Puerto Princesa City Shopping

  • Shopping While Helping Prisoners'...

    The Iwahig Penal Colony Souvenir Store offers products handcrafted by the prisoners. The store is manned by minimum security prisoners. I was amused at how well they conducted themselves as sales staff; they talked articulately about their products' unique qualities. Most of the items sold here are not available at other souvenir stores.If I...

  • Good Quality Goods & Souvenir Items

    Baker's Hill has a bakery where you can buy breads and pastries in boxes as "pasalubong". They also have a souvenir store where you can buy good quality souvenir t-shirts, board shorts, etc. The price might be costlier than other shops, but its real value for money. P300 up

  • Non-aircon Stalls

    Tiangge-Tiangge is a non-aircon area where you can choose from a cluster of stalls selling souvenir and "pasalubong" items. It is not necessarily a cheaper place to buy things so I don't recommend it. I canvassed some items and ironically, the items sold in this non-aircon area are more expensive, and quite outdated in style. I also found the...

  • Pearls & Other "Pasalubongs"

    Most tour guides bring tourists to Cora's Palawan Pearls & Souvenir Shop. As the name implies, Cora's Palawan Pearls & Souvenir Shop sells Palawan pearls and other "pasalubong" items. You may buy the pearls loose or as pieces of jewelry. The prices are not yet fixed so don't be shy to haggle for a discount. The shop is air-conditioned so you can...

  • Pasalubong

    It is a typical wet and dry market but I love shopping here for Pasalubong. I think they have everything! Must have in my list are:1. Dried fish (from danggit to fish bones - you name it they have it)2. Big bottle of Cashew wine (mom loves it)3. Big bag of cashew nuts4. Dozen containers of Spicy Dilis (anchovies)5. Pearls Depends on the quantity...

  • Last chance for supplies on Palawan

    NCCC Department Store is just off the main street, so most people will pass by without knowing it. It does not look like much from the outside, but inside it is a three floor department store. There are clothes, food products, and the last chance for some otherwise hard to find supplies in the smaller villages of Palawan. For example, a watch...

  • Buy cashew nuts!

    Make sure you get some cashew nuts for your 'pasalubong'! The roasted ones are great and cheap too! Make sure you go to the wet market for this and not on the big stores.Buy lobsters! for less than P500 per kilo! I think if you're going to buy a lot (5kilos+) they can make an arrangement about the packaging. Cashew Nuts!Lobster!

  • Good source of pasalubong!

    You might ask, a visit to the market is a thing to do? YES!!! The city's public market has a good wet section where you can get the freshest seafood at low prices! When we went island hopping in Honda Bay we dropped by the market to get seafood and found that the shrimps, crabs, lobsters, tuna, etc. are 40% cheaper than those sold in Manila. For...

  • Vietnamese's French bread

    VietVille's exterior looks like a native Filipino resto as it is made mostly from bamboo. Its interior is basic and typical of provincial pitstops with a little touch of Vietnam, mostly through pictures and mural. They serve local refreshments like Halo-Halo, their version of Kimchi, some Vietnamese noodles, and their best-selling French...

  • Crafted by the prisoners

    It's a small shop that I first mistook for a "sari-sari"(general merchandise) store or canteen. It does not have a signage outside and it was only when my trike driver stopped infront of it and asked me if I want to buy souvenir items that I realized it was not what I thought it was. I was not even sure I wanted to go inside, but when I was told...

  • A baker on the hill

    Another case of mistaken identity... I thought Baker's Hill is the name of the hill and was even impressed by the houses built on the area, only to be corrected by my trike driver... Baker's Hill is the name of the bakery/bakeshop atop the hill. I was a bit surprised to find that almost half of the breads and pastries they sell are from Ribonette's...
