Where the land meets the sea.
So little time so much to do!
In a nutshell
Truly a World Heritage!
I was looking for a canteen/carinderia near the vicinity of Miagao Church, but I couldn't find any. Across the street from Miagao Church, I saw a small pharmacy, a small bakery and a hardware/general merchandise store. I asked if they sold mineral water and Coke Zero. Fortunately, the pharmacy sold purified (not mineral) water so I bought 2 bottles from them. The general merchandise store sold Coke Zero. I bought one and was surprised to see that Coke Zero did not come in cans but in small bottles. I asked for 1, and the boy quickly poured the content of the bottle into a small plastic bag and put a straw....Anyhow, whichever way they served the drinks in Miagao stores, they surely quenched our thirst ;))
Oh, I also saw a sidewalk vendor selling bottles of mineral water!
What to pay: Sorry, I forgot how much was the Coke Zero, but the small bottle of purified water was P15 each.

Be engulfed by the variety of smells, sights and sounds in the Miagao market. Time your visit on a Saturday morning (the main market day of Miagao) and weave in and out of the bulanteros (vendors) and local consumers buying their food and other basic needs. To give you a sense of direction, focus on four things: 1) the fish section - the freshest of fish, learn the various names of fish 2) pottery from Cagbang - cooking vessels, water jugs and flowerpots from local clay 3) native rice cakes - check out especially the kalamay hati and baye-baye wrapped in banana leaf rectangles and 4) Patadyong - multi-colored handwoven fabric in plaid designs, an industry since pre-spanish times
When you're tired of shopping around, have home cooking Miagao-style at the Karan-an. If you're adventurous, look for that stall which offers goat stew (caldereta) and pig's blood stew (dinuguan). You'd be surprised and want for more.

Favorite thing: -If you will eat @ Doming's before going straight to Miag-ao to see the church, just hail a tricycle on the main road
-No need to take another jeepney ride since it will just take approx 8-10 minutes to reach the church from Doming's
-Php10/pax (Year 2011)
