The area is the center for hotels, restaurants, shopping ,souveniers. Hotels have restaurants and nightclubs. Easily accessible day or night. Streets surrounding Ayala center have many different ethnic restaurants from Filipino, Italian, Chinese, Thai to hamburgers and pizza. Shops have everything from clothing to unmentionables.
