You can find just about anything in his area. Most of the vendors have been moved indoors to some buildings so if is raining then you should be ok. Warning..always know where the exits are as you can easily be lost in a maze. There is VERY little room in the aisle ways so be wary. Having said that, great... More

Wholesale and retail items are sold here. You can choose to buy inside the Chinese malls (like 999 or 168) or out on the streets ("bangketa"). Prices vary depending on the store and your haggling skills. Parking space is available anywhere, but the most convenient one is in the back of the 168 mall, a valet-type of parking wherein your...

If you're looking for AFFORDABLE THINGS. Then Divisoria is the perfect place. If you're really good at canvasing for lower prices then you will surely buy a LOT of goods here. Street foods are also found here and Malls are available if you're looking for other options.

I suppose most visitors go to buy the amazingly cheap knock-offs but the commerce in the busy street markets outside the malls is great people watching and exploring. I had several friendly, casual conversations with locals on the street (who were not trying to sell me anything). It's not a wealthy area.

Unlimited shopping at RIDICULOUSLY LOW LOW PRICES! After it got burned down a few years back- THE NEW DIVISORIA MARKET has been relabeled as DIVISORIA MALL. 3 floors of air conditioned bargain stalls bonanza, selling ladies accessories, children's toys and wares, shirts and jackets,houseware, plasticware and do-it-yourself hardware selections, flashlights and electrical gadgets too. The underground level houses the fresh... More

Popular with locals who want to stretch their hard earned pesos. You can buy almost everything in Divisoria. Divisoria now has evolved with the air-conditioned malls rising one after the other. Expect crowds especially on weekends. Be careful with your valuables since crooks abound. Parking can be a problem yet there are available parking in malls but the rates are... More

Yes, price here is negotiable and much less than non-divisoria malls. I was overwhelmed by the variety of stuff there. The place is comfortably cool. And the food court sanitation is okay. For US$2 you can have a filling meal. You can be confused and disoriented by the numerous stores. I had some difficulty in remembering the store location that... More

Wow!!! Divisoria is so much fun now since there are now malls and not just the sellers on the streets! More comfortable to shop now! But watch out for your bags and wallets!

I've been here many times, try to go early as it gets crowded fast. I think China dumps all it's seconds on this place, because even the locals say you ca only wear the clothes once before the seams come apart or some other mishap. Pick pockets abound and you really have to be aware when shopping here

I have always loved this place because of the cheap finds. I always have a list and a budget before I come here but I always overspend. There's that Divisoria charm that draws people from all walks of life - Filipino or not. As I walked the streets yesterday, I noticed the street vendors have lessened and the streets were... More
