Tourist Attraction in Makati

World-Class Shopping Centers
Touring Makati, or any place for that matter, always includes shopping sprees. This city has numerous super classy shopping centers where foreign and local items are available—even souvenirs supposedly available only in rural localities—like printed shirts, native accessories, and other handcrafted souvenir items. Just visit the Filipiniana sections of shopping centers like Glorietta at the Ayala Center, SM Makati also at the Ayala Center, Power Plant Mall at the Rockwell Center, Louis Vuitton at Greenbelt 4, Nike Rufino at the Rufino Pacific Tower at the corner of Rufino Street and Ayala Avenue, Bonifacio High Street in Fort Bonifacio Global City, and Land Mark on Makati Avenue, among many others - there there is no excuse not to enjoy the famous Makati Malls.

Historical Sites
Makati also features historic sites even many locals are still unaware of. Touring Makati should include the Guadalupe Ruins, for instance, located along Bernardino Street in Guadalupe Viejo. Here are remains of the Nuestra Senora de Gracia Church constructed in 1629 in classical Doric Architecture. In Fort Bonifacio, the American Cemetery and Memorial keeps war records and wall artworks depicting scenes from World War II. This is a favorite tourist spot among war veterans visiting or touring Makati. Also in Fort Bonifacio is the “Libingan ng mga Bayani” or Memorial for Heroes.

Thrift Shops
Makati also has superb thrift shops where good items are sold. For tourists thinking of buying real Makati stuff like printed shirts but which are not so expensive, the flea market or thrift shops on Hizon Street in Bangkal, Makati, just before the Malibay area, are perfect. After a shopping spree here tourists might as well try the mouth-watering pastas and pizzas at Fat Micahel’s near the thrift shops.

Southern Philippine Cuisine

In Mindanao, the southern part of Palawan island, Sulu and Tawi-Tawi, dishes are richly flavored with the spices common to Southeast Asia: turmeric, coriander, lemon grass, cumin, and chillies — ingredients not commonly used in the rest of Filipino cooking. Being free from Hispanicization, the cuisine of the indigenous Moro and Lumad peoples of Mindanao and the Sulu archipelago has much in common with the rich and spicy Malay cuisines of Malaysia and Brunei, as well as Indonesian and Thai cuisines.
