D ivisoria is known as the central all-around market and one-stop shop in the Philippines. Situated at the heart of the capital, Manila, it is big and chaotic flee market. Divisoria has been known for its retail and wholesale stores, midnight bazaars, street markets, shopping malls and food stalls that offer items at low, low prices, at times as low as few pesos. With items ranging from housewares, clothing, shoes, dry and wet goods, fabrics, and anything one can think of.

As I was there in late November it was a “heroic” effort to negotiate the traffic and the sea of humanity all trying to get goods for the Christmas season. Am I happy to have visited the market? Definitely YES!!! It is so colorful, vivacious and a real Filipino experience.
