Baclaran

Baclaran

Taking its name from the word baklad, which is a rattan fence fishermen placed around their catch until they were ready to be sold, Baclaran has become more than just an area by the shore. Instead, it is one of the places in the metro that has become synonymous to cheap finds ranging from clothes and accessories to gadgets and toys. A definite adventure for anyone who wishes to journey to its streets, Baclaran is the one place where you can hone and practice your haggling skills and score good finds along the way.

The most popular landmark in Baclaran for those who haven’t memorized its streets by heart is the National Shrine of Our Mother of Perpetual Help. More commonly known as the Baclaran Church, its construction was finished in 1958 and is a famous destination for Marian devotees.

Baclaran is most known for its tiangge or flea markets selling a range of products. Their colorful stalls line the streets of Baclaran as vendors call your attention in hopes of enticing you to purchase what they have to offer. Those not fond of shopping under the heat of the sun can head to the Baclaran Supermall near the Baclaran LRT train station.

All that shopping will surely make you hungry. To go with the cheap finds at the flea markets or at the mall, many fast food options have set up shop all over Baclaran. Whether it’s the burgers of McDonald’s, chicken of Jollibee, KFC, or Mang Inasal, the comfort food of Max’s or the Chinese fare of Chowking, you’ll be able to satisfy your hunger before heading back out in the streets again for another round of shopping.
