Travelled last June 21st with my friend. We decided to go to Divisoria and canvas anything that we can buy on our pay day. PNR train stops at Tutuban Station then we had to walk a little bit and cross the street to reach Tutuban mall. Outside the renovated PNR station there are "pedicabs" that offers passengers a ride to... More

I remember the first time I went to Tutuban Mall, I was so amazed in seeing so many good their selling. But the thing is, the prices of a same item varies from one stall to another. Tutuban Mall is like a big thrift shop. A piece of advice when going to shopping there, try to win the cheapest or... More

just have to be careful with your belongings when going out or even inside the mall, take care also when going out of the mall especially walking in crowded areas, dont put your purse at the back of your jeans, dont wear valuable jewelries, just make it simple even shorts and slippers is ok

The 'Tutuban Mall' in Manila is actually built on part of an old railway station near to the city centre - however the railway lines were cut back by a few hundred metres and a new station built to replace the old one some years ago and this shopping mall was built on the vacant space left by the railway...

with all the bargaining happening at the tutuban mall, i wonder if anybody notices the rehabilitated structure which used to be the tutuban station of the manila-dagupan line of the philippine national railways. i spent my childhood in manila, but i never saw -- nor appreciated -- this station until it was rehabilitated to become the tutuban center mall. it's...

Nothing to see much here (it is within Divisoria, you can't miss it). I would say it was dull and dry, haha. Most of the stuff are clothing, I find it boring. The good points, it is near the transportation areas, this is where most people can take a cab or jeep or train getting out of here. Though it... More

I arrived at this mall thanks to the crowded but quite reasonable Philippine National Railways diesel railcars that in recent years have arrived from South Korea. The mall was quite busy on the ground floor but not so on the upper floors. It was reasonable: not as good as Robinsons Place Ermjita, though. I bought some snacks which is all... More

We are currently staying in Manila for a few weeks and are desperately looking for things to do in the rain; sitting in cheap hotel rooms and watching Filipino TV can get pretty old. One of our solutions was to seek out Tutuban Mall. We would not usually bother to review malls but this one does boast one unusual feature:... More

Tutuban Mall was like the younger sibling of the big malls next door. The stalls around the entrance and the escalators were busy, but once you walked off a little way, the corridors were empty. I didn’t explore thoroughly, but it appeared that there was only clothing for sale, and most of that womans and childrens. It was worth a... More
