Local Product Shop

In the day tour, it mention a place "Local Product Shop". Is it worth going? Or can we buy similar items in supermarket / shopping mall?

Hi flintstones1234,

Generally local product shops will consist of Indonesian-made items ranging from Batik, coffee, handycrafts, local snacks such as kerupuk and belinjo etc... It will be a good stopover if you are intending to get souvenirs, gifts or some traditional snacks. However, I believe that you can still get these local snacks from hypermarts :)

best you visit shopping malls / supermarkets . you normally get cheaper rates there than such shops , sometimes these shops do provide handicrafts / some snacks that you don't get in malls / supermarkets but it still doesn't hurt to visit .
