What to know about Taytay Tiangge?
Taytay Tiangge is one of the most visited clothing markets in the country. It is situated in the municipality of Taytay, Rizal, known for being the “Garments Capital of the Philippines.”
As Taytay is known for having an abundance of garment manufacturers, the Taytay Tiangge became its center for the trade of textile products and garments. It is known to offer the best clothing bargain deals in the country. Therefore, it attracts a flock of local and visiting fashionista bargain-hunters and entrepreneurs looking to score the best deals.
However, Taytay Tiangge may be an overwhelming place to visit, especially for first-time visitors. With its plentiful shops and wide plots it occupies, walking out of the place guarantees you coming home sore-footed. But don’t you worry, we’ll get your worries solved!
Here are some Taytay travel essential tips for you to remember:
Bring your own eco bags!
If there’s one thing true about Taytay Tiangge, that is regardless of your budget, you’ll never come home empty-handed. Most likely, you’ll get to take home several clothing pieces to add to your wardrobe. But as most stores place their sold items in plastic bags, the number of items you buy comes with several plastic bags you carry. Therefore, make sure to bring your own eco bags for both you’re convenience and for the sake of a plastic-less environment.
Beat the heat with a portable fan, towel, and a bottle of water
Like all other travels around the country, we have to face head-on the hot and humid climate of the Philippines. And with volumes of people also looking to score the best deals, you’re surely in for a sweaty day. So to keep yourselves cool and hydrated, do not forget to carry the basic beat-the-heat essentials with you. These include a fan, some towels, and a water bottle to keep yourself fresh and hydrated. Although the Tiangge centers have roofs, you can also consider bringing your own umbrella to protect yourself from the rain.
Wearing your mask is a must!
Since we’re still in a pandemic, it is important to ensure practicing the basic health and safety protocols. By religiously wearing your masks in public places, you get to prevent the spread of the Corona Virus. This, in turn, helps protect others from possibly catching the infectious disease. So be mindful, and never forget to wear your masks!
Don’t forget to carry enough patience!
If you really want to get the best deals around Taytay Tiangge, I suggest that you be patient. Some stores sell the same items but at different prices. So if you want to get the most out of your budget, better take the time to look around first to compare the prices.
