Shopping is one of the prime activities in Manila – almost every city block or two of Metro Manila has a mall, each of which has a wide range of products by local and international brands. It’s also home to SM Megamall, one of the largest shopping malls in the world. The more upscale malls are located in Greenbelt 4 and 5 at Ayala Centre and Bonifacio High Street in Bonifacio Global City, where you can find world-renowned brands like Mango, Armani and Bulgari.

    To get a real feel for Manila, go to a tiangge (fresh market), where everything can be bargained for. One of the city’s busiest markets, Divisoria Market sells items in bulk at very attractive prices. Don’t forget to stock up on local snacks while you’re out shopping in Manila.
