Go Beyond Makati's Malls Through These Free Walking Tours

Get to know the city in a not-so-usual way.

(SPOT.ph) While Makati City is known for its towering skyscrapers, people in suits rushing to their glass-walled offices, and massive malls sitting right next to each other, it's also home to a history that traces its roots to a pre-Hispanic kingdom on the banks of Pasig River. The local government of Makati is looking to familiarize more people, residents and tourists alike, with this interesting narrative through free walking tours running from Tuesdays to Sundays starting February 18.

A different site is featured every day: St. Alphonsus Mary de Liguori Parish Church on Tuesdays; the Central Business District every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday; Salcedo Market on Saturdays; and Legazpi Market on Sundays. You can also choose between a heritage tour or a food and pub crawl of Poblacion. Sign-ups can be done through the Makati tourism office’s online form.
