If you need to buy gifts and other made in China items, this is your place to visit. Best to visit it on Sunday to avoid the crowd.

Dirty, ugly, stinky, and full of thieves., If you are from a developed country and never been to a 3rd world urban area then maybe this is worth a look. But do it at your own risk and if you carry a backpack, make it a frontpack and carry it across your chest. Do not accept any food/drinks from strangers.

Personally as a foreigner visiting Divisoria I dont think the goods sold here are that cheap. I would rather save myself the trouble of going here and buy at shopping centre. Having said that however every local I know believes it to be the cheapest place to buy anything. Whilst I can say some things may be cheaper, you often... More

There is lots to buy here. Be careful and be aware of your surroundings. Lots of theft do not travel alone, travel with a local. Many people are very surprised we went here as some filipinos will not even go here. You can find some good imitation stuff here. You need to barter and it is extremely tough as they... More

Heaps of different goods, be prepared to haggle as special price for foreigners, worth the visit if you enjoy markets, it is crowded and squeeze.

Went to "Divi", as Divisoria is fondly called, yesterday after about 5 years. There are atleast 4 buildings adjacent to each other. However, when you are looking for a specific item, it is such a waste of time to go to all buildings and compare prices before finally buying that particular item. With the exception of Lucky Chinatown (this is... More

This area takes some effort to get to and may be a little intimidating to some however I have yet to find anywhere else in Manila that is cheaper. It's hot, crowded and a pickpockets paradise so dress appropriately and take with you only what is necessary. Whenever we travel to Manila it is to visit family so we go... More

You gotta go here for the ultimate shopping experience in the Philippines. Very crowded and busy, was part of the charm. Despite being busy, everyone was still nice. Had many warnings of pick pockets. Tho I had no trouble, I was there three different times. Got some great bargins.
