Many people have always thought that cities can be so toxic, and that one always needs to be in far-flung areas to enjoy summer thrills and holidays. What they do not realize is that there are places you can enjoy without leaving the city, or actually by going there, especially if we’re talking about Makati.

Being in the city could be so fun since you could hop around without the necessity of having a jet lag or consuming many days of your leave incessantly. With that, here are some places to visit in Makati along with your friends or loved ones:

  • Ayala Museum

In the age of gigantic malls, museums are a kind of refreshing ambiance within cities. In Makati, Ayala Museum boasts its collection of artistic piece like the paintings of Juan Luna and Fernando Amorsolo.

  • Filipinas Heritage Library

Formerly located inside the old Nielson Aiport Tower, and recently moving to the sixth floor of the Ayala Museum, this library has a wide range of book collections, some of which are archives dated back to the era of Spanish colonization in the Philippines.

  • Nuestra Señora de Gracia Church

This church, built by Augustinian friars, is a UNESCO World Heritage Church. Its architectural design usually gives a European impression to its visitors.

  • Ayala Center

This mall is truly a one-stop shopping center, convenient to city dwellers and visitors. It’s neither too small to cast boredom nor too big to be unnecessarily overwhelming. Video game centers and coffee shops are among the establishments found here.

Of course, there are more places you can enjoy that are stone’s throw away from your Makati serviced residence. Explore the city’s top restaurants and bars such as The Gilarmi Lounge, which offers Filipino-inspired snacks for lounging and intimate meetings. It is a tribute to the former Gilarmi Apartments from which now Discovery Primea is situated.

  • “Stayed at the Discovery Primea Makati for two nights in May in their Two Bedroom Primea Suite. This is truly an above and beyond hotel which after its soft launch I would be surprised doesn’t get fully booked straight away! Will now always make the Discovery Primea my hotel choice in Manila. Will be back next year!”

  • “I have stayed at many hotels in the City and have by far enjoyed this stay the most. From the moment I arrived I was greeted by warm and friendly staff who were very accommodating. The stand out for me is the apartment style facilities. A home away from home. Spacious rooms and modern appliances with a vast array of Chef inspired menu options. Will be back soon.”

    Stephen W., Tripadvisor

  • “A truly exceptional hotel. Very friendly and accomodating personnel, luscious food to die for, exceptional facilities with an exceptional view of BGC, Makati and Ortigas Skyline, and top notch accessibility. We’ll be back for sure.”

  • Great ambiance, service and food. From the lobby to our room, the experience was beyond words could describe. Kudos especially to housekeeping for the upkeep of the room. I would definitely recommend this hotel chain to my family and friends.
