I especially enjoyed two visits to the Mall of Asia on a recent trip to Manila. There was good and bad, but it was mostly positive. The restaurants and shops are all that anyone could need if you are on a good budget. My personal favorites where J.Co donuts and ice skating. The most negative thing is that it is a little out of the way and you cannot walk there. Also, I had to wait about 45 minutes in the queue out front for a taxi one crowded evening when I wanted to get back to my hotel.
