Gift for Tourists that visit S'pore

Postby ttlkbs » Wed Jan 15, 2014 4:52 pm

My penpal is visiting S'pore next week and she is asking what can she buy here for her folks?
Any suggestion? She's from Taiwan.

Local products like batik, risis orchids or pewter.
If she needs lots of small items, there are souvenir shops with keychains, magnets, t-shirts etc.

Thanks to the suggestions. I guess the food has to be hand carried, right?
