This area is known for great bargains. Very crowded most days and like most busy market areas, riddled by petty crime. Street kids, prostitutes, drug pushers, mingle with the thousands of shop owners and side walk venders, 90% all lacking permits or control. You could buy most anything here, even double dead pork, fine fake Rolex from China, pirated CDs from the Muslims. The fact is true that also you can find some real bargains and hard to get items here. Don't ask anyone, just look yourself, it's better that way. Hard to get a taxi and the sidewalks are uneven, so be prepared for an adventure. TIP: Remove all jewelery, and watches, keep your purse at home, don't bring out your cell phone unless it is to call the police, go in small groups with a couple of big men included. It's more fun in the Philippines.
