If jewelry is your thing, this is definitely the place to go. Blocks of nothing but jewelry. After a few blocks, though the aggressiveness of the hawkers trying to get you into their stores begins to grate a little. Just move on if you are not interested. Of course, if there are several cruise ships in port that day, it... More

Liked little and disliked much. Engaging Indian and local merchants on their histories was fun (while my wife shopped)

We were looking for flip flops and gifts for small kids, and while we were able to find them, we had to be hounded by about 5,000 jewelry store employees trying to lure us into their lairs. If we were in the market for jewelry, all the options would have been nice, but as we were not, it was just... More

Loved all the shops heavily discounting jewelry and more expensive items. Great selection, especially watches. Very cordial service. Even cameras and binoculars. Some nice restaurants.

This is just an experience everyone visiting should have. People are great, shopping is great and there is something for everyone. Parking is rough if you drive yourself.
