It is a very interesting place to browse. They have a great selection of souvenirs on show. Carvings were in short supply when l visited as wood became scarce due to excessive demand. Staff are friendly and helpful and they don't pressure you into buying.

Great selection of gifts and souvenirs. You can get everything here from small keychains and combs to patio furniture and dining sets. Prices seemed reasonable and quality of the products seemed very good. Unfortunately I was not able to return to make a purchase.

This is a combination antiques, handicrafts, souvenirs shop. The store is air conditioned which makes it a nice escape from the outside heat and humidity. Viewing the handicrafts steeps one in Philippino culture. I bought a Philippines T-shirt that the cruise ship crew all loved...More

On main street of Intramuros, huge store with tons to see on 3 different levels. Mostly wood furniture, baskets and so much more, prices range from low to very high. Still a nice place to explore in.

This store has crafts from across the Philippines and very reasonable prices on many items. It also has a small art gallery, where local painters display their works. I especially love the variety of woven goods they have from the various provinces. Stores like this...More

Depending on your tourist status, you need to think about what you can walk away with before you enter here - some of the most beautiful things (and nice prices) were a little too big for me to consider hauling onto an airplane. Still, it's...More
