Cagsawa Park Shopping Grounds: Souvenirs
Several souvenir shops can be found in the park offering various souvenir items and native products made from indigenous materials like abaca.
What to buy: You can buy bags, mats, t-shirts,handicrafts and even pili delicacies. We bought some t-shirts. The bags were more expensive than those we bought from Tabaco shops. I also saw exotic flowers and orchids on sale, but I didn't buy any because I might encounter problems in transporting them.
You can also buy refreshments (bottled water, soda, juices,etc)
What to pay: t-shirts - the price range is from P100 for kids to P250 for adults XXL.

Kids: Cagsawa Postcards
What to buy: Postcards and pictures...especially that of Mayon with flowing lava. From experience, I was not able to get a good photo using my ordinary digital camera.
Buy those from the kids inside the Cagsawa National Park. The children is very persistent but come to think of it, they only get small commisions for their cards and the prices do not differ from the official shops outside. Buy some and let them earn some school money.
What to pay: The price is standard and they even give discounts when you buy several pieces.
