Souvenir Shop: Tiangge Tiangge of Palawan

The No.1 Pasalubong & Souvenir Center in Puerto Princesa 
by lakwatserong tatay

Every tourist have one thing in common, when visiting different places. For me, there are three principles that is always occur, first to see the beautiful sites and spots of the place you've visited, second, eat and dining experience would also be a good remembrance in visiting different places and last one, and for me, the most important one, the souvenir shops and outlets, most of the tourist don't miss to do this, buying or getting something for your own remembrance, pasalubong's and serves as an artifact or souvenir that you've been to this place......^_^.
Tiangge Tiangge......
Like any tourist destination, there are many souvenir items for sale at every tourist site in Palawan. In each place you visited in Palawan, there are vendors and souvenir outlets on each of this tourist sites that sells souvenir items such as t-shirts, fancy pearls jewelries, ref magnets, key chains and etc. You may think that is affordable. Thanks to Kuya Ronald for bringing us to this best place and the no.1 pasalubong shopping center of Puerto Princesa: "Tiangge Tiangge".

In Tiangge Tiangge, there is an Air Conditioned Tiangge and the regular Non-Aircon Tiangge. The Air Con is a one stop shop for your souvenirs. Here you can find cheap t-shirts, local food delicacies, Palawan pearls (loose pearls as jewelry), faux crystal bracelets, native trinkets, woodcrafts and a lot more. One most unique thing on Cora's Palawan Pearls and Souvenir Shop (Air Conditioned Shop).
Cora's Palawan Pearls & Souvenir Shop
Some unique features with this store. The prices on this souvenir shop are not yet fixed, so don't hesitate or be shy to haggle for a discount. There's a BDO Credit Card Logo, so i guess they accept credit cards here. This shop is also only the air-con store in Tiangge Tiangge, so you can shop in comfort even if you have a hard time deciding what to buy yet, and one thing i really found out, most of the tourist guides, encourage all of the tourist to go in this store instead of the non-aircon stalls, you will found it. why?....
The Non-Aircon Tiangge Tiangge....
Tiangge Tiangge is a non-aircon area where you can choose from a clusters of stalls selling souvenir and "pasalubong" items. Previously i've said why you should not go on this section because of few things, it is not necessarily a cheaper place, because i canvassed some items and ironically, the items sold in this non-aircon area are more expensive, and quite outdated in style. One more thing that i've found out the salesladies or store keepers are quite cranky when you hold/examine an item but don't but it. Infact i've heard someone saying...."hawak ng hawak, hindi naman bibilhin." This is not a good trait to a tourist or buyers like us. But it is really up to you trippers, tourists and even local buyers, where you will buy your souvenir items, competition has its advantage after all, im just only sharing my experience.....^_^.
