Shopping in Paramaribo
Paramaribo's largest handicraft and souvenir centre, ReadyTex Crafts, offers woven palm-fibre baskets, ceramics and wooden carvings to take home. From there, head to the Central Market - an ideal place to watch bartering in full swing amid piles of fruit, sacks of yucca and pots of brightly coloured spices. For floral bouquets and offerings head to the Flower Market on the Kleine Waterstraat, a riot of colour and fragrance set against a picture-perfect colonial backdrop.
