CHANCE UPON A COMPETITIVE SHOPPING ARCADE

11 November 2020 Mayon St, Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines


Manila can be a daunting place to visit, but amongst the chaotic streets are hidden treasures waiting to be discovered for those who get their thrill in good finds. Dapitan Shopping Arcade is a quaint market district along Dapitan Street, hence the name.



It is a treasure trove for housewives and interior designers because of their quality but affordable items mostly overruns from prominent homeware and interior shops abroad. From wooden crates at ₱200.00- ₱600.00, to jewelry organizers of the same cost, tableware set, decorative items and ornaments, all reasonably priced compared to other retail stores.

Although, the prices are already marked down, haggling and making the right deal is still advisable in Dapitan Shopping Arcade. While you’re there, sample some Filipino street food. It could be a gastronomically delightful experience!
