I love walking through areas like these. It is located in Chinatown and epitomizing the multitudes of markets I have seen like this in Hong Kong and Taiwan. You can buy anything you ever imagined. Or, you can just have a casual stroll. There is more to the market than just on the street level. If you go inside the... More

Divisoria has been a shopping place for decades for housewives and mothers and bargain hunters. Especially before school openings or near the Christmas season, shoppers from all over the country, from the far-flung provinces and from all parts of Metro-Manila will travel for days or hours just to get to Divisoria, the center for wholesale shopping. Before, it was quite... More

This is a place people should visit if you are looking for bargains on clothes shoes and bags etc. the market is airconditioned so you wont feel hot and the food court has plenty of variety to choose from.

I need to inform that Divisoria Mall and market got burned down last 2013. As of now demolition and clearing operations busy the area. Do visit 168 mall or 999 mall instead or the upscale Luckychinatown mall all these are just walking distance from the burned establishment

It's still 5am but I'm now preparing to go to Divisoria to catch the 6-7am flea market at Recto fronting Azcarraga Textile market. Honestly, I love to shop for the pre-owned items which are sold along the middle street of Recto divisoria. Just make sure that you make a thorough scrutiny of what you are buying. Remember, not all items... More

I visited this place about 10 years ago, when it was dark and shady looking, but was told that it had a fire and was rebuilt. It wasn't at all as I remembered it. The new place is brighter and cleaner and full of great shopping bargains, and the best part is, that you can even bargain the prices! My... More
