This place is huge and would take days to see everything. If you are serious about shopping this is definitely a place you want to visit. Hundreds of shops of all kinds, and hundreds of restaurants all located in an air conditioned location. Very neat and clean, well maintained. It is easy to get lost the place is so big.

“Wonderful for shopping, eating and enjoyment in Makati”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

Ayala Center makes up a huge area in Makati City. It is easily accessible from MRT by getting off at the Ayala stop. This huge complex consists of 2 huge Shopping/restaurant/entertainment areas. The first is Glorietta, which consists of 5 buildings. SM Mall with super market. Greenbelt, also consists of 5 buildings. It is an insult to call these areas malls, because they do not resemble a traditional mall, rather than buildings scattered throughout landscaped gardens. There is an abundant amount of shopping, hundreds of restaurants, coffee shops and bakeries. Also in Greenbelt is a cinema, the Ayala Museum, and of course the Greenbelt outdoor chapel in the round, with masses taking place throughout the day. It truly is a place where you can spend days walking and enjoying the trees, flowers, water falls, and relaxing, or shopping or eating and drinking. Lots of coffee shops for that, and most have outside seating when weather is good. Ayala Center also houses some of the top hotels in Manila, Intercontinental, Peninsula, Dusit Thani, Mandarin Oriental, Shangri-la, and newly opened Holiday Inn Suites and the Fairmont Raffles. See my reviews of the restaurants in the restaurant listings.
