A trip to Singkawang is incomplete without bringing gifts for the family at home. This is the only place in Singkawang to hunt for souvenirs.

Singkawang Souvenirs and Snacks Center, that’s the name of this one place. This place is the largest souvenir center and the only one in Singkawang. You can shop for souvenirs until you are satisfied here.

The souvenirs sold here are complete. From snacks, coffee, honey, syrup, handicrafts, batik, to t-shirts, they are also available. Travelers just have to choose which souvenirs they want to bring home.

The manager of the Singkawang Snack Souvenir Center, David, said that this place used to live and don’t want to die. But since he stepped in, the turnover of this gift center has increased many times over.

One of the breakthroughs made by David is by presenting a culinary place with Indonesian flavors that sells foods such as Soto Betawi, Batagor, and various other culinary delights. In addition, he also often makes live music entertainment events to attract visitors.

“Since there is a place for food, it has become crowded. Turnover was only in the millions, now it can be in the tens of millions,” added David.

Here there are a variety of products on offer. If you want a savory-savory snack, a traveler can try disco beans, vegetable chips and also banana sales.
