When one shops, it is important and very easy to just go to a mall who have it all. It’s better to go to a big mall, where you might got lost; than went into several other malls because one does not have everything you need. In the Philippines, malls are not just places for shopping, it is a place where most people kill time, and hangout with their loved ones. So with this type of practice, spacious and large malls are really needed. To give you a sneak peek on PH Malls, here’s a list of 10 largest malls in the country.
SM Lanang Premier
SM Lanang Premier is just one of the many branches of the Super Malls of Henry Sy. This Lanang Premier Branch is located at the heart of Davao City. It is a four-story indoor shopping mall which opened last 2012. It’s total gross leasable area is equal to 145, 450 m^2. Because of this very wide land area, it is considered to be the largest in MIndanao. Aside from that, it also is the most visited mall due to the fact that it caters to 237 stores and restaurants.

Another Ayala Property is this mall, TriNoma, an abbreviation of Triangle North of Manila. Before it was called TriNoma, its first name was NTCC – North Triangle Commercial Center.
