Antananarivo Madagascar Shopping
The Government Shop in Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar, is a good starting point for your shopping trip. Shopping hours vary in Madagascar, but the usual opening hours are Monday - Saturday 08: 00 - 18: 00; shops can close after lunch at 12: 00 - 14: 30 and again after midnight.
Once you have your money together for shopping, you only keep your daily budget if you go shopping throughout the day. Don't forget to book an hour of body massage to pamper yourself at Komba 293 before the end of the week's shopping trip.
This lively and unique shopping holiday will allow you to find amazing treasures and trophies on the island. You may also want to explore the shopping malls of Antananarivo and Avenue of Independence. Don't forget to check that your purchases require an export permit when you leave Madagascar.
Antananarivo is a great place to explore unusual local handicrafts and is one of the best places to buy Malagasy handicrafts. Other locally produced items include hats made of reeds, raffia and straw, recycled paper with dried flowers and blouses that echo the traditional style of local women.
