    This is just newly open shop. Gallery, that is their concept. The shop has nice collection of furniture and house accessories such as candles, aroma therapy, paintings etc. Though my favorite part is they also accept treatment such as manicure, pedicure and reflexology.

    by Rinjani Written Feb 13, 2008

    Taman Ratu Safiatudin or also known as Pekan Kebudayaan Aceh (PKA) is Acehnese traditional housing complex. I found out that in one of the Acehnese house (a building opposite an entrance gate) that they sell Acehnese Batik. It is nice material, though also expensive. I also found out that they have sofa from natural fiber such as pandanus. It is really interesting.

    Acehnese souvenir continues to be hunted by people who wish to bring souvenir for their loved ones back home. Most of the shops in Banda Aceh offer bags, sandals, clothes, key holders, wallets with Acehnese embroidery. The shops also sell Rencong, Acehnese traditional weapon. If you are hesitate that the weapon will cause you a trouble in the airport, buy a smaller version of the weapon, or key holders perhaps?
    You can find most of souvenir shops in Peunayong area, also along Jalan Mohammad Jam.

    The gold shop is situated in Pasar Aceh. They have good crafted gold for the traditional Acehnese door (Pintu Aceh) form of bracelet, ring and necklace. You can also swipe card here (unfortunately only limited for visa and BCA card) The only low down of this place is they are so packed of people and it makes your shop less convenient.
