Its very crowded and basically the same Ali express in every booth.
It was worth it though, it’s something that I don’t experience often.

I had a very bad experience while visiting the Divisoria market. The traffic to the market was horrible and taxi was unable to access the market due to over crowded with lot and lot of people in the market which became scary with security and safety.

Not much variety. Prefer the Ben than market. In Phillipines did not have any good shopping bargain places.

Hard to accurately describe the place as it is an assault on the senses. Visited solo in November and I was the only foreigner (in fact, all day in Manila I saw no visible Westerner (I'm Irish)). Being a clear westerner, I was frequently stared at (and hassled a bit).

Market is a mix of tacky cheap gear and weird smells. Would I visit again; no.

Do travel by LRT though - to D.Jose station and walk over as it's interesting walk

Bargain prices. This where the locals shop. We were the only white faces we saw there or surrounding market streets all day. Several locals we spoke to were surprised that we went there and not a more upmarket shopping choice such as Greenhills. No problems experienced but apparently it could be more dicey at night...

It a huge flea market with thousands of shops inside 4-5 plazas and outside on the street. I found some good bargain prices on clothes, shoes, handbags etc. the place is safe for tourists.

popular market in the street.

The kind of place where you wander w/o looking for something special but where you can always find something to buy.

If you want really cheap stuff in Manila, you head to Divisoria.
It's basically a whole suburb of shops and market stalls that sell retail, but at wholesale prices.
It's where Sari Sari store and shop owners from all over the Philippines go to buy in bulk.
The Grab driver told us to be careful and on the lookout for pick pockets.
We had nothing in our pockets and wore our backpacks in front.
We saw all sorts of interesting people, and some were really friendly (as the photos will show).
Very diverse and interesting place for sure.
Trying to get a Grab (Grab is like Uber) out of Divisoria was a battle.
Took over an hour of waiting in the heat and trying to find a car to take our booking.
Eventually we got a ride, and i asked the driver why the GPS wasn't picking up any cars in the area.
He said the drivers don't want to go there because it's too dangerous.
Maybe so, but here were 2 Aussies traipsing round the place, and judging by the inquisitive stares from the locals, we must have been standing out to the max, and we were never bothered, nor felt threatened.
Stop and chat to the locals, show respect, and it will come back to you tenfold.
Never saw a single solitary tourist the whole 3 hours or so we were there.
It was magnificent !

I did some reading from trip advisor before going for the trip. Despite the pandemic the place is busy. Everybody is wearing masks. Yeah, I went to Taboora Street and indeed found a lot of shops selling bottles. It is worth visiting each to have price comparison.
