About Makati, PhilippinesMakati City belongs to the seventeen urban centers that define Metro Manila, one of the most highly populated Metro regions anywhere. Having a population of over half a million people, Makati is rated as the 42nd most densely populated city in the world, with roughly 7,200 residents per square mile.
Makati is notable for its exceptionally multicultural lifestyle, and for it's reputation as a major entertainment center in the Manila area. Expatriates often choose to live in Makati, which has caused a large expatriate community to grow in the area with citizens from all over the world. Makati is well known also for its top notch shopping and department stores, found in the Greenbelt, Rockwell Center, Glorietta Mall, and Ayala Center. The city also also boasts the tallest building in the Philippines with the PBCom Tower.
Housing a variety of diverse national embassies, Makati is known as a significant center for intercontinental matters. But most of all, Makati stands out as the economic heart of the Philippines as well as one of several key financial, professional and commercial centers within all the Asian countries. And for this reason, and for the fact that it also houses the influential Makati Business Club and the Philippine Stock Exchange, Makati has rightfully earned the nickname and status of the Financial Capital of the Philippines.
The name "Makati" emerged via the Tagalog word kati, which stands for tide, referring to the tide of the Pasig River located to the North of Makati City.
Currently the city of Makati is among the most contemporary metropolitan areas within the country of the Philippines, and is a major international competitor in Asia.

Good Day to all viewers...
Its my first time to visit Makati City Philippines last week with my friend. I am expecting much from hospitable Filipinos prior to my travel but sad to say especially the \"taxis\" because they didn\'t even know the major streets and land marks in Makati like Rufino street, Chino street, Export Bank, Washington Sycip Park, Legaspi Street, and i think 5-6 taxis I asked help or ride from them but they refused to proceed in the said land marks coz they were not familiar of it. Most taxis never give a change, for exxample, the fare taxi reached to P60.00 and i gave P100 and refused to give the change of P40.00, why is that so? One thing also they request an extra tip aside the fare i had paid from P50 and above tip, why this was happened in Makati City? I\'m just an ordinary person coming from Mindanao. I spend jeepneys to ride going to my destination instead of taxis. I\'d been to Southern, Northern Province in Luzon and i never find any problem in transportations in those Porvinces. Makati is one of the most established place in Luzon . Public jeepneys are the frontliner to our foreign poeple, hope they will put honesty on their job. For 3 days I had stayed in Makati City, every day i encountered different negative sides to poeple and to transportation i met. Maybe that was my first and last visit in Makati City. And can\'t even recommend to poeple here in Mindanao to visit in Makati place if they want to.

I wonder what are the specific roles of the Ayalas in the development of Makati Central Business District? Do they really owned Makati CBD and lease it only for various groups/corporations? In particular, are the Ayalas in-charge of maintaining roads and Christmas decorations within the CBD or is it the local government unit?
I shall appreciate your response.
You may also reach me through firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks and regards.
