Get beach essentials and pasalubongs from these stores!
Cebu is definitely one of the top tourist destinations in the country. And what do you do when you tick off a place from your travel bucket list? You bring home a souvenir. Since travelers have to go to the airport earlier than usual, they may become anxious about where to find souvenirs they can take home with them.
But they won’t have to worry about this. There are a number of boutiques and shops close to the airport offering different products. And in addition to the wide selection of souvenir items, these shops also offer travel essentials to make visitors’ stay unforgettable. Read on to see where you can buy both souvenirs and travel essentials near the airport!
One gadget that travelers may find very useful is a powerbank. A powerbank is a portable device used to provide energy to electronic devices through a USB connector. With a powerbank in the bag, travelers will not have to worry about having their devices running out of juice. Problem is solved in case they forget to charge their devices while at the hotel.
Travelers looking to buy gadgets and other electronics can drop by Digihub at Gaisano Island Mall . Since the mall is located along the road on the way to the airport, it will not be difficult to find.
When buying a power bank, it is important for travelers to take note of the output current rating of the device they are buying. A power bank with a high output current rating can provide more power for devices they want to charge.
The Islands Souvenirs Shop is a one-stop shop for almost all souvenir items travelers can think of. More importantly, the shop has a wide range of souvenir shirt designs visitors can choose from. It is conveniently located along the Lapu-Lapu Airport Road, making it ideal for travelers who want to do some last-minute shopping for local items to take home. Other souvenir items available at Islands Souvenirs Shop include bags, caps, mugs, and even Cebuano delicacies.
Travelers who were unable to bring clothing suitable for the beach will not have to worry about going all the way to Cebu City to buy a set of beach wear. A shop at The Outlets at Pueblo Verde opened recently to serve the needs of the residents of Mactan. And travelers can absolutely take advantage of it.
Reef is an international company known for producing high quality surf-inspired sandals, shirts, bags, and shoes, as well as surfing gear. Last February, the company opened a store at The Outlets at Pueblo Verde, a commercial retail project in Mactan by property developer AboitizLand that houses top brands selling high quality items at discounted prices.
Mactan island is home to some of the best beaches in the archipelago. And one must-have for travelers going to the beach is a good pair of sunglasses! Those who may have overlooked bringing their favorite eyewear can simply drop by the Oakley Vault at The Outlets at Pueblo Verde before heading off to the beach.
Oakley is a California-based company that designs and manufactures sports performance equipment and apparel. Aside from sunglasses, the Oakley Vault at The Outlets at Pueblo Verde also offers board shorts, shirts, and flip-flops to their customers.
While it may be located a good distance away from the airport, the Oakley Vault in Mactan is not too difficult to find. The Outlets at Pueblo Verde is located close to the Basak-Marigondon Road.
Travelers and visitors need not be anxious if they have limited time to shop for souvenirs or travel essentials in Cebu City because of their tight schedule. They can simply go to Mactan and shop to their heart’s content at the different boutiques and shops located near the airport in the island. These shops offer a wide selection of products visitors can choose from to make their stay in Cebu more memorable.
