"Tiangge" pronounced CHang-Ge is a Filipino term for market or a place with small stores selling a variety of items. Greenhills is known as the Tiangge capital of the Philippines & is the perfect spot for people searching for high quality export & imported goods at cheaper prices. The 16-hectare Greenhills Shopping Center, is known as a bargain haven. It houses thousands of stalls selling shoes, bags, jewelries, garments, furnitures, decors, local delicacies, toys, gadgets & accessories.

I am a medical doctor by profession as well as an Airbnb host who loves to shop & entertain whenever I have guests & free time. The Greenhills neighborhood is where I grew up in and I’ve witnessed it evolve from a small shopping complex to a lifestyle destination complete with thousands of small shops, restaurants, cinemas & residences. I’d love to take you around this place I call home-it is a hidden gem that you won’t just find in any travel guide, but a place where true locals go to. I've been going to Greenhills Shopping Center more commonly known as the "tiangge" for 25 years. There are so many stalls so it's easy to get lost but don't fret! I am a born shopper so if you're looking for a specific item, I'll make sure you don't get charged higher foreigner rates & help you find where to buy it at the cheapest & lowest price!

Where you'll be
We will meet in front of Starbucks-Greenhills Theatre where I will give you a brief history of the area. I will ask for your shopping lists & then we will start our journey into a maze of over 2,000 shops with AIRCON where I will guide you, haggle for you and help you find items that you are looking for. Afterwards, we will enjoy a snack at a popular snack bar which has been a staple in the Greenhills shopping center since it opened in the 1970's
