The Best Places to Shop for Souvenirs in Jakarta

EXPLORE JAKARTA | 30 January 2018

Many people who travel across Indonesia like to bring back small, typically local souvenirs as presents for family, friends or colleagues back home. In Jakarta, there are plenty of souvenir shops that sell products from across the country.

UKM Gallery
Situated in Smesco Building on Jl. Gatot Subroto, UKM Gallery offers high-quality local products, ranging from Indonesian textiles and clothing to handicrafts and local snacks. The products are created by talented entrepreneurs across the archipelago, who have all joined the Small Medium Enterprise Association. When tourists buy products from UKM Gallery, they automatically support the local economy and creative industries.


Ternyata di negara Arab, pangsa pasar produk furniture dan home decor semakin terbuka dengan makin berkembangnya kebutuhan perlengkapan untuk dekorasi hotel dan apartemen. Buktinya, dari pameran Decofair tersebut beberapa pihak di Arab Saudi memesan produk dari UKM binaan SMESCO Indonesia yang jumlahnya sangat besar. Bahkan, produk-produknya kian dilirik para buyer dari negara-negara Arab atau Timur Tengah. ’’Misalnya, buyer dari Mesir tertarik dengan produk home decorative dari SMESCO Indonesia. Nah, produk pajangan yang dipamerkan itu tak hanya dilirik buyer Mesir, tapi negara-negara Arab lainnya,’’ papar Emilia.
