Shopping

South Africa's talented craftspeople produce excellent souvenirs and craftwork, from Big Five woodcarvings to township art, and the many workshops and cooperatives provide employment and training in poor communities. Shopping is as easy as sunbathing here, with myriad street hawkers, stands, markets, farm stalls, boutiques, arcades and malls. The likes of Cape Town have the best selection, but you can buy craftwork in most towns.
