“nothing new except the chinese decors”

Lucky Chinatown Mall
Ranked #38 of 140 things to do in Manila
Attraction details
Reviewed April 20, 2014

i thought all the while, that this mall offers something new.. i saw none, except for the festive red chinese lanterns at the open space. i saw it very attractive in pictures, but when i saw the place , there are makeshift food stalls that makes the place messy , there is also a play area for children that makes the space a bit small. coming from the excruciating heat from outside ..it was a relief once i got inside,because the aircon is cold. but when i was able to look and get inside the stores, the price of the signature goods are quite higher than their competitors. the other building sells china made items..looks like ukay ukay...the supermarket , metro, sells goods also higher . there were shelves written from korea, china and / or asian. continuously the sounds that they play inside the supermarket is chinese..the food court also has few stalls. there are also popular restaurants inside that are pricey.. overall, i did not quite enjoy the mall. well, i went there for curiosity, now i know that its not the place for me.

Binondo and Divisoria is notorious for petty crimes with all the shoppers. But this mall is really a breath of fresh air in the tired and dirtiest area of the city. You won't feel like you're still in this part of Manila. It is not that huge compared to the adjacent malls but signature brands and fancy restaurants can be found here.

Lucky Chinatown or LCM as fondly called is a great alternative for Manila residents to go to. Parking is ample for those with own vehicles and it is accessible by taxi cabs, pedicabs and even jeepneys. There are many stores to shop from - whether signature brands or local brands. Eateries abound in the different levels. There are 4 theaters to watch movies from. Then there are usually different shows or interesting activities in this mall-like mini concerts (last week it was the Acer Choir singing Christmas carols as they promoted their products). The mall is not just for people but for pets too as dogs come in their "best attires" when coming here. The mall itself is not that big and spacious as other popular malls would boast of, but it has certainly maximized its space very well. Another plus point is its accessibility to Divisoria which is a well known haven for great bargains. Indeed, it's a great alternative to the bigger, noisier and more crowded malls.

The area of Binondo, Manila has always been a shopper’s paradise. However, the congestion and the lack of parking spaces had somehow deterred me and my family from frequenting the place. Lucky Chinatown Mall must have seen these difficulties so that it had allotted eight floors of parking spaces in its spacious and fully air-conditioned modern edifice. Their facilities and merchandises are comparable to those in upscale Makati. Residents in the area need not go elsewhere to dine or even to shop for fancier brands. Personally, there is one Chinese Restaurant that my family loves to patronize inside the mall. It is the King Chef Seafood Restaurant. Prices are reasonable and the food is truly delicious. Those in search for bargains can also opt to rummage through the flea markets located outside the mall. These are numerous and situated close to each other. Be prepared to haggle, though, since vendors almost always pad their prices in preparation for the negotiating game.
