Nice wood carvings

Some stores would tell us that their prices are cheaper than the Baguio Market but I found out that it is not that much difference as they say...

We were lucky to have chanced upon two men carving Dodo birds, which were to be exported. The wood carvings were beautiful! We were able to buy Bulul figures and a Nativity scene.

On our way to BenCab Museum, we we're able to see and drop by at some of this "Woodcarvers' Village". Nice work of art by the Ifugao's.

I love wood carving and i would spend the whole day strolling around this village. This is no museum rather an alley of small family-owned stores of various wood works. I bought nativity for P600. Bulol (rice guard) for P180-600. I have a great time buying with the old lady who owns the shop. She is alone taking care of... More

These artisans are great at their craft. Sadly, the products are too tacky for a tourist. I could imagine those amazing baskets in an eclectic mix of an art lovers loaf. How I wish their skills were driven my modern design.

Look for items made from real Kamagong wood, or Anahaw, or Molave. Bought a medium size Kamagong salad bowl for a fraction of what they charge in Metro Manila. They had a gorgeous chess set carved using Philippine-motif that was beyond our budget. The dark squares in the chessboard were Kamagong. They look like souvenir shops from the outside but... More

Prices are negotiable. Bought a hand made wooden tray for only P200 (USD 5) which now houses all my makeup (LoL) 3. Very close to the Ben Cab Art Museum. You can walk... More
