this was a few kilometers away from where we stayed in baguio. off the beaten path of the usual burnham downtown crowds. the street is lined with woodcarving stores with some being carved on the spot by a father of a family we saw. wood carved products are 80% cheaper than that found in Manila or the stores in malls....

We were lucky to have chanced upon two men carving Dodo birds, which were to be exported. The wood carvings were beautiful! We were able to buy Bulul figures and a Nativity scene.

There are a number of stores in the area and they sell all kinds of wood carvings, wooden wares and furnitures of all kinds. The store accept made to order stuff, which... More

On our way to BenCab Museum, we we're able to see and drop by at some of this "Woodcarvers' Village". Nice work of art by the Ifugao's.

I love wood carving and i would spend the whole day strolling around this village. This is no museum rather an alley of small family-owned stores of various wood works. I bought nativity for P600. Bulol (rice guard) for P180-600. I have a great time buying with the old lady who owns the shop. She is alone taking care of... More

These artisans are great at their craft. Sadly, the products are too tacky for a tourist. I could imagine those amazing baskets in an eclectic mix of an art lovers loaf. How I wish their skills were driven my modern design.

Look for items made from real Kamagong wood, or Anahaw, or Molave. Bought a medium size Kamagong salad bowl for a fraction of what they charge in Metro Manila. They had a gorgeous chess set carved using Philippine-motif that was beyond our budget. The dark squares in the chessboard were Kamagong. They look like souvenir shops from the outside but... More

Upside 1. Road is lined with various (a lot!!!) shops selling wood-carved products. From home accessories, kitchen bowls/ chopping boards to ornate decorative pieces, furniture too 2. Prices are negotiable. Bought a hand made wooden tray for only P200 (USD 5) which now houses all my makeup (LoL) 3. Very close to the Ben Cab Art Museum. You can walk... More

I was able to buy a very affordable wooden bowl and egg holder here. The carved products are surprisingly amazing! The prices are almost triple the price as compared to Mall prices. I will definitely be coming back here and buy that wine holder and lechon plate!
