At your doorstep - Manila's finest shopping malls including SM Megamall (one of the world's biggest), offices, restaurants and dining, nightlife, & public transport. A cozy 2-bedroom unit with living, dining & kitchen areas at the heart of bustling and vibrant Ortigas Business District with easy access to various financial, shopping and tourist hubs of Metro Manila. The furnished unit is perfect for business and leisure travelers.
While it may be overlooked due to the Makati Central Business District, Ortigas Center in Pasig City is more than just a place for yuppies to work. While the Center hosts a slew of offices ranging from fast food businesses to call centers, it is also home to several malls, schools, churches, and museums.
The country’s largest mall, with a maximum capacity of 4 million people, can be found here. SM Megamall has four large buildings, which houses over 1,000 stores and eating establishments. Megamall is one of the few places in the Metro where you can shop, dine, and even renew your passport and driver’s license, all at the same time.
If SM Megamall seems a little too excessive for you, there’s The Podium right next door. It’s a lot smaller and usually a lot less crowded.
The Shangri-La Plaza Mall can also be found in Ortigas Center. Head over here if you’re hoping to do a little more upscale shopping, as the mall carries high-end brands like Brooks Brothers, Kate Spade, and Ralph Lauren.
Night owls will be pleased at what Ortigas Center has to offer after hours. Metrowalk houses many bars and restaurants that don’t get as crowded as the ones in the Makati and Taguig areas.
If you’d rather spend your money soaking up the culture and history of the Philippines, don’t worry, Ortigas Center has got you covered. The area is home to the EDSA Shrine, a shrine that commemorates the peaceful demonstrations that overthrew two Philippine presidents: Ferdinand Marcos in 1986 and Joseph Estrada in 2001.
The oldest privately-run museum is found in this area too. The Lopez Museum and Library has over 500 paintings and artifacts in its collection and over 10,000 books, articles, and other primary sources in its library. There are no permanent exhibitions at this museum, so you’ll always be sure to see something new.
It may not be as busy or as glamorous as Makati, but Ortigas Center certainly has a lot to offer. (URL HIDDEN)
