Greenbelt Mall

A long-time favourite, the Greenbelt Mall is a huge complex that features five buildings that are interconnected; those staying at apartments of nearby properties like Somerset Central Salcedo Makati can spend much time exploring these sites that offer high-end brands, fashion, electronics, footwear, home décor, cosmetics, books and more; there are charming outdoor spaces for relaxing and dining too.

Glorietta Mall

For those finding a centrally located apartment for rent, Makati shopping sprees at the Glorietta Mall can include perusing stores in its five buildings. Staffers will help you navigate the vast layout and, on your escapades, you will come across shops with electronics, home furnishings, local fashion and accessories to name a few. A highlight here is the Uniqlo clothing flagship store while dining options abound too.

Power Plant Mall

Located at the Rockwell Centre, the Power Plant Mall did indeed begin life as a thermal power plant! It has since then been transformed into a trendy retail haven offering upscale shopping with brands like Michael Kors, Lacoste and Mango. Stunningly decorated during Christmas, it offers plenty of diverse dining options from around the world and has cinemas too when you need some entertainment.

Weekend Markets

To soak up some local culture while shopping, you can head to two lively markets in Makati held on the weekends. The Salcedo Saturday Market offers stalls selling everything from lovely trinkets, kitchenware and yummy food to fresh veggies and fruits. At the Legazpi Sunday Market, more foodie delights await including local street food and international cuisine along with handicrafts, plants and organic produce.
