Mandaluyong

Mandaluyong

Mandaluyong City is one of Metro Manila’s key centers for shopping, finance, and commerce. Best known for its central business district, Ortigas Center, the city is marked by a cluster of high-rise buildings and sprawling retail districts that cater to the needs of every modern-day Filipino.

It’s no secret that people from the metro love spending their time in Mandaluyong’s huge malls. These cultural hubs conveniently bring together shopping, entertainment, dining, and even religious activities like Sunday mass. And to understand this local phenomenon, it’s best to start at the very heart of Philippine malling culture, SM Megamall.

With a maximum capacity of 4 million people, SM Megamall is the country’s largest mall to date, housing a wide variety of establishments that cater to every possible budget. The city is also home to other shopping destinations like The Podium, St. Francis Square Mall, Forum Robinsons, and the upscale Shangri-La Plaza mall.

Once you’ve had your fill of the hectic urban jungle, head over to the Greenfield District for a refreshing change of pace. This patch of green within the metropolis is a peaceful hub of parks, retail stores, dining strips, and residential buildings.

Guests can enjoy relaxing afternoons filled with live music, art performances, and tasty treats at the district’s widely popular Greenfield Weekend Market. And if you’re looking for a place to spend a night or two, Mandaluyong is home to several top tier hotels like the luxurious five-star hotel EDSA Shangri-La, Manila.

Those looking to add a geeky twist to their Mandaluyong experience can play Magic: The Gathering and other tabletop games at Tobey’s Games Cafe, unleash their inner Sherlock Holmes by trying the country’s first escape room game at Breakout Philippines, or check out the nearby toy gallery and restaurant, Sci-Fi Cafe.

You can also learn about Philippine history by visiting the San Felipe Neri Church, a battle site of the 1896 Philippine revolution, on the corner of Boni Avenue. Another monument of the revolution is the Plaza Tatlong Bayani along Bonifacio Street, which pays homage to Filipino heroes Andres Bonifacio, General Kalentong, and Laureano Gonzales.

If you happen to find yourself in Mandaluyong during the holidays, don’t forget to pass by Policarpio Street in Barangay New Zaniga as well. The Philippines is famous for having one of the world’s longest Christmas seasons, and the brightly decorated houses of Policarpio perfectly capture that joyful and vibrant Filipino holiday spirit.
