Whether you are on Regent Street or in Charity Village, shopping should never be omitted from your itinerary while in Guyana. From gifts and jewelry to crafts and clothing can be found in this wonderful land, you name it we have it!
Street vending, markets, arcades, malls and stores are very common shopping areas. Guyanese are very creative people and our talents are showcased through the originality and ingenuity found within our products. Handmade slippers, sculpture, paintings, ornaments, key rings, leather crafts and beaded crafts are just some products our local craft industry produces.
Guyana’s gold and diamonds are of finest quality with exquisite designs and unique patterns being the norm. Most of our pieces are locally handmade and can be found in many of our jewelry stores. The great hospitality of the Guyanese people is evident as one shops for almost anything, from fresh fruits and vegetables to exquisite souvenirs at very reasonable prices.
