shopping / Souvenirs & gifts

Lonely Planet review

Souvenir shops line Jl Ahmad Yani. Poke your head into Tanjung Raya Art Shop and Aladdin. Box collectors can look out for a couple of Minangkabau versions. Salapah panjang (long boxes) are brass boxes used for storing lime and tobacco; salapah padusi are silver boxes for storing betel nut and lime.
