If you're a local then you won't worry about the language barrier. It's really a great place to buy a lot of things. I think they have everything here. Well, probably not high quality clothes though but I'm sure there are. You just need to look harder. I usually go here for party decorations. Everything is here. Plus you can... More

Good place to shop for souvenir, you can find almost everything, can bargain but not much. most of the people shop here are local. Easy to get lost, take all day and still can't finish, I don't think anyone that come to this market and come out with empty hand. if you take taxi to this market they always ask... More

A great place to shop, away from the mega malls.You can still get bargains here, also lots of copy items, say Samsung 7 edge copy for 4000 peso, don't know if it would work.Huge amounts of people, do not go to any mall on Sat or Sunday, it will drive you crazy

This side of Manila will blow your mind away with how busy it is. You think you've seen the buzz of the city? Well this place which has everything you need for a cheap price is the busiest part of the city.

I shop here everytime i visit the philippines. Its crowded but you can buy alot of things n most of all bargain with the sales person. They sell so many things to clothes shoes to military gear and more. They have diffrent malls as well and stores outside in the streets. Its cheaper to shop outside than inside

You either love it or you hate it. I personally liked it but in small dozes. Its overcrowded and very manic. Jeepneys and tricycles making their way through the center of the stalls. But it is a great place to buy Christmas decorations, any gadgets for your phone, housewares, and even pajamas for kids. There is also an indoor market... More

I last visited the market decades ago and have never forgotten it. It has changed a lot but still has some of the best prices for electronics, shoes, and purses. Even better than I fund in Hong Kong. We took a taxi from the outside the cruise port for about 300 Philippine pesos - if you get a taxi within... More

A Filipino friend took us to Divisoria. Holy cow!!! You can get anything you want. I don't think I would venture there alone, but it is definitely a place to see.

Yes you are gonna find lots of cheap stuff here and great bargains but I think this area is too clustered and the market are very hot and sticky. Hold your bag in front you are always being advised. People are always bumping into you here and It's too much of a hassle. I still prefer mall 168 and 999... More

Another spot I would recommend having a Local keep you safe. Military checkpoints, Snatchers. If you don't look like a local you will be wearing a bullseye. Keep wallet in front pocket. $10 Jordan's, $2 t-shirts hot off the back room press. One of the most thrilling, awesome experiences. The area is no joke though. Be smart.
