Commuting to Glorietta Mall


A common stop before or after work, the Glorietta Mall is within walking distance of the major malls (SM Makati, Landmark, Greenbelt, etc.) and hotels (Shangri-la Makati, Manila Peninsula, Hotel Intercontinental, etc.) in Makati City. Oddly enough, the malls in the Makati area are more filled with people during the weekdays, rather than the weekends.
