Market close to Manila Airport. Opens early with lots of vendors selling good quality fake goods. Quite hot and dusty. A must place if you are in Manila for a short visit.

It's crowded; difficult to navigate; shabby and worn down. But an excellent experience of an eastern market. Beware of pick-pockets. But do not give it a miss.
