The ideal shopping for tourist in Zamboanga City would be Barter Trade located in Canelar and in "pueblo" - city center. From the definition of Barter - To trade goods - which a trading port of Philippines to countries like Malaysia and Indonesia. The barter trade is known for selling imported products at a reasonable price because its tax-free.

This is an open and public market and 100% NO credit card so bring cash.

What to buy: Malong - this is a muslim traditional clothing and famous in Zamboanga. So grab one before leaving the place. You can also see several muslim clothings like turong and bails for men.

There are several options of instant noodles of Indonesia and Malaysia. Nothing really exceptional but you can just try.

Candies and goodies again from Indonesia and Malaysia.

What to pay: Cash basis only

Address: Canelar Barter and City Center
Directions: Canelar Barter is tricycle ride from town which cost 30 pesos. But the Barter trade in pueblo is much convenient.
