Is Burgos Street Safe?

Filipino fireworks
Stay at safe distance, please: handmade fireworks on New Years Eve on corner of Burgos and Durban Street.

Generally speaking P. Burgos Street in Makati is very safe. Police patrols are constantly on the road controling traffic. Each bar and hotel have armed security guerads who turn away people who appear shady. Crime rate is very low compared to other parts of Metro Manila and to red-light districts around the globe. There are beggars, street walkers and some scam artists, but they take a hike once they see a police patrol, usually. It's safe to ignore them and move on.

However, there is one very dangerous day on Burgos Street that requires attention: New Years Eve. Local Filipinos enjoy handmade fireworks that are lit up with large torches on the street. It's probably best to stay inside the bars or avoid this quarter during the hey hours of 31st December and New Year. I have never seen a serious injury myself, but it's scary to watch the drunk firework guys light up rockets and crackers without reasonable safety meassures.

Monkey business in Makati is conducted on P. Burgos Street. This strip of bars offers hot nightly entertainment for gents who seek company of exotic Filipina girls while watching dance shows and consuming cheap booze. Well, it's not that cheap, but a lot of fun.
