To get a true taste of Filipino business culture, there’s nothing like taking a look at one of the oldest and most vibrant financial districts in Manila.

The Philippines’ Chinatown, otherwise known as Binondo, has long been a thriving commercial center, since the time of the Spanish colonization.  Just a stone’s throw away from Intramuros, this business hub literally has everything for any aspiring or seasoned entrepreneur.

Something for every entrepreneur
Binondo’s streets, as many entrepreneurs may already be well familiar with, teem with specialty shops and supply stores, from hardware, textiles, food, office and paper supplies, medicines, furniture, electronics, jewelry, amonth others, generally located along particular zones.

For those who haven’t been to Binondo, though, it’s fairly easy to find whatever it is you’re looking for. For instance, if you’re looking for gadgets, then head to Raon. Craving for some Chinese food? You have endless restaurants and pastry shops to choose from, from the infamous Eng Bee Tin bakery, Savory Chicken, DEC and more, scattered all throughout the area, from Ongpin to Buenavidez.
