Asiano Wooden Carvings

"Asiano" - A really good place in Puerto Princesa to get authentic made in Palawan souvenirs.  Made with many recycled sticks and objects.  Real locals and some indigenous tribes make the wares. The owner, and designer of many handmade items, actually walks several hours to buy the carvings and raw materials for the native tribes.

Asiano has wood carvings and other handmade items made in Puerto Princesa and other tribal places or towns.

It's one of my favorite places to shop for one of a kind carved items or wall hangings. They even have fashion items like cool bracelets, necklaces, earrings and such made from beads, terra cotte, wood carvings etc.

It's just before a restaurant called "Palayok at Bilao" on Rizal Avenue towards the airport from the Capitol Bldg. Every day something new comes in so check it out for unique gifts to take away with you from Puerto Princesa, Palawan.

They carry hand carved bangle bracelets, household items, wooden statues, wooden bowls and really interesting and unique wall hangings. Great souvenirs to bring home with you are at Asiano! You can be assured they are made locally and nothing imported from China!

Hi Diana!

I just stumbled upon your blog and I think its really fabulous!

My boyfriend and I (as well as his brother and wife) are coming to the Phillipines for our winter holidays over Christmas and New year (along with I'm sure thousands of other people) to enjoy the beautiful place you now call home!
I was wondering if you would be able to recommend any places to stay/eat/visit.

We are arriving Christmas day from Manila, and then have 2 days before we head up North to El Nido.

Anyways, any information/ideas would be greatly appreciated!
Keep up the wonderful work with your blog!

Hi Roxy, well you miss spelled your website, but due to my Sherlockian logic, I figured it blog.

Depends on your budget, what I recommend! Lots of nice places. Want in town? Out of town, want to see the underground river? Let me know..
