Best places to shop in Makati -Find out which of the city's malls make for a unique shopping experience

The shopping malls are one of Makati's allures. There are many of these large complexes scattered within the city. Here are some of the world-class shopping experiences the city has on offer;


Greenbelt Mall

Whether you want to indulge in a high-end shopping spree or find good quality clothes for a reasonable price, Greenbelt is the place to go in Makati. The restaurants and food outlets serve a variety of scrumptious dishes. You can go and have a drink at the park after tiring yourself with the shopping.


Power Plant Mall

This is one of the smaller malls in the city. However, it is also one of the most aesthetically pleasing places in all of Makati. Premium brands dominate all floors of the mall. The movie theatre is also a favourite among locals and foreigners here. On Sundays, many locals go to the Power Plant Mall for mass.



While international premium fashion brands take centre stage here, you can find good local brands as well. What's unique about Glorietta is that it is also connected to some of the city's other malls. It is also connected to some of the city's hotels and serviced apartments. Makati Central's largest shopping mall is a serious contender for the 'city's best mall' title.


Salcedo Saturday Market

If you want to take a break from frequenting the mall, here's a fun way to avoid it. The Salcedo Saturday Market is a good place for the expatriate community of Makati to meet the locals. While the prices are steep, you can find some rare food and beverages here. It is there every Saturday next to the Jaime Velasquez Park.


Century City Mall

This is one of the laid-back malls in Makati. It is not as accessible to people living outside the city. The mall houses one of the best theatres in the city. It is described as quaint, small and secluded by its patrons. It's not overcrowded by too many restaurants. It is safe to say that this mall has created its own niche.


SM Makati

This mall stays true to its tagline "We've got it all". There is nothing you can't find at SM Makati. It is also connected to the city's other malls like Glorietta and Greenbelt. The entrances and exits are well placed so that they are right at the bus stops in and out of the city. It is also easily accessible by the city's stays such as Somerset Olympia Makati.


Balikbayan Handicrafts

If you are looking for a souvenir in Makati, this is one of the most recommended places to visit. The arts and crafts here are designed and created by local artists. The quality here is unmatched by their competitors residing in the city's malls. The staff are also friendly and will help you find the perfect souvenir/gift.


Ayala Museum Artist Space

If you are an art buff, this small space next to the Ayala Museum can provide for the best shopping experience. On sale are paintings/ sculptures done by local artists. While the selection is not extensive, each piece of art is unique. The exhibits change every few weeks. So, you can find something new to buy if you go there once a month.
