Shopping Mall Shopping
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.

  • By today's mall standards this is a small place. But a smaller place means a quick dash in dash out if you only need to look for and buy something specific. You don't need almost an hour just to park your car as in those super big malls. Ali Mall is very convenient. Saves a lot of time. You can find almost everything you need as in the super big malls. Less variety but still you will find what you need. Real time saver indeed.
  • Renovated and much more enjoyable to stroll around. Aircon is not actually able to cool down the place with lots of people coming in and out. More food choices. Also government offices are here so all the more accessible to process papers.
  • Shops here need a bit of sprucing up but this is a good destination if you're looking for a one stop shop for your government agency transactions (DFA, SSS, Philhealth, etc).
  • A good place for strolling at the city mall while you are waiting for your bus to arrive at Bus Port, you can do window shopping too and lots of restaurant you can choose to eat. We recommend this to travellers.
  • Alimall is I must say a diverse place. Satellite government offices are available here. They also have a cinema. They have lots of shopping options as well as dining choices.
