One of the things I enjoy doing is taking a browse through the Bohol Fish Market, here in Tagbilaran. These sort of places are often crowded, hectic, a little stinky from the fish but for some reason I find them interesting. It’s also the best place to get vegetables, much cheaper than the mall. Often you can get the veggies already pre-cut and ready for chop suey or stir-fry. And super cheap too.
You can get some pretty good deals on shrimp, fish, oysters and even crab and eel if you desire. Cheaper than the supermarket, just be sure to haggle the first price. Okra, cabbage, carrots, sprouts, chilis, apples, pineapple, coconut.. so much to choose from! And many of the vendors have veggies pre-cut, ready to just stir-fry into a tasty meal. Add some shrimp.. mmm! The marketplace here closes around 5pm, going in the morning is best time since it’s the cooler part of the day.
So without further ado.. here’s the short video I shot on my first trip to the marketplace here in ‘Tag’. Enjoy!..

After 49 years living in Southern California, USA, I decided to move to the Philippines despite never having been here before. I spent a year getting all the information I could online and in July, 2012, I took a leap of faith and transplanted myself first to Mactan and then began my trek through Cebu, Bohol, Panglao, Moalboal, Dumaguete, Bacong and now living in Cebu City, here in the amazing Philippines.
Starting in January of 2019, I will begin a slow trek through Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and possibly Malaysia, China and Japan. My itinerary is open with no big rush since I hope to share in detail what each place is like as I enjoy it for months at a time.
I am a single man taking an honest look at all that Southeast Asia has to offer, one day at a time. I hope you find my channel informative and/or entertaining. 🙂
I hope you will make use of the links I provide as they help to support some of the costs of making this channel possible. Thanks!
