Shopping The guide was updated:Shop till you drop or until the money runs out, which in a city with so many fantastic bargains could be quite difficult. Cebu is the country’s leading producer of hand crafted products such as shell crafts, basket ware and woven cloth fashion, accessories, silver and gift ware are also plentiful.
Highlights of mall shopping include the downtown Ayala Centre, SM-Cebu and Gaissano Country Mall in Baniland and Colon Street has both small and large department stores.
For some haggling adventure, the vibrant public market of Carbon on Briones and Calderon Streets sells just about everything over an area of seven blocks.
For that something a little different and authentic, Lapu-lapu city on Mactan island has a long heritage of guitar making and a number of factories are open to the public for purchases.
