Carcar is an hour and a half away from Cebu City, and is the turn off to the famous Moalboal dive sites.
Unlike in most towns and cities, the Carcar City Hall and church are not seen from the main highway, but tucked somewhere near the city center. A beautiful building sits between the city hall and the church that serves as a Museum.
The ampaw shops are concentrated on the rotunda. Go around and you will see several stores selling ampaw and chicharon.
Carcar has a robust shoemaking industry. A trade expo seems like a permanent set up on the grounds of the Acacia Grill restaurant.
Other than the restaurant, visitors can get refreshments at the end section of the trade expo building. Popsicles, sandwiches, and softdrinks are available. It is also at this end where bags and items other than shoes are available.
Try shopping in Carcar. My mom, an avid shoe shopper, says prices are very cheap. Step-ins are as cheap as P120, shoes can be as cheap as P150. I took photos from the different stalls for everyone to see the variety of styles, in the event you should pass by Carcar.
Nice photos, It has been a long time since I visited the shoe stores in Carcar. I have not been to Acacia. Maybe it’s time to go back. Nanay must have been quite happy with her loot. 🙂
How did I guess that Nanay bought 3 pairs? Kitang-kita ang ibidinsya!
ba’t wala kang picture nung malaking shoe dun sa may shoe expo?
and do you know the reason why di nakapasok sa guinness book of records yung shoe na yun?
Sira na. In fact, it was all covered in plastic. Still in its spot, not on display. Nag-iba na pati color.
