Oleh Oleh: "Wonderful handicrafts, furniture from Java" Surabaya Shopping Tip by Java-Man

Surabaya Shopping: 4 reviews and 1 photos

Oleh Oleh is rather hidden away in the Kupang Indah suburb of West Surabaya, but only about 25 minutes by taxi from the CBD.

The shop (on two floors)has an eclectic collection of handicrafts from all over Indonesia - batik, hand woven textiles, wood carving, statuary, silver jewellery, gifts, ornaments and teak furniture.

Prices are set and clearly marked. The staff are most helpful and speak English. Prices are very reasonable.

There is excellent quality control - everything is well chosen as being the best of its type.

This is a favourite haunt for expats living here - for furnishing a house, souvenirs, or gifts for friends back home.

What to buy: There is an excellent choice of batik and hand woven textiles from the islands East of Bali.

Beautiful silver broaches and necklaces.

Lovely handicrafts suitable for children and adults.

Substantial furniture - chairs, tables, four poster beds.

What to pay: Prices are very reasonable and generally cheaper than hotel shops.

Address: Jl Kupang Indah III/22
Directions: In West Surabaya, about 25 minutes from the CBD.
