NOEL Christmas Bazaar 2012 - World Trade Center, Manila

On its 13th year, the two-part NOEL Bazaar dubbed the Bazaar With A Heart, the country's biggest fund-raising event for the underprivileged, unfolds from 16 Nov to 23 Dec. This year's NOEL Bazaar is the biggest and longest edition to date.

The first part of Noel Bazaar at World Trade Center, Manila opens its door to early Christmas shoppers from November 16 to December 02. It only shows that Holiday Season is just around the corner. The second part of NOEL Bazaar will be held at PICC Forum Tent from December 14 to 23.

Both first and second part of NOEL Christmas Bazaar open from 12 nn to 10 pm on weekdays and 10 am to 10 pm during weekends. For the on-going NOEL Bazaar at WTC, admission is free from Monday to Wednesday while 50 pesos entrance fee will be charged for each visitor on other days. Unluckily, we visited WTC on Saturday thus we paid 150 pesos for three of us and another 35 pesos for the parking.

Noel Bazaar is in partnership with Metrobank and GMA Network hence; you will notice a huge GMA Celebrity Pavilion inside where some of its celebrities are assigned to visit the different booths of the pavilion from time to time.

The beneficiaries of NOEL Bazaar are GMA Kapuso Foundation, Bantayog ng mga Bayani, Associate Missionaries of Assumption Foundations, Sts. Peter and John Church and Noel P. Gozon Memorial Clinic.

Various items and merchandises from over 1000 concessionaires are being sold at affordable prices such as clothing and accessories, leather goods, novelty items, shoes, Christmas & home decors, native foods and drinks and other gifts and personal items. More so, established brands such as Ipanema, Philips and Anne Klein to name a few can be bought as well inside the bazaar. It is also worth to mention that Rustan Marketing has several stalls under its name.

You can even have an affordable meal inside the bazaar. We ordered chicken barbeque with side dish and 1 cup of rice for 75 pesos only.

This Christmas Fair is a great event especially for those who want to avoid the seasonal shopping rush while searching for quality and affordable products. In doing so, shoppers will have the best shopping experience while helping the beneficiaries of this fair. Not to mention the opportunity to see some GMA celebrities in person while enjoying the annual Christmas Bazaar.
