We took a grab car to the Borneo Trading Post to buy some souvenirs - it had a good range of items and we spent quite a while browsing before buying.

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.

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

The disadvantage with this shop is the location as it is about a 1km from the City placed on the water front between a row of bars and a night club . It looks shut at all times of the day, you do not know...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
