Treasures for Souvenirs

Take some time from water sports and diving adventures for some Palau shopping and leisure. Our small country's impressive shops and stores offer a variety of treasures for souvenirs to bring home and remember your trip.

One of the most memorable Koror shopping experiences is picking up storyboards. This traditional art form is one of the most popular cultural exports, consisting of long, wooden carvings that tell an ancient Palauan folktale or legend. They are usually shaped into a crocodile, fish, or other local animals. Many destinations around the country sell storyboards, but the most famous are the Palau Jail Gift Shop, where they are carved by prisoners at the Koror Jail, and the proceeds are sent to their families.

On Main Street in Koror, Palau’s two main shopping centers compete with one another. WCTC Shopping Center is the largest mall in the country, with the biggest department store in Palau and a grocery complex, alongside fashion boutiques with clothing and fine jewelry. The other shopping center, located across the street from WCTC, is Surangel and Sons Co., also home to a department store and numerous fashion boutiques.
