If Manila is famous for one thing, it would be the extensive range of markets, thrift stores, and bargain shopping centers. Its streets are literally teeming with vendors and merchants selling all kinds of stuff to all sorts of people. It’s a good thing too; aside from selling everything from the common to the rarest, they also sell them at a cheaper price compared to larger supermarkets and malls. This is what makes Manila truly unique.

If you’re one with the crowd who believes shopping shouldn’t be too hard on the wallet, then it shouldn’t be a drag for you to roam the streets of Manila. From choosing your next set of wardrobe, to scoring a rare find that you’ve been looking for all your life, you’ll be surprised as to what you can buy with a limited budget. Clothes, bags, trinkets, accessories, gifts—everything is literally within your reach. So get your walking shoes ready and see for yourself the best bargain stores Metro Manila houses!

What makes Chapter IX Bookstore a wanted destination for bookworms is that they sell book titles at a fraction of a price compared to giant bookstore brands. It hardly matters that these books are sometimes secondhand, because the genres are impressive nonetheless. They have titles under fiction, non-fiction, poetry, literary classics, and other classifications, priced from PhP79 and up. Aside from having a physical shop, buyers can also browse their selections online and have the books shipped directly to their doorsteps at a fee.




2. Dangwa Flower Market

Location: 1506 Dos Castillas Street, Sampaloc, Manila

Eunice Sheene Fulgencio

Eunice has been writing short stories and poems for as long as she can remember. An introvert by nature, she prefers to invest her time in people and passions that fulfill her rather than drain her. Prefers to binge-watch 80’s movies and 90’s sitcoms to anything current and believes that in another life, she lived in the 50’s and loved it. Wants her words to be read but her ultimate aspiration is to publish her own book.
