FAB FINDS: Cheap Souvenirs from Boracay

Vacations are simply not complete without bringing home a few trinkets for family and friends. But if you think souvenirs in Boracay cost an arm and a leg, well, you thought wrong.

D’ talipapa also boasts of a number of stores selling various trinkets and knick-knacks in all shapes and sizes.


From t-shirts to sarongs, slippers to jewelry to cell phone charms, there’s something for everyone! The choices are endless.


Here are a few pieces from my haul, accomplished after half a day of shopping at d’ talipapa:

Tip: Haggle, haggle, haggle!

Wire bracelets selling for Php120

Wooden keychains - originally selling for Php100 for 7 pieces; was able to haggle for 8 pieces for Php100 instead

  1. Thanks to your blog! I finally got to check the price range of the pasalubongs that I can find in Boracay. By the way where the D'Talipapa located?

    Thank you

  2. @Anonymous: Hmmm...I cant exactly tell you the exact address but I can sort of give you an idea where it is. Its near the beachfront of station 2 but to get to d' talipapa, you'll have to enter a side street from the beach front. You'll notice the street immediately since its right beside a small coffee house (name escapes me as of the moment) plus there's a sign hanging by the road pointing to where it is. Just go straight ahead and you'll be sure to see it. =)
