Today I'm gonna take you to Dapitan, Quezon City. This is the small market district where you can buy handcrafted items, home interiors, gift items and Christmas decors at very affordable price. Shoppers flock here during Christmas to get maximum value for their money, and this year is no different. So for those of you who have no idea on the location of Dapitan Market or Dapitan Arcade as it is popularly known, just bookmark this for your future reference.
But before I give directions to Dapitan Arcade, I wanna share some images taken just two days ago when we went to Dapitan Arcade.
