Shopping in Suriname


Suriname, and Paramaribo in particular, is a great place to shop. Great value and plenty of interesting shopping opportunities, including gold and silver jewellery, electronics, clothing and gifts. Shopping in Paramaribo’s historic inner city will certainly enhance your experience of Suriname. Try your hand at some traditional crafts in specialised souvenir shops and at the handicraft market at the Waterfront. Here a visit to the Central Market with its exotic flavours of Suriname is a colourful experience.

Popular items include Maroon tribal woodcarvings, hand-carved and hand-painted trays and gourds, Amerindian bows and arrows, cotton hammocks, wicker and ceramic objects, gold and silver jewellery, Javanese bamboo and batik, as well as tobacco and liquor products.

Chinese shops sell imported jade, silks, glass, dolls, needlework and wall decorations.
