Shopping: What are the best things to buy here?

03/27/2017 0

For souvenirs with local flavour look for watercolour and oil paintings by local artists, indigenous jewellery, coconut and bamboo candles, locally designed clothing, stained-glass items, driftwood sculptures, coconut bracelets and hair ornaments, miniature boats made from local woods, crocheted and batik clothing, pottery and handmade straw baskets, place mats, handbags, hats and toys. You may be able to barter the price at local stalls and markets. Shops tend to close early and are almost never open on Sundays and holidays.
