“Beware of the guys...in disguise!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Beware of guys in disguise! There were a lot of very strange looking women there...something seemed off. After hearing them speak and taking another look at them, many of the women working at 168 Mall were men. Many.

168 Mall is known for the value. Meaning, everything is made of poor quality or an imitation of a respectable product. For full stories of my trip, search for the Danger Avoider blog.

“Try the foodcourt”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

I rarely shop here but after a tiring day of shopping around the streets of divisoria, I come here for refreshments. The food court offers a variety of dishes (Chinese and Filipino). They also have outlets of famous fast food restos like Chowking, Jollibee etc.

“Bargain”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

divisoria is a haven for bargain shoppers, but if you prefer to hunt for bargain items in an air-conditioned area then 168 mall is for you

it has everything from clothes, shoes, bags, luggage’s, accessories, electronic items, bed and bathroom stuff, decorative items for your home and many more. The mall has eating area with a wide choice for food, atm machines is also available if in case you’ll be needing additional cash. Just avoid going to this place during weekend as it gets crowdy

“Cheaper than Greenhills”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

there are some nice little boutique stores within the mall. lots of small stall selling everything. It is cheaper than Green hills. Could be any other market in any other country. Clean, has toilets and restaurants. really friendly stall holders, good for a laugh. After reading the previous reviews, kept watch for pickpockets. Had no issues, didn't see anyone to be suspect of.

“Great Shopping”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

This is a huge place full of hundreds of tiny stalls selling many different kinds of things. Bargaining is a must. Amazing prices, even if you can't bargain very well. Pluses, amazing variety, great prices. Negatives, is crowded, difficult to find things. Bring money, exit with arms full of bargains!
