SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City, Philippines

For those who love shopping, I believed this place can be one of the best for you. SM Mall of Asia is considered to be the 3rd largest shopping mall in Asia and the 4th largest shopping mall in the world. This is according to Forbes' World's 10 Largest Shopping Malls. The mall is located at Bay City, Pasay City, Philippines.

I am just happy that I once visited this place and had a window shopping there. Our hotel is located near this place as we visited Manila last January 2010.
The Mall of Asia was constructed within the reclamation area. It is built on 19.5 hectares of reclaimed land and has a gross floor area of 390,193 square meters. The mall is located at the southmost tip of Epifanio de los Santos Avenue.

The mall features the Philippines's first Olympic-sized ice skating rink. At 61 by 30 meters, the rink is described as the biggest of its kind in Southeast Asia. It can accommodate both recreational and competitive figure skating, as well as ice hockey.
