Learn the exciting "rags to riches" story of Philippine’s major commercial centre and financial hub - Makati. Dismissed as a "worthless swamp" by a Spanish conquistador in 1571, Makati is now the country’s biggest business district with the highest concentration of multinational and local corporations. On this 4 hour tour, you will get to explore the area’s impressive rise to prominence with visits to three key museums. After a morning hotel pick up, head over to Yuchengco Museum to discover stunning examples of local and international art - the museum’s central location will also allow you to explore Makati’s busy daily life. Go on to the art deco Neilson Tower, the country's first airport, now a restaurant. Your final stop is Ayala Museum housing ethnographic and archaeological exhibits on Filipino culture. You can then choose to head back to your hotel or continue exploring Makati.
