I shopped until I dropped, heaps of bargain for my Christmas presents last November 2014. Rather than shop to Mall of Asia, went to Divisoria instead. After shopping we had our dinner at one of well known Chinese Restaurant, great food excellent services. My family seems to know where's the best restaurant to eat after shopping at Divisoria. I'm a... More

You can buy almost anything here, just beware of the quality of your purchase. Recommend purchasing from indoor shops versus street stalls. Carry your valuables in front pockets if at all possible, very crowded with a lot of bumping at times.

My local friends strongly advised me not to go there for safety reasons. I went with company and I did not have any problems. People go there to buy things cheap. From household items to meats, fish and vegetables. One sees exotic fruit and dry fish, beyond the usual open market stuff that most non locals are familiar with. The... More

Wow! All I wanted to do was get out it was so crowded in the 168 mall. The bargains are fantastic, but the shops are squeezed in tight and the isles narrow. Watch your wallet and any valuables every minute. Make sure you leave before dark as it gets a little scary on the streets there once the sun goes... More

When it comes to give aways, the number one place to go that comes to our mind is Tabora St. In divisoria. In the said street, you will be able to find different types of bottles depending on tour needs, baking and cooking utensils and of course pre-made give aways. However due to checking for a cheaper price, i tend... More

Divisoria is the chaotic market area for the masses of Manila. Great bargains, especially if you buy in bulk and are good in bargaining. But, as it's crowded and confusing, it's a perfect working area for pickpockets and bag snatchers. Also not easy to get to as traffic is heavy and constantly jammed there. Only go if you're looking for... More

Not exactly next door, it took us about 1 hour to get there by public transport. It must be one of manila's favorite haunts for pickpockets and snatch thieves, but we fortunately encountered no problems. I would however not walk with my iphone or wallet in my hand or take out my iphone/smartphone or camera for snapshots too often. Other... More

This is a strange market with almost everything that can be produced in China. Very cheap prices but when I told locals that as a tourist I went there they shuddered. It is very difficult to catch a cab to get out of the place as it can be a no go area for taxis as they will switch of... More

Its a massive flea market where you can buy anything in bulk. Don't expect designer stuff unless you are aimining imitations. Worth a trip if you have half a day to spare. But there are so many interesting things to do in Manila- this will be last on my list.
