"Souvenirs" Top 5 Page for this destination Bobo-Dioulasso Shopping Tip by canuckmike

Bobo-Dioulasso Shopping: 3 reviews and 5 photos


What to buy: Bobo-Dioulasso has some amazing shops to buy souvenirs. Although it was hard to find some souvenirs directly related to Bobo-Dioulasso I did find this dagger. Dealing with the sellers was also fun. Unlike most places in West Africa where the people selling stuff were annoying, these were quite nice. I could stay there for the better part of a day talking with them. If you only buy a couple of souvenirs and your are in West Africa for a while, I suggest waiting till you come here to buy them.
