This is part 3 of my Divisoria Guide Series, here are my part 1 and part 2.
If you view the map above, 999 mall, 168 mall and Lucky Chinatown Mall are just close to each other. There are other malls around Divisoria but these three are the ones I frequent due to their proximity.
City Place Square is part of Lucky Chinatown Mall and that is where Gold's Gym is located on the 2nd Flr.
LUCKY CHINATOWN MALL
The shops and restaurants inside are high-end. There's also Resorts World inside if you want to play some casino games but if you prefer to go to Resorts World Manila near NAIA Terminal 3, there are free shuttle buses located outside, leaving every 30 mins. A shuttle bus for Solaire is also available here. Metro Gaisano Supermarket is inside on the 1st and 2nd floor. It has also become my supermarket of choice when I'm looking for Asian and other International ingredients.
I also love to watch in their cinemas. They offer a very conducive atmosphere for viewing, intimate but not crowded, nice and guaranteed seats and modern interiors.
It's like stepping in a different place, not the usual Divisoria you have in mind. The newly opened Building B Annex of Lucky Chinatown houses wholesalers selling different stuffs similar to the kinds you'll find at 999 mall and 168 mall.
You can check my previous post on Lucky Chinatown Mall here.
168 Mall has become a favorite hangout for bargain hunters. It has expanded to serve more customers and offers more choices and varieties. Go check out their Soler Wing. Robinson Supermarket is on the basement.
I find their Bridal Section at the 4th Level more up to date compared to 999 mall. When my cousin from Canada asked me a favor to have her reception dress made here, this is where I had it done.
From a drawing to the finish product, I think they did well. Among the shops I checked, they offer the most reasonable price.
Bridal gowns here would range from 8,000 pesos to 30,000+ pesos depending on the design.
999 Mall has also expanded and now facing Recto St which makes it the most accessible among the malls I've mentioned. There's Puregold Supermarket on the basement and 3 more levels for more choices. A bridge on the 2nd floor connects it to the earlier 999 mall which makes walking more comfortable.
