Dakar Travel Guide

Dakar Shopping

Shopping in Dakar is an attraction in and of itself. Visitors to Senegal will be delighted by the colourful markets scattered throughout the capital city. The city''s markets are packed with local handicrafts including paintings, masks and ceramic pots. Senegal is particularly well known for batiks, glass jewellery and handmade skirts. Visitors to Dakar should head downtown to Kermel and the Sandaga markets. A short taxi trip from Dakar is the Soumbedioune Village which sells an extensive range of arts and crafts. Visitors should never accept the first price asked for by a vendor, rather browse the market, look at all there is available and then return and bargain hard.
