  • This is a very good local handicraft shop opposite the Race course. They have a very good selection of local crafts to take back home. Parking available.  more »
  • Huge product range at a very fair price (other than eg. Laksura) + friendly / non-pushy staff. Would definitely come back when looking for souvenirs and little gifts.  more »
