treasures hidden in dapitan arcade



We were finally able to search every corner of the famous Dapitan Arcade.

On a late Saturday afternoon, who would think the place would be quiet, so unlike Divisoria. And to think people just had their paychecks. The price of each item given to you by each store clerk isn't true as you can still make tawad. And up to how much can you haggle the price? Sky's the limit! As long as you have the gift in sweet-talking. Or maybe if you go there looking like an ordinary citizen of the world. Meaning, without your diamond earrings.


So, how do you get there? It's about 10 minutes away from Welcome Rotonda. When you see the branch of Burger King, turn right on Mayon Street. Then just go straight. It's a stone's throw away from the Baranggay Hall. You won't miss it. As soon as you see native baskets and ceramics scattered on the road, you're on the right track. And now, to give you an idea on what you may see there, here are our finds.






Happy hunting!
