla gardens, one doesn’t have to go far to find some excellent serviced accommodation Manila that fits into the taste and requirements of both business travelers and pleasure hunters. Somerset Olympia Makati offers a range of contemporary services from Broadband internet access to a fitness centre and swimming pool to a fully equipped kitchen and so much more to meet so many of everyday requirements. These Manila apartments are indeed a superb way to enjoy the city while visiting for a business purpose or taking a much needed vacation.
