Looking for the best place to score cheap clothing finds with impressive quality, but hates having to make way through a huge crowd? Well, say hello to Taytay Tiangge, the better version of Divisoria in Taytay, Rizal!
Yes, it is a big statement to claim that Taytay Tiangge is far better than Divisoria, but don’t get confused as it only is better in terms of their garments. Unlike Divisoria which is a one-stop shop that has everything from home to office or school supplies, and even makeup or clothing apparel, Taytay Tiangge merely offers clothes – cheap and quality clothes to be exact. Now, that is something, isn’t it?
Dubbed as the Garments Capital of the Philippines, it is not a surprise that Taytay is a haven for fashionistas and garment-lovers out there. According to blogger/vlogger Ayn Bernos of Sun-kissed Somewhere, you can get clothes for half the price of those being sold in Divi or Greenhills, and more interestingly, most of it are not only produced, but are also designed by the locals in the area.
If you’re curious to see what Taytay Tiangge can truly offer and if it is worth the hype, then let this video speak for itself:

Let’s face it, trendy clothes these days cost a lot especially branded ones. Even online shops offer unreasonable prices for unbranded apparel. If not for places such as Quiapo, Baclaran, Divisoria, Greenhills, and Taytay Tiangge, a small budget definitely won’t go anywhere.
So, what are you waiting for? Time to make your way to Taytay for some clothes hoarding action!
