Makati City

The city that works hard plays hard too. Head to Jupiter St. for throwback restaurants, bars and karaoke joints. For a more modern night out, try Greenbelt.

The city is very walkable; you’ll find underground passages weaving through the central business district. You can also ride the e-jeepney, Makati’s eco-friendly public transportation. But be sure to watch where you’re going. Metro Manila is notorious for ever-changing street names, and Makati is no exception. One important example – Sen. Gil Puyat Ave., still commonly known as Buendia.
