Sea Plaza is a modern and sleek shopping centre that gathers everything one might expect: an impressive amount of international clothes shops and major brands, restaurants, a supermarket, pharmacies, and a flashy casino.
The best shopping to be found in Dakar is at the abundant and colourful markets all around the city. Some specialize in certain types of products, like fabrics or local produce, while others seem to offer just about anything you can think of. Be sure to haggle to ensure getting the best possible price, and beware of pickpockets, who tend to take advantage of the hectic bustle of markets.
