Last time we went there was on 30th April 2006, I bought a cheap shoe on that day. Proved to be useful, think I might be bringing the family there again next month.
Here's roughly how the border town look like, mostly selling thrinkets, junks etc. Best buys would be the batik sarong, cos' the Indons are supposely to be expert in that industry. Other than that just get the sackloads of tidbits eg banana chips, tapioca chips good for sourvenir back in town, unless you prefer turtle eggs, plenty of that contraband here.
