We Filipinos are very fond of pasalubongs, gifts that we buy at places we visited for folks back home. Be it food, clothing, trinkets or handicrafts, its almost a must do before heading home.
But one of the biggest hassles of buying these? Most, or generally, products that we want as pasalubongs, especially if these are beyond the usual ref magnets and sweets, are often found in other locations. And usually, because of the lack of time, we often forego buying items that we want.
In Dapitan City, it’s simpler, pretty much straightforward and interesting products are found in one location: Dapitan Pasalubong Center. First, the location is strategic. Located near the boundary of the cities of Dipolog and Dapitan. It’s just along the highway, in a spacious location with ample parking space.
You won’t miss it, especially if you’re done with touring the latter and going back to Dipolog as it is quite visible and, with buntings and color, has a festive atmosphere. Designed as a native structure made from light materials like bamboo and nipa, each partition is a different store.
There are different products to chose from. Interested with basketry? Just head to stall #4. Want to bring fresh vegetables and crabs? Stall #8 is there. There are native bags, local delicacies, native sweets and the usual pasalubong items like shirts and keychains. There are so many to chose from and at a location that has it all.
Check it out when you visit Dapitan City.
