Beauty in Makati city: Philippines

Continuation of  the highlights of our trip to the Philippines.

This in Makati area where we stayed in the Philippines in 2004.

The City of Makati (pronounced /məˈkɑːtɪ/ mə-kah-tee; Filipino: Makati), in the Philippines, is one of the 17 cities that make up Metro Manila, one of the most populous metropolitan areas in the world. Makati is the financial center of the Philippines and one of the major financial, commercial and economic hubs in Asia[citation needed]. As the host of various embassies, it is also an important center for international affairs.
Makati is noted for its highly cosmopolitan culture, also being a major cultural and entertainment hub in Metro Manila. Many expatriates live and work in the city. Makati is home to many first-class shopping malls, such as Ayala Center and Rockwell Center, top hotels like The Peninsula Manila, the Shangri-La Hotel Makati and the Intercontinental Hotel Manila, and the tallest buildings in the Philippines like PBCom Tower, G.T. International Tower.
