I like this place so much, one of the financial district. Lot of shopping, restaurants, movie theater, banks, high rise buildings, hotel. You name it you can have it. Every time my vacation I always go to this place.

This place is very large. It is spread over a number of sections. If you know what you are looking for then it is easy. If you don't, enjoy the walk, it is very large. Good eating options, and variety of shops is never ending. Oh, and make sure your wallet is full. Ayala is a high end shopping mall... More

There are a few major shopping complex joined to each other and it may take a whole day to cover the whole place.

Great place if you like shopping at the richie rich shops, but it's pretty sad once you've been to visit the poorer parts of the city. It would be easier to handle if it wasn't so garish and ostentatious. The park is one of the nicer green spaces in the city though.

Huge mall with lots of walking. Shops galore, although didn't find anything to buy. Tons of food places to eat at. They had Zumba in the open food court where everyone could follow along for free, was fun to watch. Very easy to get lost in though.

It is a mall. A massive interconnected web of several malls and department stores but the only indication you move from one to the other is a fresh set of security guards so it is functionally a single space. There mall has your usual mall features, stores, cinemas and a ton of western and local fast food joints.
