The Podium is the upscale mall in the Ortigas Center was not only a celebration of the good life, but also the successful joint venture with the SM Group and the Keppel Group of Singapore. If you are looking for branded items, this is the place to be. It's a very chic mall but not as huge as the other malls like the nearby Megamall.

The SM Mall of Asia is the largest shopping mall in the Philippines and the 3rd largest shopping mall in the world. In terms of gross floor size, it is next to the Golden Resources Mall in China and the West Edmonton Mall in Canada). It opened on May 21, 2006. It is owned and operated by SM Prime Holdings, under the management of Henry Sy, a Chinese-Filipino business tycoon — regarded as one of the wealthiest men in Asia. (Forbes 2006 ranks him as the 14th richest person in southeast Asia, and "Henry Sy and family" as 74th richest person in the "Asia and Australia" region). The Mall of Asia was constructed within the reclamation area, west of Roxas Boulevard in Pasay City, aptly nicknamed "Bay City". The mall is located at the southmost tip of Epifanio de los Santos Avenue. A roundabout was constructed in the front of the mall with a huge bronze globe similar to Universal Studios. An esplanade was constructed at the back of the mall where it served as the observation center for the First World Pyro Olympics in December 2005.
Before going to start your vacation in the beach and you still got plenty of time around the city. Lets go shopping first. Hit the malls and make an afternoon of finding the best bargains with your friends or sisters. Or you can even add a twist to your friends shopping afternoon by assigning each person a buddy to shop for. In effect, you’ll all be shopping for each other and will end up with little friendship tokens at the end of the day. In this mall you can spend it with your friends and go look what you guys wanted. Of course don’t forget to buy stuff that you need for your vacation.
I went to the Mega mall wich was about an hour from the hotel. There is an ice skating rink in the middle of the mall wich I thought was cool. There are many stores and food courts to visit. If you are into shopping this is a place I recommend.
Green Hills. It's a bazaar/mall that sells everything from clothing to Video CD's. The key reason we went there was for the fresh water pearls. They are amazingly cheap, with an average price of $7 USD for a 16 inch string of pearls.
Manilenos are some of the world's most avid mall rats. The city's numerous, gargantuan department stores will readily attest to this...and SM MegaMall, one of the region's largest malls, is always jampacked with shoppers at any given time of the day.
SHOP, SHOP, and SHOP til you drop. I live here but shopping in Manila never gets old...hmm...maybe that's because I'm a woman?
Malls in Manila are in every part of the metropolis. SM malls have everything and in there you'll find stuff from bargains to mid-priced items from clothing to jewelry to toys to electronics. The SM Megamall is in Ortigas Center, Pasig City. Glorietta in Makati City is huge and I still get lost in there sometimes because it's a bunch of different buildings built at different times that are now connected to each other. A newer addition to the list of shopping centers is Powerplant in Rockwell, still in Makati. Stores are more high end...no WalMart-y items found here. Hotels and restaurants abound in all these areas.
