Makati is is bounded on the north by the Pasig River, on the northeast by Pasig City, on the southeast by the municipalities of Pateros and Taguig, on the northwest by the capital City of Manila and on the southwest by Pasay City.
In the pre-Spanish era, Makati was ruled by Lakan Tagkan, a native chieftain, and his wife Bouan. It was Don Miguel de Legaspi, the founder of Manila and first Governor-General of the Philippines, who first spotted the area.
Between the years 1578 to 1670, Makati was a district of Santa Ana de Sapa under the jurisdiction of a Franciscan priest named Pedro de Alfaro. Makati was then known as San Pedro de Makati in honour of its patron saint.
In 1914, Philippine Legislature Act. No. 2390 changed the name San Pedro de Makati to Makati, which remained to date as its official name.
At present Makati is one of the most modern cities in the country. It is the country’s financial centre and is even known as the “Wall Street of the Philippines.

Overall Guide : Very good. Nice place to live in and in the heart of Metro-Manila, accessible to all points on the entire Metro-Manila area. Business and entertainment wise is recommended. Local government is very supportive of their constituents.

Overall Guide : Bad place for bus passengers. Separate loading and unloading areas. Unloading areas spaced too far apart. For example, the unloading point on Ayala for Makati Ave is nearly 200mtrs away
Not to be missed Heckle and Jeckle Bar , Jools , Stardust
