Once arrived at Pajak Ikan, you'll be welcomed by too many shops selling praying garments, head covers and cloth. Basically almost all shops are selling the same thing. Just choose a few shops and make your selection. Don't forget to bargain for the price. I bought from only one shop and my husband bought some great souvenirs from a seller that came to him. We were very happy with the purchased. Great place to shop if you love fabrics and bargaining :)
