Located near the Chinese Museum close to the waterfront, this gallery occupies two floors. There are a lot of teak furniture and a wide array of tribal art and craft here. Worldwide shipping and delivery is arranged for purchases. Pricing is on the high side.

John's Gallery was my top spot for purchase of primitive art. They have a wonderful selection of authentic art at reasonable prices. The staff did an excellent job of packing my items and getting them safely shipped off.
