Why 168 Shopping Mall is special ?

168 Shopping Mall is one of the most frequented establishments in Divisoria district. This 25,000 square meter, three-story complex attracts almost a little over 25,000 people on weekdays and 45,000 people on weekends. This is one among the several malls in the area which have numbers for their names. It is named as such, as the three numbers are said to be good luck in Chinese. The numbers are loosely translated into the phrases “Road to Prosperity” or “Continue being Prosperous.


In the past, a trip to Divisoria was never for the faint of heart. One had to brave the crowds, the heat of the sun, the tight alleyways and the dangers of pickpockets to get from one shop to the other. 168 Shopping Mall was one of the earliest establishments to institutionalize the whole Divisoria experience into one modern shopping complex, making it a safer, more comfortable and easier option for many shoppers. The mall draws people from all ages and walks of life – including local celebrities and even a former first lady of the country.

Tips for you

  • you have to bargain to buy anything there.
    Shopping
  • The Korean store without a name in the rotunda area of the third floor and by the restrooms. The bag stalls on the first floor.The shoe store by the ATMs on the third floor. You can go there.

    Service
  • They also have outlets of famous fast food restos like Chowking, Jollibee etc. 5.
    Food
  • Do not buy at the first level or at door entrances. They tend to raise the price higher than the mall itself.
    Experience
  • It's suggested that avoid the Christmas period because shopping there is like you are going to a mountain hiking and swimming marathon at the same time.
    Timming
  • Beware of pickpockets there. You should keep your personal belongings carefully.

Went to this place on a Sunday afternoon. It is a collection of shopping malls. It was absolutely packed...and I mean packed..got buffeted from pillar to post..lucky im built like a slightly firm giant teddy bear..if you are at all claustrophobic..forget it on the weekend..but if your up for a wild ride, whilst gripping your valuables (and that includes the locals)..then go there..good food stalls..some great smells..but remember, make sure to grow those eyes on the back of your head, and dont lose your cool.there is so much going on here, and its not a place for the faint or gullible.

This is where you can find the cheapest things in the whole metro. Prices are usually 50% to 70% cheaper than malls and department stores. And they have the exact same items most of the time! Tips for a stress free shopping experience:1. go early. this makes parking easier and lesser shoppers. you can park nearer to the mall entrance so that you can drop off your shopping goods when they get heavy. i think the mall opens around 9am but sometimes they open as early as 8am when Christmas season nears.2. wear comfy clothes and shoes.3. bring water, wet ones, ecobags and other essentials.4. use a "theft" proof techniques like keeping bags in front of you, not bringing out your cellphones, keeping money in different pockets, etc.5. haggle haggle haggle! prices go lower if you buy more! when they say "wholesale", it is usually 6 pcs.6. have early lunch to avoid the lunch mob.7. be wary of cheaper quality goods, most are imitations.8. if buying electronic stuff, maybe its best to ask for a receipt and warranty requirements.9. leave the kids at home if you plan to shop for a lot of itemsIt ts really a great place to shop for Christmas gifts esp if you plan to buy by bulk like for your kids' party loot bags, gifts for classmates, office personnel, teachers, etc.Some ideas of the prices:Christmas wrappers or gift bags. Wrappers are around P2, bags depend on the size and material. Nice korean notebooks and stationery (P40 to P70), Chinese red calendars (8x11-P12- P15 depending on quality and quantity), Plastic envelopes with disney designs (P25-P30), Markers, pens, signpens (P25-P50), Towels (P50-P100), Bath mat (P80-P150), Tote bags, shoe bags, mini backpack, messenger bags (P60, if its imitation of a brand P100), ladies accesories (P25-P70). I bought some ladies evening clutch at P100 only when the exact thing is being sold at a boutique store for P800.

a definite haven (or is it heaven) for bargain hunters like my mom -- to bad she loves to drag me along. this mall was built after we moved out of manila, but mom never forgot the great discounts to be had in divisoria. it seems like everything... and i mean everything! can be bought here, especially little trinkets for giveaways at christmas. if you're like my mom, you start shopping for christmas around january... yes, every time is a great time to shop for christmas, if there's a good bargain! or so she says. 168 is not for the faint of heart though... whether bargaining or walking, the only thing that will limit you is your budget and your capacity to walk its hallways.
