Bonifacio High Street is not considered a luxury shopping street. The fact there are no designer boutiques such as Louis Vuitton or Prada in that area. There are some expensive restaurants in High Street but stores such as Nike, Iora or Charles & Keith are not really high-end products.

On the other hand, Makati Ave. especially within Ayala Centre can be considered as a luxury shopping street to the the presence of brands such as Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Gucci, etc.

you can also stroll across the shops for the latest finds in limited edition sports wear, lifestyle and the likes. this is a favorite hang-out
among the city's upper crust.



next, is The Mind Museum. not really a shopping destination, but a good place to while away time. you can also buy yourself, or if you have kids, some
toys or educational stuffs inside the museum.



West Super Block - is the creme de la creme of luxury retail and dining. the country's first Apple store is rumored to open here.
Shangri-la will offer extensive retail space in addition to Ayala's own proposed mall within the block. still under construction.




a walking distance away from the West Super Block, is another commercial and retail attraction called Bonifacio High Street Central or BHS Central
key features are; the amphitheater, a multifaceted water plaza, garden islands and more!




and next destination is Bonifacio High Street, a one-of-a-kind shopping and dining experience with retail shops and restaurants lined up on both sides
of the park.







if you're still up for walking, Serendra is our next stop. at this point, you may want to satisfy all your gastronomic desires after all the long walks.




if you think you have seen enough to call it a day, there's actually a couple more to explore that shouldn't be missed. Market Market, is a
shopping mall right behind Serendra. the mall is currently undergoing major renovations due to market competition with SM's planned mall
just across the street.




and lasty, your last stop is SM Aura, as the name implies, is owned by SM Prime Holdings - the country's largest mall developer. a good movie
in IMAX 3D is a good way to end your day.

That is the kind of image Champs Elysées has right here in Asia. And no doubt that there are some luxury and designer boutiques in that area.

I recall walking quite a long length of Champs with plenty of stores and sidewalk space. Quite a nice walk indeed.
You are right. In terms of malls. The very nicely spruced up Pacific Place mall comes closest to a super high end street.

Shopping streets in tropical Asia are torturous to visit from 11AM - 4PM.
