"Artisana" Mali Things to Do Tip by lalakante

Mali Things to Do: 145 reviews and 286 photos


This is an art market in the center of Bamako. They have some amazing art there, including wood carvings, bogolans, jewelry, musical instruments, clothing, shoes, bags, hats, pottery, masks, soap stone carvings and much more. If you can, bring a local person you trust with you if you plan to buy anything, this way they can help you negotiate prices and you won't get swindled. Malians are good at that!

Address: downtown Bamako
