When in Davao, visiting the biggest mall is a must and Gaisano Mall of Davao must be on your list. It’s why I decided to stroll around the mall and take pictures of the recent developments. This will be another informative mall tour that all of you must take note. 🙂
Gaisano Mall of Davao opened its doors to the public since 1998. Unlike other malls, the development went gradual every floor. I remembered visiting this mall with my dad and it was still the first floor that opened. Through the years, it gained popularity and since then, it’s a mecca for mallgoers and right now, it’s still improving, competing with other malls here in the city.
When you’re inside this mall, on your right, you’ll see the National Bookstore. There are 2 stairways leading to the below ground floor and upper ground floor. You can find the supermarket and restaurants below ground floor. Most notable stores are Dunkin Donuts, Pizza Hut, Mang Inasal, Gonuts Donuts, Mix N’ Magic, Igloo, Living Bread, Goldilocks, Euro Baker & Cafe, etc.
Upper Ground floor are mostly popular clothing lines and fast food chains. Clothing lines that are found on the Upper Ground floor are Bench & Her Bench, Penshoppe, Human, Loalde, Plains & Prints, F&H, Lee, Kashieca, Oxygen, Rusty Lopez, Wrangler, ForMe, Mossimo, etc.
Popular restaurants and fast food chains that are of the same floor are Jollibee, McDonalds and Shakey’s. Also on this floor are those who want to eat delectable desserts like Krispy Kreme, Cafe France and Red Ribbon.When you’re not into fast food and want the comfort of a restaurant, Port Cafe is a great choice. It’s located on the second floor. From rice meals to pastas and desserts, they have it all. Whenever you’re in this area, there are also stores that sells fashionable items. Some are services like dental clinic. It’s like a mall within a mall.
Here on the second floor, you can find mostly stores that sells trendy apparels and has a specific area for jewelry stores. You can also find Blugre Coffee that sells not just great coffee but delectable desserts too!
Moving on to the third floor, it’s mostly housed with salons, gun shops, milk tea stores, tech stores, etc. You can still find a resto on this floor such as Dimsum Diner (the red one).
Spazio is known as a nook for cellphone and accessory stores. Before, the right side of Spazio houses restaurants that provided comfort and good food. For many times, I’ve been a loyal customer in one of their restaurants and indeed, I had fun eating lunch at their place and yes, I missed the place badly.
But this transformation brought light and more stores. It also drew more customers who wants to have new cellphones or have them repaired or just want to have accessories on it. 😀
