Hi! I was thinking yesterday to post this but apparently, we were included to the electric service interruption due to relocation of secondary poles because of road widening. However, it’s back so I decided to share now our short visit in MOA.
MOA stands for Mall of Asia which is located in Bay City, Pasay Philippines. It is just 10-15 minutes from Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) and is the largest mall in Asia that’s why it is called MALL of Asia.
It was our first time to visit this mall and nah, it is very spacious with a huge supermarket, dining area, a lot of salons, nice stores, cafe’s and many more so you can have great meals here or even have some good coffee because this mall really has it all.We were craving for siomai so we decided to eat in Chowking and after that, as a first timer who is not familiar with the place, we got lost inside because there are many indoor and outdoor part of the mall so we were like asking the people if where is the exit which I think, it was soooo embarrassing hahaha 😄.
Anyway, at the back of the mall is the scenic view of the Manila Bay which I really enjoyed. Take note that it is not polluted so you can walk along the coastline without worrying about the smell.With free entrance, there are also few amuzement rides (including the farris wheel) which we didn’t try any of them because our purpose was really the view of Manila Bay. There were those that were participating with the rides but I observed that most people prefer to just sit while waiting for the sunset. It’s the favorite reason to be here. But I have no photo of the sunset because we left the place at around 4:00 pm.Aside from that, there are also plenty of food stands here. The bay view on the side and stalls on the other side which I think, it’s a great place to have some rest after spending so much time shopping at the mall of Asia.
It was 4:00 pm when we decided to go home because we were thinking about the traffic. If you have been in Manila, then you probably know that rush hour or not, traffic has become a normal scenario in EDSA these days. Here’s a photo that I took when we were along EDSA dealing with the Manila traffic.
And here’s a photo of traffic in EDSA taken by pbatara.
Anyway, We enjoyed our short visit in MOA despite of the traffic. So if you want to relax when you are in Manila then I would suggest you to try in Mall of Asia. They say that it is better to visit the place at night because of the fireworks display. It is accessible by bus, jeepney, and taxi. Just ask if where the mall of Asia is and everyone in Metro Manila knows. Fronting the mall is a big iron globe. Here’s a photo of it taken by whoa.leo.
So if you saw this, then it’s an indication that you are already in Mall of Asia. Have fun.! 🙂
