Wet Markets: shopping in the local area
the olongapo market is cornucopia of anything and everything. you got the usual fake clothes and native items. but then you get the abundant amount of fresh seafood and vegetables. wandering around the market can be challenging and fun at the same time. everyone calls you out to buy there wares but just seeing all the "stuff" was interesting.
What to pay: you can haggle for the price. if you are an obvious foreigner, or a filipino who cant speak the language (me). never go for the first price. fortunately we were with family friends who did the talking for us
What to buy: Although one can buy many tourist items and souvenirs in Olongapo, for real shopping treasures visitors are advised to shop in Manila or a similar large city either before or after their stay in the Olongapo area as prices and variety tend to be better. If however you will only have time to shop in Olongapo itself, you are sure to find something to take home as a memory of your wonderful holiday in this interesting spot
Rocker 'n Clothes
The owner of this Rocker Bootique is my friend Pat's buddy. They sell all kinds of t-shirts like that, bags, rocker cd's etc. There's no other color except 'BLACK', They hang it outside of the store and some they clip it inside. Well, its not really big boutique. It something like a rent small space and they put all their sell clothes. So, you dont need to take a walk for looking something. All you need to do is to stand up at the middle and look for best clothes you want to buy.Thats what i do everytime i go in Olongapo City Mall, and dropping by at this boutique to look for new things..
What to buy: Lots of clothes here. "cheap one".. If you're into rocker clothes, punky one or what so ever. You can find it here. This mall is not big so just walk around.
What to pay: If you wahve 1,000 pesos (20$) you can buy much cheap clothes for that. But if you want just to buy a black shirt with nice print? For 20$ you will have 4 shirts already.Related to:
