Christmas is right around the corner – have you started your holiday shopping yet? With long wishlists to fulfill and parties to attend, wouldn’t it be nice to have a one-stop shop where you can bag the best gifts and deals?
Here’s some good news: you can find exactly that at the Noel Bazaar, which is happening until December 17 at Okada Manila’s Crystal Pavilion. Here’s what awaits when you visit this year’s bazaar:
This year’s Noel Bazaar runs for five weeks – it’s been open since November 10, and you can still do your last-minute holiday shopping until December 17. That’s ample time to ask your loved ones about their wish list and make them come true!
Aside from being a shopping destination for the holidays, Okada Manila’s Crystal Pavilion is transformed into an enchanting Christmas Village, “Home of Wonder: A Christmas Wonderland”. Here, visitors can also enjoy captivating light shows, decorations, and other festivities. If you’re on the hunt for an IG-worthy background for your Christmas photos, the Crystal Pavilion doesn’t skimp on the holiday cheer.
Get ready to shop your heart’s content and not worry about paying additional fees when you visit the Noel Bazaar. Entrance is free for the Okada Manila bazaar schedule, so if you wish to return after your first visit, that’s one less expense to worry about.
Holiday shopping can get overwhelming, especially if you have a long list of friends and family you’d like to give back to. Don’t worry about taking your time because Noel Bazaar is open from 1 PM until 11 PM. That’s 10 hours of shopping and exploring hundreds of booths!
Shopping pro tip: make a list of all the gifts you need to buy so you can spend the remaining hours window shopping or buying gifts for yourself.
Shopping during the holiday season can get stressful due to traffic and difficulty in booking rides. If you plan on commuting to the venue, take advantage of the complimentary shuttle rides from SM Mall of Asia’s Pet Express to Okada Manila. You can catch these shuttles daily between 12 noon and 12 midnight.

As you make your loved ones happy with your well-thought-out gifts, you can also extend this holiday cheer to those in need, as a portion of Noel Bazaar’s proceeds will go to the GMA Kapuso Foundation and the Inquirer Foundation.
