Bringing home Manila

Filipinos love bringing home souvenirs from their travels, and they don't keep them for themselves either. The concept of giving gifts from trips is known in the country as "pasalubong", quite similar to the Japanese custom of bringing home "omiyage" for friends and co-workers. If you want to adopt the tradition of giving "pasalubong", or simply bring home a memorable piece from your adventure in that part of Asia, check out these shops full of homegrown treasures.
