The man-made waterway, according to a post, “will be filled with authentic gondolas embarked with lovers serenaded by gondoliers.”

Just imagine riding a traditional, flat-bottomed rowing boat originally used on Venetian canals with your significant other or bestfriend while being serenaded.

22. Luxurious Venetian Vibe

You do not need to book that two-month-wage’s worth of ticket to Venice anymore as you the place will bring home the Venetian vibe with its architectural features: high arches, rustic facades, and a clock tower nearby, among others.

Visitors can even feed pigeons of different colors – a total Piaza experience for everyone! The place is not only perfect for people finding a photoshoot location, but also for busy individuals looking for a getaway.

33. Wide Range of Specialty Restaurants

Good news for the foodies out there. Grand Canal Mall will be found at McKinley Hill, a 50-hectare township which not only caters dining destinations, but also houses large multinational companies, top business process outsourcing firms, international schools, embassies and high-end luxury residences.

There is a total of 90 restaurant and commercial stores in the vicinity as of writing, including those in dining hotspots Venice Piazza and Tuscany.  You can never go wrong with this place as you can choose from numerous diners serving Italian and Mediterranean cuisines.

If Italy is among your esteemed travel destinations but you are trying to save up money for it yet, Grand Canal Mall, therefore, is something you should look forward to.

The Grand Canal Mall has its soft opening last Friday, February 12. For more information, visit Megaworld Lifestyle Malls’ website here.
