Famous brands such as H&M are available in most shopping malls while luxury brands such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Hermes are found in malls of equal stature. However, what is every frugal shopper’s paradise is the number of flea markets available in every corner of Manila, the capital of the Philippines.

Most flea markets have everything you would need, from quality bags, shoes and apparel. This is a popular destination for people who are looking for cheap thrills or those that are interested in reselling. $10 will be able to buy you at least two shirts and a bag!

Midnight sales are also abundant in the country and are normally available during the Christmas season. You can get bargains for a wide variety of products. It also helps that there are charity bazaars going on the whole year round which are famous for designer items at affordable prices.
