Souvenir market: Carved wood
There's a souvenir market running along the road right outside Abijan. Souvenirs are of good quality, I liked the quality of carved wood. Always bargain, try to reduce the price as much as you can.
I paid about USD100 for one carved wooden bowl (about 20 cm diameter), two carved wooden elephants (about 20 cm in size) and about 15 small hippopotamuses (5-7 cm in size).Related to:
