Visited Pandanus as I had been trying to purchase some local souveniers - was very disappointed that only items were soaps and body lotions and some t- shirts. Enquired from the lovely salesgirls regarding souveniers, they directed us to a Chinese shop! I did not...More

First off, I have to say that this store was a gem in all the "souvenir" shops along the main road in Port Vila. It has unique, interesting, and well designed goods for purchase. I liked a lot of items that I considered purchasing as...More

Ok, you won't find 1$/pc items here. It's a cute designer boutique, upmarket and so - no cheap souvenirs, no Chinese fairs. And so no post-shopping regrets! In Pandanus you find things that you'll actually wear, use and display when back home. Pretty, stylish, modern,...More

Well designed, trendy, island style gifts, art and clothing. Prices a bit higher than the average souvenir shop but then you are buying things here that are quite different to the 'average souvenir' shop.

Loved visiting this shop. They sell a selection of t-shirts, tea towels, jewellery, food items, etc. Not particularly cheap but great if you're after something a bit different and unique. They have a small selection of good quality wooden tamtam carvings. A 30cm one will...More
