Manila has a very well established shopping mall culture, a sure sign of the Philippines' American influence. The majority of high-end malls are located in the Greenbelt 4 and 5 at Ayala Centre and Bonifacio High Street in Bonifacio Global City. For a more affordable shopping spree, the Divisoria Market offers goods in bulk at very cheap prices.
Some goods that are of good value in the Philippines include intricate handicrafts, jewellery, home furnishings, embroidery and baskets. May of the products are made and sourced locally, such as silk and wooden products, and by buying them visitors support the local economy. Every island and every little town has a local market where craftsmen come and sell their products to the local population and tourists alike, making the Philippines a rewarding travel and shopping experience, wherever you choose to stay.
