  • Popular as it is, you could always expect people coming from different places visiting MOA specially on weekends. They are always improving. Repair On-going most of the time, not just inside the mall,...  read more »
  • Remember the Bankok though much greater. Felt difficulty to find few women's clothing stores. Excellent for sports, restaurants and to meet you must have time because in fact, it's great.

  • The Mall of Asia is a one-stop shop. It practically has everything you need--food, clothes, medicines, appliances, recreation such as cinemas, arcades, salons, etc.! It has areas that are well maintained and areas that are dirty such as the street lined with restaurants and food stalls by the South parking. The restaurants and food stalls do not clear food scraps and trash on the floor promptly. They are unsightly and create a hint of an unpleasant smell. The cinemas are not cleaned well. We watched a movie at cinema 3 last night and the head rests of the seat's upholstery were torn. We could see the stuffing inside and worse the place smelled like foot odor! We kept asking if somebody removed his shoe because the smell was distracting. The walls and floor look sticky, uncleaned.
  • It's the mall that gives you the sight & scent of Manila Bay plus the noise of busy Manila minus the jeepneys. The crowd gives you a slice of Phil society who love food, malling & spending with family or friends. City tourists may well visit the area for Kultura souvenir products, safe streetfood at the Hypermart, lunch/ dinner at Cafe Adriatico or classy Philippine made home decor for pasalubong. The place has lots to see, quite overwhelming that you wont get caught people watching. Best to allot 1 fullday just to enjoy your rounds.
  • Mall of Asia is a massive seaside mall with dozens of selections on almost everything you could ever imagine. It almost feels like a small town than a mall since it is surrounded by a convention centre, condominiums, hotels, and offices. The mall itself also seems to be perennially under-construction. New extensions and stores are being added all the time. Currently under construction is the Galleon Museum, and plans are currently being finalized for its massive roof to be converted into some sort of a multipurpose space. The main gripe I have about the mall is that it was intentionally designed for people to get lost in its maze of stores. The overhead signages are absolutely useless since they often do not say whether or not something is on the 2nd or the Ground Floor. The mall also doesn't have prominent signages or prominent landmarks that patrons could use to orient themselves within the mall. This is completely opposite to what one experiences when one goes to visit other malls. Likewise, there were very few digital kiosks available for people to find their way inside the mall. The redeeming part about the mall is that it has great views of Manila Bay. The only complaint I have is that the mall should have provided enough benches so that people don't have to climb on top of the sea wall. Alternatively, the mall could have at least provided steps for patrons to use so they could climb over and seat on the sea wall with dignity.
  • One of the largest malls in asia. Almost all botiques in Metro Manila has a branch here. Food is also great since there's a huge selection. It also has a cinema and an Ice Skating Rink.
  • Largest mall (so I hear) in Asia. No way to cover the entire area in one outing. Pick a wing and explore. Save the rest for another day.
