The place to buy souvenirs

This was by far the cheapest place too buy souvenirs, but you better know how to barter. My wife is Filipina and I am American so the vendors like to ask high prices when they... read more

This is a fish market and you can buy the sea food and give it to Near by restaraunts for cooking and they will take their cooking charge. You should negotiate well enough . if they say 2000 you should start with 500

Went here for dinner and wow...fresh seafoods everywhere. Oysters, scallops, tiger prawns, mussels, sea urchins, crabs, lobsters, are a few. Whew! i can't contain my excitement seeing these creatures on our table. I really suggest you must try their paluto service.

Avoid the fish market at all costs. Firstly the "asking" price is ridiculously high, like more than double per kilogram that I would pay at my local super market for live lobster. 3500 pesos per kilo is their starting price. It is about 1600 pesos where I live, where lobster isn't even local. Since the lobster I was shown, no... More

Interesting concept they offer here. There is a fresh seafood and chicken market where you can buy 1/2 kilo or more of fresh produce. Then you take it to one of the cafes around the market that will cook your produce for you for a fee. I felt the overall price was expensive but it was an interesting experience as... More

This was by far the cheapest place too buy souvenirs, but you better know how to barter. My wife is Filipina and I am American so the vendors like to ask high prices when they see me, so we decided to split up my daughter and I would walk ahead of the wife and get the price then in comes... More

It was my first time to roam around stations 2 and 3 in boracay. The talipapa market is just near station 2. You will find a variety of shops for pasalubong, souvenirs, food, clothing, etc. The most common items you will find are handmade soaps, banana chips, dried mangoes, and coconut-based products among others. You will also find sea food... More

We came to eat seafood at the market, and found out that the best (taste and price wise) place to cook the fresh goods you buy is right next to it, in sawerby's!! The batter-garlic is to die for!! Enjoy!

Had a great experience purchasing... wheeling and dealing better prices for some amazing prawns, snapper, scallops and oysters!! Had it all cooked for us at one of the nearby restaurants! Hot tip... don't be shy asking for 50% off their first price... walk off and they often will do it for the price u say or a tiny little bit... More

Great place - little expensive compared to markets in other places in PH - but its authentic and a lot cheaper (and the food fresher) than on the beach. Enjoy Warning: the drains/sewers are overflowing especially after the rain. This leaves big smelly puddles everywhere. Wading in this is not a pleasant experience.

Well almost all of us loves seafoods..if your looking for one,d talipapa is the best place to eat some fresh seafoods like prawns,crabs,clams and different types of fish..after buying those stuff,there is a restaurant across that offers cooking services..they have different prices for different cooking styles..overall,a bit pricey but if your a seafood addict,then its all worth it..

Thank crizchan
