Best Malls to Shop in Taguig City

‘Tis the season to be merry once again! One more month until the official month of Christmas begins, as the last quarter of the year, the tradition of joy and cheer can be felt once again. With the news that Metro Manila is declared as Alert Level 3, the government lowers its restrictions, such as no more curfews for adults and children allowed in some public areas and essential services (e.g. dentists, pediatricians). As well as the announcements of vaccinations available for 12-18 years old and cinemas starting to operate again after 19 months from 2020 on November 10.

Families can go out again, of course, still practicing safety protocols to prevent the disease’s spread and guidelines requiring fully vaccinated statuses before entering any public and/or private spaces. Because of that, most public areas have already adapted fully to the New Normal and the usual businesses and hangouts of yesteryear have slowly reopened to the public’s delight.

Because of that, shopping malls with some level of openness are also included in Alert Level 3’s operating guidelines. The eased restrictions already sparked joy in going out and people enjoying the (physical) commercial life that everyone missed during the full-on digital state of shopping for essentials and wants during the height of the pandemic in 2020.
