“Iconic representation of Asian markets”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

I love walking through areas like these. It is located in Chinatown and epitomizing the multitudes of markets I have seen like this in Hong Kong and Taiwan. You can buy anything you ever imagined. Or, you can just have a casual stroll. There is more to the market than just on the street level. If you go inside the large market style buildings, you'll see additional stalls of all types of goods. Beware of your belongings here though. My local guide told me that his cousin's bag was slashed not too long before we came. So hold your bags in front of you!

“The Revival of Divisoria as a Wholesale Mecca of Shopaholics”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

Divisoria has been a shopping place for decades for housewives and mothers and bargain hunters. Especially before school openings or near the Christmas season, shoppers from all over the country, from the far-flung provinces and from all parts of Metro-Manila will travel for days or hours just to get to Divisoria, the center for wholesale shopping. Before, it was quite an ordeal since one cannot find a decent parking slot since most parking are on the street with boys asking for parking fees. Today, one can park at 999 basement parking and if you come at 9:00 a.m., the basement is empty. DV as the commoner calls it has now been transformed into a mall destination for many shoppers. There is the famous 168, 888 and 999 which are modern four-storey modern building offering a variety of consumer products, from cosmetics, hair accessories, hardware and kitchen stuff to baby dresses, jeans, leggings, blue jeans and a whole gamut of things. One holiday, a friend and I went to DV and after parking at 999 we sauntered in all the nearby malls...168, Lucky Chinatown, 999. We even walked to Ylaya street, where one will find curtains, clothing materials and shorts and tee's. After three hours, our aching feet told us it is time to go. When we got back the whole basement parking was full and the shoppers have started to come in late morning. For the serious shopper who wants to avoid crowds and the hassles and bustle of crowded malls and streets, you have to go early and leave DV just before lunch.

“Divisoria Mall Market got burn down last 2013”
Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

I need to inform that Divisoria Mall and market got burned down last 2013. As of now demolition and clearing operations busy the area.
Do visit 168 mall or 999 mall instead or the upscale Luckychinatown mall all these are just walking distance from the burned establishment
