Despite expansion of establishments all over Metro Manila, Makati still holds a certain kind of prestige. It is a diverse city of fast growing commercial establishments and is considered a first class highly urbanised city.
Makati is a business capital and often called as the Wall Street of the Philippines. This is where the first office buildings were built and most of the tallest skyscrapers are located. Such as PBCom Tower, Gramercy and G.T. International Tower.
Thus, a majority of diplomatic missions reside here as well, such as Argentina, Brunei, Canada, China, France, Germany Greece, Indonesia, Malaysia, New Zealand, Spain and Switzerland, to name a few. One of the most high-end and cosmopolitan areas in Metro Manila – Makati. Definitely for the urban at heart.
