Ayala Avenue - the busy stretch

one of Makati's busiest street is the Ayala Avenue, home of the Philippine's tallest buildings and is considered as the Philippine's central business district. in this post i will feature this avenue as i walk along its long stretch of buildings.although many other modern business parks are now emerging in Metro Manila, i still love this avenue because it represents the old and the modern Makati City. it connects Edsa highway to the Metropolitan avenue.
popular buildings along the Ayala avenue includes PBCom tower (Philippine's tallest building), RCBC plaza tower, Philippine Stock Exchange, Makati Stock Exchange, GT International Tower, Ayala Life FGU, LKG Tower, Robinson's Summit, Enterprise Tower, Shangrila Hotel Makati, Manila Peninsula Hotel and Glorietta mall.

i also personally like this avenue because even though it is already modern you can still see the colorful Philippine jeepney passing through this street.

a busy avenue. a busy district. a busy life.

Note: all pictures were taken by the donG last March 6, 2008.

Nakakamiss ang Ayala pero mas laid back ang probinsiya - just the right atmosphere for me.

Great shots Dong.
