Lots of interesting little shops to buy products, also some great restaurants, but beware of the tourist traps. Also always go in to other shops to compare prices of products as they all seem to have similar products

You an find the odd and interesting thing, but most shops seem to have the same things. It's OK to walk around and browse.

Several restaurants and handcraft shops are around calle Saganarga. You can consider a safe and tourist area. If you going to shop don't forget to bargain. The street ends at the São Francisco church plaza.

Calle Saganarga is the gringo central of La Paz. There's some amazing shops here - the quality of the crafts is very good here and shopping is a pleasant experience - not too much aggressive haggling. You pay more for Bolivian made stuff than Chinese...More
