You'll get stinky sure, but if you love eating danggit or dried fish I think that's fine. All sorts of pasalubong is found here -- dried fish/squid, chorizo, dried mango, mango/tamarind balls, etc. Dried seafood are vacuum sealed. Don't forget your haggling skills.

Hi! Was not able to take pictures there. It's 400 pesos per kilo of dried mangoes. They can put it in a vacuum bag for you.
