“Ayala Museum, located at the heart of the Makati Central Business District, Philippines, is a breathing space amidst the hustle and bustle of Metropolitan Manila. Whenever visiting the country, the museum is surely one of the best places to lose yourself in amazing contemporary art and uplift your spirit through the Philippines’ inspiring history.”

“A good place to go to learn a piece about Philippine culture and explore interesting exhibits.

“Great handicraft shop in Makati district of Manila. Staff were great, very helpful, if not a little 'hovering.' Three floors of items to select from, all the way from massive furniture to small bangles and t-shirts. Prices were good, although we had nothing to compare them to, so make your own judgement about value.”
