Metro Manila · SM Megamall
With the newly constructed Fashion Hall, SM Megamall is now among the biggest malls in the country. Megamall is a welcome place for respite for many of Ortigas Center’s office workers. It offers a wealth of choices when it comes to hangout places and restaurants (including a very good foodcourt) as well as numerous stores that sell anything from groceries to books.
About the Mall
'SM Megamall opened in 1991 with 6 levels of pure entertainment, shopping and dining choices. The two main buildings, Mega A and Mega B, equally house major SM retail affiliates such as Our Home and Toy Kingdom in the former, and the SM Supermarket and the SM Department Store at the latter' (from their Website).
Among Megacitizens, SM Megamall is well-known for its 'Cyber Zone'. The Cyber Zone being an area where you can buy any gadget, phone, computer, television which is available in the Philippines. It gives you a lot of options and – if you are good in haggling – you'd get your gadget at a very good price as well. It's worth to take your time, compare and 'discuss' the price of the gadget of choice.
In the second half of 2014, the H&M flagship store opened its doors in the Megamall Fashion Hall. The latest expansion of the mall, Fashion Hall has a basement parking area and another five levels built for a comprehensive shopping and dining experience. From clothing stores the likes of H&M, there are home stores, restaurants, a Bingo area, and an IMAX theater. This area of Megamall also houses a bowling alley.

Rodriguez Ave) and then turn into Canley Road and follow Shaw Boulevard. Megamall is also located near the MRT-3 Ortigas Station. If you are prepared to take the public transport in the city, the easiest way is to hop on the MRT and get off at this station, then walk some minutes.
