  • Otentic sovenir from Timor Leste...Tq:)
  • The place for souvenir hunting, with products ranging from bags, purse, traditional jewellery, and more. Price is always negotiable.
  • Great to buy a Tais. Thanks
  • The best spot for souvenirs, for Tais and other accessories
  • Quite small for what I expected but nice market with friendly locals. You should do some bargaining to get the best price!
