Wow, this is THE place. I've never seen so much garlic. Or Okra. Or Tomatoes. Or what. You find there everything. In giant amounts. Unbelievable. Can be crowded, can be dirty, can be loud. But people still love joking. You should plan some hours to really see bigger parts of that market. Don't go there in slippers, wear real shoes... More

The market gives the real feeling of local culture and its people. It is crowded and complicated to move through, but worth the effort.

Hard to find items at low prices is the trend here. I was looking for items for an upcoming themed event and I was glad that I visited this place. I would recommend the stalls on the streets, it may be crowded and very hot, a little haggling with prices and you get your money's worth!

Cheap stuff everywhere you look! As a tourist, I'd recommend you go shopping in the streets instead of entering this crowded building (unless you want to be in an airconditioned building of course). In the streets the shopping is more fun and feels more authentic then in this overwhelming building.

After 5 years, I finally went to Divisoria to finish my Christmas shopping. I normally start buying gifts as early as September. I bought Php7,000 cash for shopping. Although, I had a list of items to buy but still have leeway for impulse buying. Along the sidewalk, I saw a stall selling “automatic” umbrella. Bought 1(which is part of my... More

Whenever I travel, I make it a point to visit a local market. I hope to see what the REAL culture and tradition of the place I visit, rather than going to the newest and most modern mall. I would also rather buy local handicraft, rather than high street shopping. I thought Divisoria market would fulfill my need to see/buy... More

This market sells mainly poor quality stuff, dangerous with thief's, I wouldn't recommend it unless you go with a local. Nothing like the picture shown here, it is dirty and smelly.

If you like a good bargain, head to Divisoria. Wear comfortable clothing that keeps you cool, leave the jewelry at home, look as common as possible, be smart, be safe, and bring a guide if you know someone. We would have gotten lost without our local guide who is also a friend of the family. We had a very specific... More
