Yes. We have the Venice here in the Philippines. Me and my children together with my elder sister and her daughter, went to Venice Grand Canal Mall yesterday. It is located at McKinley Hill, Taguig, Philippines. It is a new place here where the whole family could really enjoy. As you can see in the attached picture, this Venice Mall is really a replica of the one in Italy. We were so much amazed by its beauty. It's not fully completed, yet many people already enjoy its Grand beauty The picture was taken by me.

The first that comes to my thinking is the mall in Manila that is underwater because of the flood due to monsoon rain, I was lost, he he.

I live in a condo before and I remember the whole first floor got devoured by water. I was not able to buy food for a week I almost considered eating dog food. Lucky for me I live on the 27th floor.

Yes there are gondolas. But we did not ride on it because it is expensive.

@hereandthere It is somewhat expensive. It is Php 500.00 per head for almost 25 minutes. They will enertain you with Spanish songs while you are on board.

I thought you are talking about Malabon because that is the Venice of the Philippines for me. Specially during monsoon season.

Malabon is the dirty Venice because of its polluted waters.

@magallon Well at least their palabok can give Venice's pasta a run for it's money. Venice waters is actually dirty because it's connected to the sewers. You dont see people swimming on the Canals.

@Yar_Joey what I know is from Cavite then to SM Ayala. From there you take a taxi to Venice Plaza Mall. It will be for 100 to 110 pesos only.

There is no entrance fee. Anybody could go inside. It is a mall but not yet completed. Many stalls are still vacant.
