Heyyyyyy ladies ... if you like it really big, then this one is for you.


Mall of Asia at the reclamation area of Roxas Blvd. has been open since May 2006. It is the Philippines' largest mall, and the 7th largest in the world. It is built on 19.5 hectares of land reclaimed from the sea. It's floor area is a whopping 386,224 square meters. It is so big that they have electric trams/carts going around for patons with "feet fatigue".

Mall of Asia or MOA as it is fondly called, is a 2 story structure composed of 4 buildings linked by walkways -Main Mall, Entertainment Mall, North andSouth Parking Buildings. It has 600 stores, 150 food outlets, and parking for 5000 cars ... o ano, laban ka pa?

Anchor establishments include SM Department Store, SM Hypermart, SM Appliance Center, ACE Hardware, Toy Kingdom, Our Home, Store Specialists, the Dell Call Center, IMAX Super Theater with 3D images projected on a humongous 22x30 meter screen - that's the equivalent of an 8 story building (350pesos a peek). Mango, Zara and all the usual fashion suspects are there. It is a veritable "find anything you want" mall. The back portion of the mall has a wonderful view of the bay - and is a good coffee or wine spot especially during sunset on days with a cool breeze.

For shopaholics - this is where your feet may give up before your wallet does.
Go .... stay for a week !

You said: "It is Asia's largest mall, and the third largest in the world (after Golden Resources Mall in China and West Edmonton Mall in Canada)." So where do you think china is located? Europe?

Hahaha ...
You are absolutely right.
My mind must have been travelling between continents when I was writing that. I have updated the "positioning" as per the latest Wiki hyperlink.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention. At least I know that you are actually reading the blog ... not just looking at pictures :-)

I appreciate your dropping by.
