Shopping Mall
Ali Mall is the first major shopping mall in the Philippines. It is located at Araneta Center, Cubao, Quezon City beside SM Cubao. The mall was named in honor of boxer Muhammad Ali, and was built in 1976, making it one of the oldest malls in the country. Recently, they relaunched the new Cinemas and Food Court.HistoryConstruction on the mall began in 1975 after Muhammad Ali's boxing victory against Joe Frazier in Araneta Coliseum, dubbed "Thrilla in Manila". At the time there were no malls in the entire country, so Ali addressed a speech to the Philippines to build a shopping mall near the Araneta Center in honor of his victory, a shopping mall with a floor area of 62,000 sq.m. In the 1980s, the mall has been undergoing expansions and renovations since its construction. In 2009, an expansion to Ali Mall was opened.

  • 我就住在这附近,这是我常来的一家购物商场,虽然里面虽然不算大,但是很方便,该有的店铺都有。由于住在这里也一段时间了,强烈认为这家商场需要翻新了,厕所餐厅什么和其他店铺都看起来比较旧。这里底层有免费学尊巴,但觉得舞蹈选择太少了。希望可以有其他的舞蹈可以学。  more »

  • Nostalgia at first sight. But you can see that improving the location. More exciting shops are popping up.
  • It has a wide array of mid range stores. Also contains important government quick serve agencies. Highly accessible and close to SM and Gateway.
  • I lived for 31 years in Araneta Center, let's just say its like my backyard. It offers some variety of choices. Layout is the same since before. Just some new stores and a walkway connecting to SM Cubao. Restaurants are situated mostly in Times Square Avenue. And government services are just at the 3rd floor.
  • This isn't exactly the best place to be. Make sure you're not walking around with your phone in your pocket or out make sure you have it safely locked or zipped in your pocket watch out for pickpockets. However the workers were pretty friendly
  • One of the Mall's with a post office inside, sure theres a lot of shops where they might have nice goods to buy, but the mall doesn't really have signs who show you the way out of it, i found myself in a creepy corridor - after that i had to ask 2 times a security guy to find the way out.. could be better, but its okay if youre looking for something particular - i bet you can find it there or in the surrounding malls!
