Divisoria Night Market, Cagayan De Oro

After our Camiguin Day tour, we got back in Cagayan De Oro in time to enjoy the Divisoria Night Market. We were also able to explore the night market after our white water rafting and  zipline adventure.  This is indeed a great part of our 4D3N itinerary in Mindanao.

After taking some pictures at the monuments there and having dinner at Chowking, we settled to rest our feet with some cheap massage. I didnt feel like having a massage so I just ended up reading the inscriptions at the numerous monuments.
There are lots of therapists in the plaza offering this service. You can have a body massage for P75 and a foot massage for P50.
My husband was in heaven because his feet were so tired after a day and a half of adventure in Camiguin. He loves his massage! And it was so cheap too!
The following Friday night that we were in the night market, the plaza was closed and the place was full!  
There were lots of food stalls and tables and there was even a live band playing.  We had dinner at one of the stalls here to celebrate our friends birthday. 
After dinner, we left the guys to nurse their beers and check out the Ukay-ukay market.  There were so many stalss selling cheap second wares such as jackets, bags and clothes, and even curtains and bed covers. 
We also enjoyed the fruits sold at low prices, way cheaper than in Manila! I think I finished almost a kilo of Mangosteen.
 I even bought and brought some home, which was why we had to pay for excess baggage at the airport.
Next time you go to Cagayan de Oro, make sure to schedule it on a weekend because the night market is on Friday and Saturday night. We were lucky to be able to be there on a Friday and our hotel was just in the area. There are really cheap and great finds, and great food too!
