Packed with mega malls, colourful markets and upscale boutiques, Manila offers non-stop shopping fun and 2013 is no exception. Those looking for some exciting retail therapy when on holiday should consider staying at a Manila hotel such as The Heritage Hotel Manila. This hotel in Manila is only around 2 kms away from the massive SM Mall of Asia which is also home to an ice rink and an IMAX Theatre.

Those planning to indulge in some serious shopping in 2013 can also look to visit such malls as Greenbelt in Makati where Emporio Armani, Banana Republic, Hugo Boss, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Marks and Spencer, Hermes and Marc Jacobs are among the designer labels you can find here. Robinsons Place Manila and Glorietta are also worth exploring as is SM City North EDSA. Depending on when you visit you will also find a variety of bargain sales on offer which give you a chance to buy some of your favourite products at greatly reduced prices. The Dockers End of Season Sale, the MJ46 Centre Adidas Warehouse Sale and the Forever 21 Sale held at SM City North Edsa are some of the 2013 sales that have been attracting shoppers to this dynamic Asian city.
