Strategically located in Tianhe, the French tradition for Arts and Culture is the permanent feature of the Sofitel Gangzhou Sunrich.
Sofitel Philippine Plaza sits adjacent to the historic Cultural Center of the Philippines, with both domestic and international airports only 15 minutes away. The ancient Spanish walled city Intramuros, the Manila Cathedral, the renowned Mall of Asia, as well as The Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) are only a short distance from the hotel. Sofitel is approximately half an hour away from Makati City, Manila’s central business district, where the finest shopping, dining and entertainment options abound – the Greenbelt, Glorietta, Rockwell Powerplant malls and The Fort strip being among the most popular destinations.
The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) was opened in 1969 to promote and preserve Filipino arts and culture, and was envisioned to become a mecca of culture and the arts in Asia. Since its opening, it has showcased the Bolshoi, Kirov, Royal Danish ballets, as well as contemporary American, French, German, and Philippine companies. The CCP was formally inaugurated on September 8, 1969, attended by a number of international personalities, including California Governor and Mrs. Ronald Reagan, who were representing President Richard Nixon.
The Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) is located in the Cultural Center of the Philippines complex in Pasay City, a stone’s throw away from the hotel. This state-of-the-art facility has been the host of numerous local and foreign conventions, meetings, fairs, and social events. It was also home to the office of the Vice President of the Philippines until 2005. The construction of the state-of-the-art complex was undertaken in a short span of 23 months, from November 1974 to September 1976, with Leandro Locsin as architect, who was subsequently named a National Artist.
SM Mall of Asia is the 2nd largest mall in the Philippines after SM City North EDSA, 3rd largest shopping mall in Asia and the 4th (Ref. Forbes' World's 10 Largest Shopping Malls) largest shopping mall in the world. It is a five-minute drive from the hotel, and is widely popular for its immense collection of shops, restaurants and various entertainment centers. The mall attracts daily average foot traffic of about 200,000 people.
