SM Mall of Asia is undeniably the Philippine’s top lifestyle mall-conveniently set in a sprawling commercial complex by the Manila Bay and the southernmost tip of EDSA, the arterial road that connects most of Metro Manila, it is equipped with world-class facilities and amenities, and is home to nearly a thousand retail, dining, leisure, and entertainment establishments that represent the best of local and international industries.The mall draws crowds from all over the region and the country not only with its topnotch mall features but also by hosting the season’s hottest events. Its spacious activity areas are the favorite venues for concerts, product launches, promotional events, and other performances that appeal to SM Mall of Asia’s wide range of shoppers.More than a retail wonderland by the Bay, SM Mall of Asia is also a first-rate tourist attraction. The mall responds to this distinction by providing excellent tourist-friendly services one won’t find anywhere else-all rendered with a smile and all the warmth of the world-famous Filipino hospitality.
