Pasay

Endless Fun & Entertainment

Pasay City is the first thing you see once you step off the plane, as the Ninoy Aquino International Airport is located here. But more than just the airport, Pasay is also a great place to take in some culture and go shopping. The sprawling complex of the Cultural Center of the Philippines is ideal for biking, jogging, and taking in international and local theater productions. Pasay City is also home to the SM Mall of Asia, which held the title of largest shopping mall in the Philippines before SM North EDSA usurped it.
