Author's remarks
The Burgos street from Makati avenue to Kalayaan avenue, just about 219 meters (239 yards) stretch, has been tagged as the "red district" of Makati. That portion of the street is rowdy and "crowdy". It is known for hooking up. The narrow pavements are blocked by multiple objects, beggars, and peddlers. It is against the law to give alms to beggars. It is also illegal to beg. Some of these beggars are professional and syndicated, like the women in malong carrying babies, which actually are not their own. There are also teenage girls accompanied by a young boy or a girl, who pretend to be lost, asking for help, or needing some money for transportation home. So, be cautious.

So, if this is the type of neighborhood that you don't want to be in when you get out of your hotel, try the other hotels. The "red district" is just a short walk. Once you're out of it, you'd see better places along Makati Avenue, and in the other end of Burgos street, you'd find a number of Korean stores and restaurants.
