5 Instagram-worthy Places to Visit in Makati – Splash Your IG Feed with Colour!

Makati is the bustling financial hub of the Philippines. It is one of the urban centres that make up Metro Manila in the country. It's also known for its range of luxury shopping malls and great opportunities for entertainment. Here are some Instagram-worthy spots to visit here!


Ayala Museum

Located just a 5-minute drive away from serviced apartments like Ascott Makati, Ayala Museum can be found on the corner of Makati Avenue and De La Rosa Street. The museum never fails to grab the attention of the onlookers with its modern and sophisticated façade. This six-storey building boasts archaeological and ethnographic exhibits that are based on Filipino art, history, and culture. From fixed displays that showcase gold relics to "The Diorama Experience", the place famously has a stunning collection of arts. The museum also has a number of contemporary pieces of art as well. If you're a history buff or even an art enthusiast, this place is a must-visit even when you're spending your holiday at a serviced residence in Makati.


Little Tokyo

Have you got a craving for some ramen or any of the Japanese delicacies that are sure to tantalise your taste buds? Then, why not head over to Little Tokyo! Stroll past its brown arch and you'll actually feel like you're in Japan – and how can you not, when the place is teeming with zen-themed Japanese structures, obscure signboards, and a range of restaurants managed and owned by Japanese restaurateurs! Step into one of those elegantly crafted restaurants with traditional façades and you're sure to be served with a carefully and beautifully presented plate of food. Don't forget to take a picture!


Salcedo Saturday Market

Surely, your Instagram feed isn't complete without a cool collection of food – and this is especially true if you're a foodie! Salcedo Saturday Market is the ideal place to snap some delectable portraits of mouthwatering dishes. This market is not only perfect for food photography, but the surrounding greenery makes it ideal for nature photography as well. This market is open from 7 am to 2 pm every Saturday at Jaime C. Velasquez Park (also known as Salcedo Park).


Ayala Triangle Garden

Ayala Triangle Garden is the place to be if you'd love to take a look at contemporary art surrounded by lush green foliage. This is a park that allures families looking for some downtime, joggers, and just about anyone who'd want to catch a breather – away from the concrete gardens of Makati. Possibly the best time to snap that Instagram-worthy picture is during Christmas; one may notice that the park really come to life with a vibrant display of colourful light shows – this can definitely add that much-needed splash of colour for your Instagram feed.


Nuestra Señora de Gracia Church

Many people get quite surprised to come across this age-old church amid a bustling and modern city such as Makati. Also known as Guadalupe Church, this is also chosen by couples who are looking for a venue for their wedding. It is an ancient baroque style Roman Catholic church that holds splendid opportunities to discover more about the rich heritage of Makati.
