    Use The All-Weather Elevated Pedestrian Walkways

    Elevated Pedestrian Walkway in Makati Avenue
    4 more images

    Makati City is a pedestrian-friendly city. You can go from the carpark building to the mall, from the shopping center to the Central Business District, and from one mall to another through the walkways. That way, you don't have to drive your car around; you can just leave your car in the carpark building and walk your way to whereever you'd like to go.

    Operating hours of the pedestrian walkway is from 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM.

    Shop Till You Drop

    Ayala Center is the shopping haven in the city developed by the Ayala Corporation. Ayala Center is composed of two areas namely, Glorietta and Greenbelt. The larger of the two shopping malls is Glorietta, which by now is a cluster of five malls. Glorietta is now composed of five malls, with four more shopping establishments along its periphery of Glorietta: SM Department Store Makati, the Landmark, Rustan's, and the newest, The Link.

    A few minutes drive from Ayala Center is Rockwell Center, a first-class shopping center with the Power Plant Mall frequented by the elite and expatriates.

    Rockwell Center

    I used to know Rockwell (well, Power Plant Mall to be exact) like the back of my hand. Why? It's so because our Pilot Branch of Crepes de France was launched there and we stayed there for three and a half years (including construction).

    As tenants, we might've had a bad experience, but as shoppers, you might have a different view. Well, I'm a shopper myself.

    Hmmm, the prices here are slightly expensive than the rest of the malls. Wait, who am I kidding? Their prices at the Power Plant Mall are way expensive than the other malls here, because it caters to the AB crowd and the AB crowd wannabees. ;D Yet, there's the Hawkers' Market and The Bargain Centers too.

    There's also a lot of Dining Areas to choose from and a grocery store with fresh produce (they do daily inventory of their stock). There are lots of boutiques, places where kids can play, a sports center, lots of high rise residential areas, offices, clinics, The Rockwell Club (exclusive), a place where you can hold receptions, art galleries, antique shops, wedding needs, appliance centers, etcetera.

    The Ateneo Law School is also here.

    For lovers, the atmosphere is also good for a stroll. =)

    Makati City if the Financial and the Upscale Shopping Capital of the Philippines and is also a very tourist friendly area. When in makati, I would recommend that you walk to different shopping and interesting destinations here which are pedestrian friendly and use the public transport or car when going to more distant areas.

    Malling --> Glorietta

    by nimato Updated Aug 30, 2007

    Glorietta for me is one of the best shopping destinations in the Philippines. Operated by the Ayalas, it is one of their five top caliber malls or the so called 'Ayala Malls' (the other four are Alabang Town Center, Greenbelt, Ayala Center Cebu and Market Market). Awarded 'Shopping Center of the Year' in 2002 and 2004 by the Philippine Retailers' Association and the DTI, Glorietta offers a one-stop shopping and dining experience with the widest choices of local and foreign brands. Another thing I like about this mall is their panoramic activity center-atrium where various mall activities are held - concerts, exhibits, fashion shows, etc. And if one finds Glorietta not enough, he/she doesn't have to go any farther. The mall is interconnected with the other malls in the area -- SM, Rustan's and Landmark.

    Hang out at Greenbelt Mall

    Greenbelt mall park by night

    The Greenbelt Mall in Makati is one of the best malls in the world. The best feature for me would be the park outdoors, with a small fountain, trees and greenery, comfortable benches. It's by Seattle's Best and Starbucks. Cool place to hang out, drink coffee, talk, watch people. :)
