All the way from Europe, and the US

These look like second hand cars

I don't think that's how you transport luxury cars to your dealership.

If I am to include malls within the greater Metro Manila area, atleast 30 malls will be added in the list.

Also malls in the Philippines are generally bigger.

*Glorieta 1 to 5 counted as one only.
*Greenbelt 1 to 5 also counted as one only.
How generally bigger are they? Not all the malls in the phil are bigger than those in indo, so if indo have more malls obviously the space are bigger, so the number of mall in manila is very very questionable.

Also in the listing there isnt 200 malls you are lying, don't be jelly becuz we have more malls lol.

You do know the data are made by first world nation do you

And how much you know about indo enough to accuse we don't have more malls?

Its because retailers know the massive amounts of rich people the city has.

Do you know that 30% of all luxurious condominium in Singapore is owned by Indonesian. In Singapore, Indonesian are considered to be either very rich or just a maid. Whereas Filipino is generally considered basically just maids/low class worker.
That has started to change. Why do you think Singaporeans are threatened with the influx of Filipino professionals ? It is because there are also many Filipinos who are already working as nurses, IT professionals and other better paying jobs now. I know a Filipino woman who is working as a graphics artist in a fashion magazine in Singapore.

Indonesia is bigger than the Philippines and it has a bigger population so it is normal to have more things of course. However, inspite of it being bigger, I think the Philippines and the Filipino people are more popular than Indonesia and Indonesians.

More popular in terms of?

Filipinos are everywhere globally working, so generally they're better known (or atleast i think it that way although its not heard of in europe that much), the english proviciency makes them more on demand + the high unepmloyment in home country. But in terms of business world indonesia is more appealing and talked about more often.

You really don't know how to read do you? Around 200 malls is a close estimate. For sure the list gives you over 170 malls. Excluded in the count are those under construction and those outside Metro Manila (638 sqm) but within the so called Mega Manila.

Even if you exlude the so called supermarkets only, you will still arrive at more than 170 malls. How much mor eif we include those outside Metro Manila but within the Mega Manila area?

Note Jakarta is actually bigger in land area by more than 100 sqm as compared to Metro Manila.

If we include Metropolitan Jakarta of Jabodetabek with 28 million im sure the figure would easily grow more than double lol. Tangerang, Bekasi and Bogor in particular has been enjoying mall growth, especially with recent ban to build more malls, although there is still mall being built.

Metro Manila have population of 11 million but Jakarta with 9.5 million is still 100km sq bigger, its a bit strange and still Jakarta holds more malls.

Out of the top 50 biggest malls in the world, 11 came from the Philippines while only 3 came from Indonesia. .. By sampling, you can conclude that malls in the Philippines are generally bigger.

If you want, list all your malls and thier respective floor areas.

Yes but we still have more malls and generally well sized too + more globally connected with the number of global designer stores available.
