The Philippines is also a cheap place for different items... I'd say prices in the Philippines for clothes, furnitures, and some items are relatively cheaper than those in Malaysia... I've observed that during my trips to Penang and Kuala Lumpur...

It depends on the type of items. The cost of living in Philippines is lower and you're comparing with the two of the most expensive cities in Malaysia.

sorry to generalize Malaysia.. but that's just an observation... and yes it depends on the items...

@Djmillion... yup Divisoria is a dirty place mainly because of its overcrowdedness... but if you have a keen talent on haggling.. you'll get the best prices right there... and as I said.. just always be attentive of your valuables... since very crowded place can also be a place for pickpockets..

What can you guys say about Hong Kong ? Is it better than Vietnam or would you say Vietnam has cheaper items for sale ?

Depends on what you want to buy. For real branded clothes, Hong Kong is the place. For knock-off/clones of the actual branded clothes, Vietnam it is. Bear in mind that many branded clothing companies outsourced their manufacturing to textile factories in Vietnam. These factories sometimes produce the same stuff of the same design but without the logo of the actual brand and sell them for a much cheaper price.

Vietnam (and Thailand) is also the place to get tailor-made clothes of pretty good quality for very cheap prices. Many travellers who went there ended up sending several sets of clothes or suits back home by post.
