This market is the largest on offer and probably where you will get the best prices on goods. This market is located in Station 2 and only a short tricycle ride away from DMall. You can purchase gifts, clothing, alcohol, soaps, and the list goes on. Make sure you bargain hard.

When you get to talipapa, always ask for a discount and around each stall for the seafood prices. They usually charge you a very high price for the live seafood. What's worse, the restaurants will try to scam you for cooking your food (around 300 pesos per kilo). Overall i would not recommend this place, especially to the Korean tourists... More

Better shopping and prices than D'Mall, but not the best yet. We came here twice, the second time it had just finished raining, and the smell of cat urine made it difficult to stay long. The place is over-run with stray cats (whereas the rest of the island is mostly stray dogs). There is no grass or sand, it's all... More

This is a culinary must do in Boracay, but you need to bargain well. Selection of restaurants you can dine at, who can cook your purchased ingredients Not the most hygienic (cats roam beneath the tables); but satisfying nonetheless

Compared to d'mall this is the place to go for souveniours. Whether it is trinkets, shirts, hats or just about anything else you will find the prices much better and you can barter with the merchants. Here you will find more of the local people compared to d'mall where it is more larger more expensive shops. There are many small... More

you can find a lot of stalls here selling cheaper souvenirs and shirts than the one on dmall. as always, haggle for the best price. There are also a lot of restaurants here serving seafoods but the one we tried was a little bit of a disappointment since it's not that fresh anymore.

Found a shop selling keychains with free names, but the designs here were much nicer than those at D'Mall. Even though they were selling at 4 for 100 pesos. D'Mall sold it at 8 for 100 pesos. Not too sure if it was overcharged, but it was definitely worth the money for a beautiful personalized keychain for my friends. :)... More

My advise is to ask around and bargain before committing as they will charge ridiculously high prices if you are a tourist. Lucky for me, I have a local guide with me and he whispered the market rate of the lobsters to me. It was my birthday and my girlfriend was so eager to get me a huge lobster, a... More
