Shopping Areas

In the Philippines, there are many great places to shop but it all depends on what you intend to buy and your budget, of course.

For a great day of handicrafts shopping, you can check out the Ilalim ng Tulay market, next to Quinta Market on Carlo Palanca St, Quiapo or the variety of handicraft places at Nayong Pilipino (Philippine Village). If time do not permit you to go around the country, good souvenirs shopping can be done at SM departmental store at the Makati Commercial Center and Landmark on Makati Ave. The El Amanecer building at General Luna St. in Intramuros also house a few shops selling handicrafts. In this building, among the many popular shops are Silahis, which sells art and crafts, Chang Rong that sells antiques and Galeria de las Islas that sells paintings and sculpture. If you're looking for something unique such as handicrafts made by the ethnic minorities on Mindanao, you might want to visit T'boli Arts and Crafts on Mabini St., Ermita.

Apart from the smaller handicrafts' shops, the shopping haven of Philippines also offer great buys at big shopping centers. For moderately priced items, there is the Araneta Shopping Complex in Cubao. This shopping complex has 2,000 stores offering a wide variety of items for shoppers to choose from.
