Christmas is Almost Here

The Makati Central business district, from Ayala Triangle Park and along Ayala Avenue is resplendent with bright lights, parols, and decor, bringing cheer to onlookers. 

The park, located behind the Philippine Stock Exchange, is bedecked with twinkling lights and multi-colored lanterns that light up in tune of Christmas carols, attracting crowds and shoppers from  the nearby malls and offices. 

The malls ringing the avenue are also not to be outdone, lavishly decorating their windows with holiday-themed adornments.

How to get there: Ayala Avenue is probably the most recognizable street in the Philippines, being the location of the country's financial district. It can be reached through cabs, buses and the MRT. The light and sound show at the park runs every thirty minutes, from 6pm-9pm.
