Shopping and Transportation

Imported goods are available for purchase with US dollars within 48 hours of arrival in the Philippines at the Fiesta Mall Duty Free Shop, which is located near the airport.

Public transportation to the nearby town of Silang (2 km) is readily available almost 24 hours a day. Fresh products can be purchased in Silang on any day of the week. Silang market days are Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. In addition, an on-campus market is open every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. A small AIIAS canteen near the students’ living quarters offers basic food and supplies at a reasonable cost. Shopping can also be done in nearby supermarkets in Silang, Tagaytay, Dasmariñas, and Pala-Pala, using public transportation available at the AIIAS gate.
