S - SM Mall of Asia Bay Area

Wikipedia says, "SM Mall of Asia (MOA) is a shopping mall owned and developed by SM Prime Holdings, the largest mall developer and owner in the Philippines. SM Mall of Asia is the second largest shopping mall in the Philippines and the 4th largest shopping mall in the world. It has a land area of 42 hectares and has a gross floor area of an approximate 390,193 m² (4.2 million square feet) and 407,101 m² of total area. The mall is located at Bay City, Pasay City, Philippines just near the SM Central Business Park, the Manila Bay and the southern end of EDSA (Epifanio de los Santos Avenue). The mall attracts a daily foot traffic of 200,000 people."

Aside from the shops in the mall, there is also a Science Center, an IMAX theater, and a convention center. The mall also has a huge space where concerts are held. For this edition of ABC Wednesday, I would share pictures from the bay area of SM Mall of Asia.

At the back of the mall is where the bay area is located. Most people stay there to relax, enjoy the view, and just enjoy the day. These pictures were taken last January - the first time I visited the mall (it's located very far from where I live). They say the bay area hosts a great sunset view, but since it was a cloudy day, all I got were sunrays bidding the day goodbye. On weekends (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday), the bay area gives people a fireworks show at around 8PM.

Very nice...didn't know about this mall.

I live in Minnesota and here if you say 'MOA' you are talking about the Mall of America here in Bloomington, Minnesota.

Sounds like a fun place to be. Sorry to hear about the tragedy of the massacre involving the election. Hope you have a good weekend.

Shopping is the best habits of Filipino’s. I agree that the Philippines are actually called the Mall Republic with the all- pervasive malls. The Mall of Asia (MOA) is the largest mall in the Philippines. That’s why many people love to go and shop there. It is not the hindrance being a poor going in a largest mall because we have so called “Window Shopping”.
