Everyone loves a good bargain -- whether you're frugal or you love to splurge, no one could say no to beautiful pieces at reasonable prices, and every seasoned shopper knows these can be found in Divisoria. However, shopping in this spot can be a little tricky. Aside from being ready to brave the crowds and face sweltering heat, here's how to prepare for a trip this weekend:
Make sure to dress down and bring only the essentials. The goal is to look “normal” in order to afford more haggling privileges.
Anticipate a lot of walking; wear comfy and waterproof flats. Remember that most streets in Divisoria can easily turn into a mud party when it rains. Bring a small umbrella as well.
Tote a small shoulder or belt bag with closures where you can stash your cash (don’t put all in your wallet). Swing the bag in front of you at all times, and avoid fumbling at it while walking. It’ll make you look distracted and thus, an easy target for pickpockets. Bring a foldable canvas tote for your purchases.
