Taytay, Rizal, is a Manila suburb. Our town is known for being the garment capital of the Philippines. That title brings both positive and negative impacts here. On the positive note, lots of people from different parts of the country troop to our town to buy clothes and other garment-based products at a very affordable price. Most buyers are resellers who have businesses in downtown Manila. The drawback is that due to the large volume of people, sometimes traffic could be horrendous.
