SM Mall of Asia
SM Mall of Asia, also known for its abbreviation SM MoA is one of the largest shopping malls in the metro located at the Bay City in Pasay.

One of the MOA's main highlights is the country's first ever IMAX Theatre, and the Director's Club Theatre for a more intimate and comfortable watching. The mall also showcases the Philippines's first Olympic sized ice-skating rink, which is meant for competitions and recreational use, which is dubbed as the largest of its kind in Southeast Asia.
