  • Play with your arctic friends at the Philippines’ first AR experience
  • Augmented Reality (AR) is on the rise. Things like Pokémon GO has helped push the popularity of AR past the breaking point, helping people experience things they normally wouldn’t… like playing around with penguins or polar bears.

    Shangri-La Plaza Mall in Mandaluyong has taken this to the next level with the introduction of the country’s first-ever broadcast augmented reality (BAR) experience aptly named Arctic Adventure.

    YES, IT’S HOT IN the Philippines, but that’s not going to be a problem for these penguins…/IMAGE Shangri-La Plaza

    It’s augmented reality taken to the next level. You won’t be able to actually hug a living penguin, play with a polar bear, or muck about with an orca, but you can see what it would look like through the magic of BAR.

    THANKS TO THE POWER of technology, you can “feel” a polar bear’s fur…/IMAGE Shangri-La Plaza

    If you want to experience the Shang Arctic Adventure for yourself, just head for Shangri-La Plaza Mall in Mandaluyong City. All it takes is a minimum single receipt purchase of P500 from May 6 to 21 or P750 from May 22 to June 4 at any Shang Plaza shop!

    Simply present your receipt (make sure it’s the original and not defaced, crumpled, or tampered with in any way) at the registration area located at the Mid-level 2/3 near TWG of the East Atrium, redeem your BAR ticket, and you’re good to go!
