Very contemporary mall with a lot of really nice stores. Variety is great. Security is superb. Parking is tight, but the red and green lights above each parking space male it easy to identify open parking spaces. Must visit mall near attractions.

I had a wonderful time when I went to Tutuban Mall . Most of the goods are made in China. One must haggle for a good price. Parking is hard to come by. Come Sept to December, parking is impossible . I checked out Michelle's Ribbon and Lace store to buy a dressmaker's mannequin for my daughter's project .

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...

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
