If you want something different en good quality go to this shop. A lot of wooden products. The service is good and they wrap your souvenirs very good. Don't forget to take a vanille milkshake. They are fantastic.

This shop has not the normal souvenirs but handcrafted staff from local companies. Unfortunately I did not find anything I really liked. They have good juices too.

Found this shop on internet and had good reviews. Finally found the place but if you looking for souvenirs it is better to go to the market, there isn't anything special except from some nice paintings.

We just happened to come across the store and I stopped in to check it out. In addition to the books, there are numerous local arts/crafts. We bought a painting and some carved wooden pieces here. The prices are reasonable and the staff is nice....More

Was at the waterfront bars many times before noticing this shop. Went in just to get some air conditioning and have a look. KK isn't covered in touristy trinket shops like say, Ubud in Bali. This was the only tourist shop we noticed in KK....More

They also have a shop in the resort Sutera Harbour which I thought had a better selection than the shop on the waterfront. Opening hours were better too. Ask at the front desk and they will show you where it is
