    Stalls on Jalan Pattimura: Souvenir market

    by theo1006 Updated Nov 23, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For Kalimantan souvenirs we were advised to go to the stalls on Jalan Pattimura, which runs just north of the Cathedral.

    What to buy: Here you can find all kinds of Dayak stuff, from clothing made of bark to traditional swords (mandau), from hats of natural fiber to rattan matting. Of course there is also a choice of miniature equator monuments to put on the mantelpiece. Gemstones too are a specialty of Kalimantan, but we were reluctant to lay down IDR 10 million for a black diamond. And what to think of traditional medicine like an ants nest that is claimed to cure cancer and chips of a certain root an infusion of which stimulates male potency?
