Mattancherry is a very good place for shopping of antiques and spices. The Jew Town have a vast collection of rare antiques. But it is also very expensive.

Wander along the harbour side road and check out all the sights and incredible smells of the wholesale warehouses and shops that line the road and check out the oils and perfumes in the smaller shops Turmeric, cardamom, nutmeg cloves star anise . They are all in abundance as well as the ubiquitous handicraft shops

The Old Jewish quarter, lovely shops no hassle, great antique shops and cafes/ restaurants.Spice shops in this part of town do not reduce their prices too much with haggling making it exceptionally bad value for money.over all a Good place to walk around.

The Mattancherry Palace is full of information. The wall paintings are awesome and well preserved. The artifacts, the images, the costumes, materials, weapons used in those time etc. Overall a good experience.
