cheap, chaos, love it

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... read more

Baclaran Market is a jam packed area of small shops and vendors that sprawl into the streets and cover the sidewalks. You can indeed get bargains here, mostly for everyday items and clothes, but you have to bargain hard and put up with the hot, crowded, chaotic conditions. Just to walk through the market can be a major challenge as... More

stay away very chaotic and dirty and so much visible rampant corruption from local government and police ( actually witnessed these myself). people spit on the street all the time, all kind of plastic litter everywhere. there is no order, vendors with small item will plop right on the center where people are walking creating a small barrier that you...

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
