Best known for Ortigas Center, a central business district, Mandaluyong is a place for modern-day Filipinos. The root of the malling culture in the Philippines can be traced in here where SM Megamall is located. Other shopping malls found here are St. Francis Square Mall, Forum Robinsons, The Podium and Shangri-La Mall.

Mandaluyong is not all about shopping, however. Some of the most iconic historical landmarks are here like the EDSA Shrine and Boni Avenue where San Felipe Neri Church is located. The church was one of the battle sites of the 1896 revolution. Head to Plaza Tatlong Bayani to know more about Andres Bonifacio as well as Laureano Gonzales and General Kalentong.

For adventurous souls, go to themed restaurants and facilities in Mandaluyong. Play Magic: The Gathering at Tobey’s Games Café or Sci-Fi Café or the escape room games at Breakout Philippines. During Christmas time, pass by Policarpio Street and marvel at the sight of brightly decorated houses.
