Shopping

Réunion is not exactly a world-class shopping destination, but you can still pick up interesting craft pieces and handmade items. St-Denis and St-Pierre have the widest range of souvenirs and plenty of upmarket shops selling jewellery and designer clothing, while Entre-Deux, Plaine-des-Palmistes, Le Maïdo and St-Philippe have a strong tradition of local crafts. Réunion's famous Vanille Bourbon is available in Bras-Panon and in Le Tremblet. Also look for rum, spices and essential oils.
