With long weekends coming up, get out and about this August as Shangri-La Plaza prepares a roster of events to enjoy quick yet energizing breaks in the city. From catching Argentinean and Bollywood flicks, to getting some fab ideas for entertaining at home, here are some fantastic ways to make the most out of this month’s holidays.

Jam with an OPM rock star. Shang kicks off August with popular OPM singer-songwriter Ebe Dancel’s anticipated performance at the Grand Atrium on August 3 at 7PM. Watch and sing along to his repertoire of sentimental hits that captured the hearts of avid OPM fans.

Enjoy quality “me” time. Splurge on a luxurious session at The Spa, Skin 101, Skin Station or at Belo at the Shang for a much-needed dose of R&R. Set a day for pampering and get a steam bath or a soothing massage to keep stress at bay. Isn’t that the perfect way to relax and recharge before another work week starts?

Take the gang to a unique movie marathon. It’s a treat for cinephiles with back-to-back foreign film festivals at the Red Carpet – for free! Schedules should be booked and ready (popcorn is optional but highly recommended) to catch award-winning movies at Cine Argentino from August 14 to 17, and screenings of the first-ever Film Festival of India from August 22 to 25.

Spruce up your space. Take the extra free time as an opportunity to hunt for pieces that can liven up a space or finally complete your place. Shop for unique finds and art pieces at the Art Plaza at Level 4, Main Wing to spruce up rooms and make them cozier or more “aesthetic” than ever.

Find some inspo for entertaining at home. Learn surefire ways to be the “hostess with the mostest” at Shang by Design from August 21 to 25 at the Grand Atrium. Shang teams up with their Home Brands to bring the best tips and tricks for great home entertaining. The home exhibit features themes curated and created by Filipino designers and personalities-such as Moroccan Nights, Afternoon Tea Party and more!

Packed with an eclectic mix of well-thought-out events, there’s every reason to visit Shangri-La Plaza and #FeelTheShangVibe this August for a long weekend well spent.
