Divisoria is a district in Manila and is without a doubt the city’s premier place for bargain hunters. The wholesale/retail market of Divisoria is crowded with shops selling clothes, fabrics, toys, kitchen ware, home décor and almost everything else.
A point of interest is the Tutuban Centre Mall in the heart of Divisoria. The former train station was converted into a commercial mall with the original wrought-iron columns and lattice work, and red brick masonry, giving the place a unique and nostalgic feel of late 19th century life in Old Manila.
Bargain hunters should not miss Divisoria’s textile shops where one gets value for money. There is a colorful night market where one can find anything from fruits to toys. Haggling is a sport in this shopping district and visitors are well advised to first scout for the most attractive price before making a final purchase.
Long live Divisioria!
