Shopping Mall
“Recommended with caution because you could either love or hate this place. It's a building filled with stalls, shops selling literally anything and everything. These stalls supply stores and do sell in volume so it can be chaotic as other businesses come here to source for goods. Bring cash and your best negotiation skills. You don't have to buy in bulk but always ask for a discount! ”

Shopping Mall
“If you are looking for bargains, like clothes, shoes, etc, you can visit Tutuban Mall in Divisoria. This is where the locals shop when they are in a budget. You can haggle with the vendors as prices here are always negotiable. But be ready to squeeze through the crowd as this is a very crowded place specially during the month of December as this is also where many locals shop for their Christmas gifts. Also, you have to be very mindful of your personal belongings at all times, since this is a crowded place, it also attract pickpockets.”

“You might want to visit 'Divisoria' for that bargain shopping. Go to 168 mall or 999 mall for super cheap items. Lucky Chinatown Mall is more high-end than the 2 (with regular mall prices). This area is in Chinatown or what we call 'Binondo' and there are lots of good Chinese restaurants around as well.”

History Museum
“Escolta in its heyday was a bustling, shopping mecca likened to Fifth Avenue of NYC and Orchard Road of Singapore. Today, the famous street is slowly being brought back to life, first with the restoration of First United Building where you can find a culture market, cafes, barbershop, co-working studios, and more. Once you are in the area, you can easily walk to Chinatown where there are plenty of good eats. Bakeries - Salazar, Holand and Eng Bee Tin Dimsum - President's Grand Palace and Wai Ying Lunch - Ang Tunay Beef House and Cosmo's Snacks - Quik Snack, Sincerity and Chuan Kee”
