    various items supposed to be 'native'.

    There are various shops that sells items that I think can be found in all the stores that carries native products in the country. They're just cheaper. I don't know who really make all those stuff, or if they do it, they need imagination to improve their products. It's the same mundane things you see everywhere.

    What to buy: You can go for jewelries or bags. The girl in the shop told me they have better threads than in Baguio or Sagada but then Sagada doesn't carry much knitted items.

    What to pay: P25-P500

    This shop's is on top of the hill. I took the opportunity to look at the shop's since the Jeepney that I get to Sagada is dropping us for a few minute to enjoy the sightseeing. They call it "Banaue View Point". I didnt climb up here during my stay in Banaue because I was totally exausted after done tracking 9 hours tracking.

    esther's handicrafts is the first souvenir store that's located along the road. But there are also several stores located near the viewpoint.

    What to buy: All souvenir stores in banaue sell t-shirts (P120-140 for white shirts), P150-250 for colored shirts...you can also buy other local unique handicrafts like wall decors, keychains, pens, food products (jam, cookies, etc made in Baguio)..better to haggle the prices to have discounts... My husband bought 3 wooden mugs with carved faces at the front for only P100.00.

    The cluster of souvenir shops at the Banaue Rice Terraces Viewdeck sells traditional Ifugao clothings for all ages.

    What to buy: The clothes are very colorful that my 8-yr-old son and 7-yr-old daughter wanted one set each with the respective headgears and accessories. The clothings impressed me as well.

    Why not buy them and anyway they could use it for that once-a-year national costume event in school. Much more, they really look cool.

    The shop owner gladly taught us how to wear them the right way.

    What to pay: Paid P1200 for the 2 sets.

    There are several local souvenir shops around Viewpoint. They sell items similar to the ones found at the Poblacion and almost at the same price.

    What makes them special? You have a view of the rice terraces and local residents dressed in native costumes while shopping. Also, the shops are built either along the road or at the edge of the mountain.

    What to buy: "I've been to Banaue" souvenir shirt.

    What to pay: A shirt costs P150 or more depending on the material used and the size.

    There are several souvenir shops adjacent to each other at the Poblacion. They sell similar items like, knitted blouses, wood crafts, woven fabrics, T-shirts, caps, etc.

    What to buy: I bought knitted blouses. Found they are made of better thread than the ones found in Baguio City.

    What to pay: One blouse originally costs P100, but after much haggling, it was reduced to P80.
