– Spend Mother’s Day in Makita this May 2011

Published: Thu Apr 07 2011

This day is celebrated all over the world at various times of year to reflect the respect and love that mothers deserve. Mothers in the Philippines are known as ‘ilaw ng tahanan’, which translates as light of the home.

While there are no specific celebrations for Mother’s Day, there is plenty to see and do in the city and many people will be taking the opportunity to take their mother out for the day. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from for those who want to have an evening out, or there are plenty of shops for those who prefer a little retail therapy. Visitors are rarely disappointed when they visit this city.

There are plenty of hotels in Makati to choose from if you are wishing to stay in the area during the event. Those who are not taking part in any celebrations may find that hotel rooms fill quickly due to the popularity of the area at this time of year.

Lek Boonlert, head of marketing at, has suggested that anyone wishing to stay in Manila during the time of the celebrations should book their accommodation in plenty of time. This will avoid disappointment at a later date. This celebration is a time for families to get together and a large influx of people are expected in the area. Accommodation is likely to become scarce at this time.
