Take advantage of these Christmas staycation offers before January ends
MANILA, Philippines – This is Christmas in Manila: bright lights, joyous gatherings, hearty eats… as well as crushing crowds, choking traffic, and general holiday-induced stress. Now that you've successfully avoided the crowds and fulfilled all your holiday responsibilities (eg, holiday shopping and must-attend social gatherings), it's time to turn the tables around and treat yourself.
The best way to avoid the holiday – and post-holiday – rush is, ironically, to stay at the center of it all. Ayala Land, in partnership with MasterCard, has launched the Makati Staycation program, which offers discounts for 3 hotels in the area: Raffles Makati, Fairmont Makati, and Holiday Inn Suites Makati, plus the Ayala Museum.
