SM Mall of Asia is not your average mall. If you’re looking for something different – a mall with a ton of added value – then SM Mall of Asia is exactly what you’re looking for.
Whether you’re a tourist of Manila or a long-time resident looking for a unique activity, there is something for everyone in MOA:
This is an interactive exhibit housed right in the heart of SM Mall of Asia. The Exploreum is a fun-filled learning experience that includes the use of 3D holograms, audio-visual presentations, realistic wax sculptures and virtual reality simulations.
This space is where everyone can enter to spark their imagination. Exploreum is located on the ground floor of the SM Mall of Asia Southside Entertainment Mall. The admission fee is P350 for gallery access and one dome theater show.
Catch a show or game at the Mall of Asia Arena – the latest and most modern entertainment space in the country. The events place is not only figuratively an “eyecon” but its parallel eye-shaped design is a testament to SM Lifestyle Entertainment, Inc.’s vision to deliver world-class entertainment to its patrons.
Nothing like a game of bowling with your friends to fire up your competitive side. Not to mention the beautiful lighting will help you get those perfect creative shots. Aside from bowling, they also offer billiards rentals and you can even host a company event here as well.
As a testament to the size of MOA, there is actually an amusement park on the premises. From the soaring MOA Eye Ferris Wheel to bumper cars, a toy Swing and a carousel, the SM amusement park is definitely something you shouldn’t miss.
The iconic globe located right in front of the mall’s main entrance is often decorated to commemorate special days and events.
The famous globe recently turned into a massive emoji to celebrate the International Day of Happiness last March 20, 2017. Similarly, back in August 2016, it lit up like a PokeBall and was the location for multiple PokeStops.
Ice skate in the Philippines! A few SM malls – including MOA – have indoor skating rinks. Located outside the main shopping mall, the MOA skating rink is open to everyone.
With an open rink, coach lessons, a skating assist program and a sled ride, SM MOA also allows reservations for hockey practice and games. An unlimited pass costs P450 and the rink is open between 10 am to 10 pm.
If you’re looking for a legit matcha experience, Kissako Uji Matcha Cafe is the place to be. Not only do they serve mouth-watering matcha desserts, but their simple cafe is a great place to snap some food flatlays and selfies with your friends. For P500, you can get great servings of dessert for two people.
French fries are just the tip of the iceberg at Spud Buds PH. Spud Buds has a range of great potato dishes but what makes this special is potatoes are fresh and prepped daily.
From flavored shoestring potatoes and Spud Balls to the ultimate potato skins, get ready to taste these starchy treats in a way you’ve never had them before. Also, given the effort in preparations of the quick snacks, Spud Buds are affordable.
Spud Buds 6 Spud Balls are about P50 for 3 pieces while potato skins come in at a reasonable P120.
SM Cinema is the largest film exhibitor in the Philippines and the cinemas at MOA are a testament to that. Check the latest movies in one of the biggest malls in the country.
From regular screening, Premiere, Centerstage to the Director’s Club and the IMAX, MOA cinema is new, modern and gives you a feast-for-the-eyes experience. Located on the Ground Floor of the MOA North Wing, the IMAX Theatre is a full movie experience.
More often than not, there are standees of your favorite characters, so take a snap or two with them. Never record or take photos inside of the cinema house.
The US-based chain of stores that specializes in healthy blended beverages is serving up their juices and snacks in SM MOA. Unlike other branches, this isn’t an enclosed store, rather, it’s a stall with a few chairs and tables in the middle of the popular mall.
If you’re looking for something cool to drink that looks good in an Instagram snap, Jamba Juice is where you need to be. The stall is located on the ground floor of the Main Mall.
Some of the prices are as follows: Energy Bowls cost P195, Toasted Bistro Sandwiches are at P175, and Steel Cut Oatmeal are at P95.
