Pasalubong galore!


For some people, a trip is not complete without a pasalubong for themselves or their family and friends back home. After all, a pasalubong from a souvenir shop serves as a reminder of the memories created from visiting a certain place. Moreover, bringing pasalubong or take-home gift to people back home is a very Filipino tradition. Through it, the person shares his or her experience with others (especially if the item given is something that cannot be bought locally) and it strengthens his or her bond with them.

If you are the type of traveler who is really fond of shopping, Subic has a number of souvenir shops, from duty free shops and international food marketplaces to specialty stores and suppliers of personalized souvenirs. Yoorekka gives you a list of the best souvenir shops Subic has in abundance!
