    GIFT SHOP IN THE ROYAL ENCLOSURE NO. 2

    by DAO Updated Jan 3, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    There are 2 ‘gift shops’ inside the Royal Enclosure. Pictured is the entrance to the second gift shop. This place has more art type objects and ladies accessories & handbags. It’s the more up-scale of the 2. Prices are high by Ethiopian standards, but you can haggle. They also sell jewellery of all descriptions.

    GIFT SHOP IN THE ROYAL ENCLOSURE NO.1

    by DAO Updated Jan 3, 2008

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    There are 2 ‘gift shops’ inside the Royal Enclosure. Pictured is the entrance to the first that is more like a mini indoor market. They seemed to have a lot of basic sculptures and crafts in mass quantities. This should aid you in haggling down the price. They are a little high in price by local standards, but you should be able to get a discount and pay a lot less than at the airport. There are not many places in the area to buy souvenirs, so these 2 shops are your best option. Argue! You will be charged more at the airport and they do not bargain at all there.

    A good place for making telephone calls, though not the cheapest. If you want to call cheaper, at the left of the main entrance there is a street where you will find chaep telephone places.
