What are the products you should buy in Manila and why?

Hello everyone! I’m so excited to share my thoughts on the products you should buy in Manila. You can find anything your heart desires here, and all for a low price too! Whether you’re looking for clothes, electronics, or souvenirs from around the Philippines; Manila has it all. There are also plenty of stores that offer tax-free shopping which is perfect if you plan on doing some major shopping while you’re in town. The mall scene is the best way to go if you’re looking for a day full of retail therapy with your friends or family members.  I recommend walking around and window shopping for a while before you decide which stores to go into. The mall is huge so the first time can be overwhelming, but once you get used to it everything will seem much more manageable.

The following are some products I highly suggest checking out when in Manila:


If your style leans towards different cultures and styles, then Manila is the place to be for you. There are a number of stores that sell traditional Filipino clothing and accessories like jewelry, bags, shoes, etc.


The best dress in town is found at Anne Curtis’ boutique called “Anne Marie”. Her store offers dresses from different designers all over the world which means you’re like looking at the world when you are in her store.

Sports equipment

Filipinos are known as being sports fans so different sports equipment is available in Manila. You can get a variety of sports with a few clicks on the internet or just by walking around a store that specializes in a particular sport. If you traveled to Manila with your loved ones, ensure to buy a product that shows great craftmanship while being fun, such as foosball. Another game I recommend is table tennis. Knowing how to play the game isn’t necessary before buying it since it isn’t hard to play.



Buying souvenirs is a must when you are a tourist. But a lot of souvenirs are made in china and a lot can find duplicate items. The Philippines is a country with a rich culture so there should be products that you can buy as gifts for your friends or family back home. If you’re looking for something traditional, some stores might sell them but it’s best to ask the locals.

Electronics and gadgets

If you want electronics you should go to Greenhills because a lot of stores sell a wide variety. You should go to a shop where they have a lot of different products because they offer competitive prices on their gadgets. Some shops might only carry one or two brands and it can be difficult to find the product you want.


Shoes And Bags

Buying shoes and bags in Manila is a bit difficult because a lot of the stores carry a very limited and curated selection. It might be best to go on a tour or ask locals for recommendations so that you can find a store with good prices and an extensive inventory. There are lots of stores that sell handbags as well as clothing brands like H&M and Zara that have more affordable prices than they do in other countries.

After shopping it is always a good treat to eat a hearty meal in a restaurant. Manila’s cuisine is a mix of different cultures with influences from all over East and Southeast Asia. The best way to find a good place for food is by asking locals because they are the ones that know where it’s at!
