The Aldevinco Shopping Center is right across the street from the Marco Polo hotel. It is filled with tiny shops offering batik fabrics, purses, blouses, tee shirts, hats, and jewelry. Be careful about buying pearls -- you can tell from one shop to the next that some are fake, but even the costume jewelry in American dollars is a bargain!... More

In the past - meaning before the shopping malls like SM, or Gaisano, Felcris, or NCCC took over retailing in Davao City, Aldevinco was practically the only place where you could buy souvenirs from Davao City. There were ethnic crafts like Mansaka beadwork, T'boli Tinalak, wood carvings, antiques, batik cloth from Zamboanga and many other stuff. Today, the merchandize has... More

The Aldevinco Shopping Center has a lot of stores in which they sell Batiks and Pearl products, the area in which it is located is just near from a hotel and city's tourist destination. If you want to buy some known products from Davao, visit The Aldevinco Shopping Center for Gift ideas for your love one's. Happy Shopping :)

Our guide recommended this place to us for some affordable native souvenirs and pearls. There were open area stalls and air-conditioned stalls. Usually the items sold in the open areas are cheaper compared to the ones with AC. Don't be afraid to haggle as it is expected. There are lots of cute and intricate blouses, long skirts, shirts, and of... More

My first time in Davao and this was so convenient across from the Marco Polo Hotel. Great gifts, solid prices and locates some antique metal tobacco boxes tucked away in a shop corner. Definitely stop by when you visit!

It was nice walking around in Aldevinco to see the many different items being sold. Relatively quiet during the day (it is open between 8am to 7pm) but the shop owners are keen to sell their goods when you are browsing around. Feel free to negotiate and bargain with them!
