Souvenir Stalls: "Handmade Crafts" Boracay Island Shopping Tip by j_roadrunner

Boracay Island Shopping: 84 reviews and 138 photos


Boracay is a great place to shop for locally made arts and crafts. There are many little shops and stalls along the beach selling a wide variety of wares, such as bags, carvings, jewellry and paintings. Shop in the Talipapa (market) to get the best prices - the shops in the mall tend to be more expensive. You can usually haggle the price too.

Theme: Local Craft
