Makati Photo Gallery

Makati is the traditional financial business district for Manila, home to over half a million people.

The district is centred around the Ayala Triangle Gardens, a green space where joggers outnumber tourists after work.

The old airport control tower has been rejuvenated into a fancy restaurant next to the park.

The district has a lack of rooftop restaurants or bars, so finding these sorts of views is quite challenging.

Another business district is emerging nearby in Bonaficio Global City.

With insufficient public transportation, workers resort to jeepneys braving traffic to get around.

There is also a sizeable residential community here, with many luxury-looking apartments.

On Saturdays, the Salcedo Market takes over a neighbourhood park and it seemed like a Western supermarket.
