Along with the arrival of the holiday season comes the rush of holiday shopping. While some people choose to start buying Christmas gifts once the Ber months step in, some put it off until it’s time to finally do some last-minute shopping.
If you’re still looking for a few gift ideas or you need a massive holiday shopping haul, you might want to check out this year’s Noel Bazaar at Okada Manila. We checked it out, so here’s what you can expect.
The Noel Bazaar at Okada is located in the Crystal Pavilion. Once you step inside the property, you’ll surely be mesmerized by the grand sweets-themed Christmas tree of Okada. It’s decorated with giant pastries and candies!
After taking lots of photos with the Christmas decor, you can then make your way into the Noel Bazaar. Entrance is free; just register at the booth before entering.
This year’s Noel Bazaar at Okada offers a holiday shopping experience unlike any other.
You just might literally shop until you drop with the wide variety of local brands and sellers you can check out at Noel Bazaar. There are lots of products you can purchase as gifts for friends and family—or even for yourself!
There are locally-made soaps and shampoo bars, lots of locally-made jewelry, Korean-style clothes, a lot of food items, beauty products, skincare, toys, and even unique items such as smart luggage!
While you go around and shop, you should also check out the many photo spots along the bazaar. There are many themed “booths” that will give you awesome photo souvenirs.
If you get hungry in the middle of your shopping spree, there’s a mini food court in the middle of the bazaar where you can enjoy savory snacks, meals, drinks, and sweet treats.
There’s even live music you can enjoy by some amazing artists to elevate the ambiance of your shopping experience.
On the weekends, you can also get some ukay-ukay items from GMA Celebrities. 100% of the proceeds will go to the GMA Kapuso Foundation. So, not only will you get stylish celebrity-approved pieces, but you’re also helping out the foundation!
You might even catch live performances by some of your favorite celebs.
After filling up your shopping bags with gifts and treats for everyone, you should, of course, take a moment to enjoy Okada’s Fountain Show and Christmas Lights Show which start at 6 PM.
The Noel Bazaar at Okada is open daily from 1 PM to 11 PM; only until December 17! For your convenience, Okada also offers a free shuttle to the bazaar from SM Mall of Asia (in front of Pet Express).
For the Southies, you can also check out the Noel Bazaar at Filinvest Tent Alabang from 11 AM to 9 PM; only until December 10.
So, go ahead and enjoy the holiday shopping experience at this year’s Noel Bazaar!
