Locally made crafts are the best souvenirs you can take home from Guinea-Bissau, and you can find them in just about any marketplace in the country. Guineans are very skilled artisans, producing beautiful traditional masks, African jewelry, pottery, and other goods. You can also buy woodcarvings along with handmade ceramics and other African crafts that say a lot about the country’s rich culture.

The largest market in Guniea-Bissau is known as Bandim Market, which is located on the main road into Bissau. It is an excellent place to get gifts, but small vendors also line most roads in the capital.
