Shangri-La Plaza has the international brands.
There are a few malls in the country which can be deemed "classic" and the Shangri-La Plaza certainly fits that bill!
If you cannot remember or grew up in the rise of the contemporary, art-deco theme of the newer malls, a classic structure would be a single building housing various shops and restaurants. Ask many a Manila Metro local, and the Shangri-La Plaza will always pop up as an example of a classic mall of choice.
Impeccably clean and consistently providing shoppers with a tranquil ambiance, this has become a favourite for those who like to shop and dine serenely.
