Princess street is a small lane with few shops, restaurants and cafes on both sides. All the shops and restaurants were lit beautifully with lantern and fairy lights.

....this street is full of them, but it's not pretty. It's a long street so you need to be fit if you're going to tackle it and prices are reasonable. We did enjoy some very good refreshment at a small place with no recognisable name other than an ice cream supplier. Apart from buying a pair of sandals on this... More

We could have walked there for hours. But we had to return to our fabulous hotel and restaurant Old Habour Hotel and 1788, the name of the restaurant, and date of the house.

interesting enough, be prepared to walk down Kashmir and/or Ladakh as most of the shops here offer products from this region!! Had a blast, esp lively at night.
