Lagos Travel Guide

Lagos Shopping

Shopping in Lagos is a colourful affair. Whether it''s markets, malls or boutique stores, the city has something for all shoppers. When planning your trip to Lagos it is best to put aside at least a day for exploring the various shopping opportunities on offer.

The larger shopping malls are located on Lagos Island and the Lekki Peninsula. Shoppers wishing to find clothes, jewellery, electronics and high-end souvenirs should head to Victoria Island''s Palms Mall, Megaplaza and Park ''n Shop. Lagos has a great selection of mementos and gifts for friends and family back home. Visitors wishing to buy masks, crafts, paintings, statues and local jewellery will be in their element at Oyubo Market, which is located 8 miles (14km) from the city centre. The market is divided into a food section and a handicraft area. Many of the city''s hotels, particularly the Meridien Eko Hotel, have great gift shops, and traders stationed outside the hotel.

Bargaining is essential at the markets in Lagos. A general rule of thumb is to offer a third of the asking price. Most seasoned hagglers will agree that starting at a third of the asking price and settling at half is the best way to get the item you are after.
