Facts & Information
Located in Bay City, Pasay City, itÂ is the largest mall in the Philippines covering 19.5 hectares of land and 386,224 square meters of floor area. It was opened on May 21, 2006, inaugurated byÂ none other thanÂ Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo,Â madam president.Â Owned and operated under the management of Henry Sy, a Chinese-Filipino business tycoon, itÂ was builtÂ on reclaimed land and is located at the southmost tip of the Philippines’Â most popular road – Epifanio de los Santos AvenueÂ (EDSA). SM Mall of Asia also built theÂ first olympic sized skating rink, and the first IMAX cinema in the Philippines.
Thoughts In Binary
The couple of times I’veÂ been in SM Mall of Asia, I always marveled at it’s size from outside and feltÂ “that’s it?” once I covered all corners of the mall fromÂ inside. I have always said “Festival Mall is bigger,“Â after a day’s worth of malling. Call it a poor sense ofÂ estimation but it’s most probably becuaseÂ it only has two floors, and was designed in such a way that the shops and the separate portions areÂ so far apart from each other. It is the BIGGEST mallÂ in the Philippines, but it’s placeÂ asÂ one of the largest malls in the world is confusing. There are claims ofÂ it being the 3rd, the 6th and the 7th largest mall inÂ world; personally, I don’t mind because no mall in the world canÂ contain all the shops that can cover all my needs. However, what I love about this mall is it appeals to all from the filthy-rich to the filthy-poor. It’s definitely not an Ayala mall – one that is reserved for the brand-name adherents. Plus, it can accomodate all of them and then some.
