You don't have to bring back the candy, chocolates, liquor, perfume, cologne, canned goods, Mah Ling, or appliances when you go back home. The Duty Free Shops carry most of these items and the prices are pretty comparable to what we have here in the U.S. This frees up some of your space for luggage and we all know we're limited to 70 lbs. per box.

Call the numbers below before you leave and ask for more information about the products they carry and other locations. I've called these numbers and they seem to be fine. If you need telephone numbers for Manila or Cebu Businesses or residents, please let me know.
