Festival of Lights at the Ayala Triangle Gardens

Merry Christmas.

Condè Nast Traveler picks Christmas lights display in Philippines' central business district as one of the best in the world. It is listed as one of the seven places where you could see spectacular Christmas lights together with Tivoli Gardens (Copenhagen Denmark), Champs-Elysées (Paris, France), Somerset House (London, UK), Silver Dollar City (Branson, MO), Kobe Luminarie (Kobe, Japan) and Christmas Market (Jena, Germany).

The popular US magazine described the Ayala Triangle Gardens as "natural haven with a diverse population of trees, including kamuning, golden palms, and fire trees. The gardens are a courtyard for the surrounding business district, and started as a way to brighten up the evenings for the workers. As you make your way through the park, Christmas hymns and songs are synchronised to the lights to create an immersive holiday experience."

The Festival of Lights at Makati City is presented by Ayala Land in partnership with HSBC. It is inspired from the Rio De Janeiro Carnivale with music collaboration from Watusi Manila, namely Anna Piramide, Jazz Nicolas and Mikey Amistoso.

The lights and sounds show runs every 30 minutes from 6pm to 10pm every night until January 4, 2015.
