cover2000-12Choma, not a place one would normally go shopping for Christmas gifts, but the Choma Museum and Crafts Centre does have a small craft shop which sells Tonga crafts at very reasonable prices.  Also in the museum complex is the Choma Gallery of Fine Art, which markets selected fine art. The proceeds from these sales helps rural peasant farmers to supplement their income.

They have a good selection of baskets as well as batik fabric and also clothing from these fabrics already made up.

I wouldn’t suggest driving there just for a shopping trip, but if you are passing by, do stop in and see what they have on offer and whilst you are there, relax in the Museum gardens before continuing your journey.
