Shop till you drop. Bring a bigger bag for the things you are going to buy. Bargain for the price. Ask for wholesale price, it's cheaper. Avoid going when it's raining. The place is dirty, but hey, it's a market.

A local Filipino friend brought us to this market. Love this place. I can get very cheap stuff there compare to those big malls. Bargains is a must there especially when they see that you are a tourist.

Baclaran market is always been the 2nd mecca for bargain goods if you are in the south (Divisoria market being the No.1). The place is awfully dirty whether in the rainy season or summer season. But you can't go wrong in finding almost everything you want and need when it comes to clothes, shoes, gadgets galore, etc and if you... More

Baclaran is one of my favorite places. For one, the famous Redemptorist church is here. Did you know that the church helps urban poor communities? It does! That makes this church special for me. Second, this is one place that reminds me how hard-working Filipinos are - and how creative they can be in trying to earn clean living. You... More

Wild! So much to see, so many people. Dirty, noisy and colourful. Cheap? Who can say?? It's a short jeepney ride from central Manila.

You can take a bus from the airport to Baclaran and enjoy shopping in the open air market. I tasted a Filipino bizarre food balot, duck egg just before it would be born.

Caught a jeepney along quino street to here. The market is huge and spreads out everywhere. I always carry a shoulder that covers my pocket where my wallet is. Then I have my phone in other pocket and put my hand in that pocket. My wallet is connected to my shorts via a chain. If I ever feel anyone walking... More

I went here not too long ago, it's a good place for bargains and it's better if you can blend in as a local. If that can't be helped and you stand out like a tourist in the crowd - be prepared to have people snatch or pick pocket. There is too many small alleys and places to run after... More

There’s a lot of stores here where you can purchase cheap items like clothes, shoes, school supplies and different items. You need to take care of you belongings especially your money because pickpockets are everywhere. If you are planning to go to this aree I could suggest not to bring you important things like gadgets, jewelries or important documents.

This place is the same with Divisoria, you can see many items here from children, ladies and men accessories, school supplies, and many more items. You should know how to ask discount so that you can maximize your budget. The place is near Baclaran church which is the common landmark. There are some snatchers in this are so you should... More
