Ahh yes Makati, my moms family lives in the burbs of Manila, unfotunantly last time I visted, I was a toddler so I do not rememeber much. Except buying some new shoes downtown with my grandparents :haha:

Its true though, surprisingly, Makati has a very large and significant skyline, yet it is hardly ever mentioned.




The PBcom Tower stands as the tallest in the country.


Closeup of PBcom.


The George Tye International Tower's fins lighting up the skyline. 2nd tallest in the city.


Makati and the other surrounding metro cities.


One of the most striking features is how fast the city's skyline transitions from rich to poor, the tall glass skyscrapers looming over the rolling slums.


Best for last:


We need more pics! :YES:

Just came back from the P.I., and as promised, I have a few more Makati pics to show. It was raining that day, so rather than walking, I rode in my cousin's van as he drove around the city. I was impressed with the continued pace of development, including new condos going up in the Greenbelt area and the new Raffles hotel under construction near Glorietta.

There are several more Makati pics that I will be posting in the International Cities photo section; keep an eye out for these soon.

Makati looks fabulous! I left the Phils. 32 years ago, and I never had the chance to come back for a visit. I think I will make plans now!

Is Makati to Manila as Manhattan is to New York City?

Makati became an independent city in 1995, Manila is also an independent city, both are in Metro Manila which consists of 11 million people.

Great pics. I like the clouds in one of the pics of Makati above. Looked fluppy like cotton candy. :D
