To Shop

Aranaz

This boutique sells bags, which would make great presents to take back for friends. So pick up a souvenir, or a pasalubong – the Filipino term for a homecoming gift. While you’re there, make sure you peek in Aranaz’s neighbouring stores – that floor in Greenbelt is dedicated to Filipino designers.

Market! Market!

Sitting right in the middle of Bonifacio Global City, you’ll discover an indoor marketplace full of cheap and cheerful Filipino goodies. Ask for the Filipino handicraft section and you’ll find everything from woven hats and baskets to glow-in-the-dark headbands and beaded jackets. On your way out, you can pop by the flower and fruit stalls. Be sure to try the local Filipino fruits – mango, mangosteen, pomelo, papaya, lanzones and rambutan.
