Our Palawan shopping guide introduces what’s available for you to buy in the most popular destinations in this large province on the western side of the Philippines. You’ll certainly find a huge contrast between the shopping scenes of Puerto Princesa, El Nido, and Coron, for instance. As a capital city, the first of these hosts a few large shopping centres, while smaller destinations, even if they are popular, have only small boutiques and convenience stores.
Markets are the only shopping options that can be found everywhere in Palawan, even in the tiniest village. They generally offer both the essentials and a few interesting souvenirs to remind you of your experience here. Be sure to haggle, though – it’s pretty much expected, so the opening price will always be a little on the high side.
