D’Talipapa Market

D’Talipapa is a seafood market at which you can purchase almost any type of fish, shellfish or crustacean before getting them cooked to your taste in nearby restaurants. The concept is interesting, but you have to haggle hard to get interesting prices. The best bargain move here is to start by cutting the given price by half or even two third, then work up from there until you find a price everyone is happy with. King prawn, scallop, crab and clam are the favourite seafood available at D’Talipapa Market. The experience of shopping here is rather unique, and it gives you the opportunity to feast on top quality fresh seafood at unbeatable rates.

  • Opening Hours: 07:00 – 21:00
  • Location: in Stations 2, next to Henann Lagoon Resort off Boracay Tambisaan Jetty Port Road

E Mall

E Mall is a cool place to find souvenirs, beachwear and clothes. Similar to D’Mall, although slightly cheaper, you also have to bargain here if you don’t want to get ripped off. The downside of E Mall is that practically every shops sell the same products, so if you can’t find what you’re looking for in the first five shops you visit, there’s a good chance that you won’t find it at E Mall. Besides that, it’s pleasant to wander through this colourful market, bargain and joke with vendors, then enjoy a drink and snack at one of the many bars and restaurants in the market.

  • Opening Hours: 07:00 – 21:00
  • Location: Just north of Ambulong Road, Station 3 toward the southern end of White Beach

White Beach’s Hawkers

Whether you like them or not, hawkers are a part of most days on White Beach. The positive point with them is that they can get you almost anything you want while you are lazing on your sun-lounger: fresh drinks, fruits and snacks, hats, glasses, souvenirs, you name it. The downside is that there are many of them and your patience may wear thin after being harassed a dozen times for the same thing that you do not want to buy (or drink or eat). It’s almost impossible to get rid of them as they are officially recognised, and most of them belong to the Boracay Vendors and Peddlers Association. The best way to tell them you’re not interested is to just say “no, thanks” and act as if they’re not there. It’s not easy to be so rude as they usually are extremely polite and insistent, but it works.

What to Buy in Philippines

The Philippines is an excellent destination for anyone interested in picking up elaborate handicrafts, home-furnishings, jewelry, embroidery and baskets. In buying traditional crafts such as silks and carvings, tourists are invariably helping to support a still-growing and fragile economy. There is no doubt that Manila is the place to go for serious shopping. This is a Read More...
