Lot of shopping options in the heart of the city. Many malls. Prefer to take local transport as parking could be a issue, as small by lanes access roads to these malls.

MG road here is a really a shopping hub in Thiruvananthapuram with popular shops selling top branded items. Even groceries & spices can also be purchased from this wide street. You can't miss the aroma of coffee powder from Sankers Coffee on MG road while walking through here.

In my view, MG Road is the arterial road of Trivandrum city. We need to go to MG Road for the key shopping spots and landmarks of the city, most of them being on the sides of this road. It include shopping malls, stadiums, colleges, hotels, historic monuments, theatres etc. The road has heavy traffic during peak hours and most... More

Well it does have some decent shopping outlets but it comes nowhere near the mg road , cochin. You can just laze around and visit some good outlets or restaurants here like KFC. or visit pothys. I guess that is one decent shop on that road. Good that there are more than 10 theatres within 1 km of the road.... More

It is a single six lane road from University stadium to East Fort where you get only three and half lanes to use since the rest is used for parking. The road has all major landmarks of the old city, The Secretariat, AG's Office,University College, Statues of Madhavarayar and Velu Thampi Dalawa, Chandraskharan Nair Stadium and University Stadium, Ayurveda College,...

This road houses most of the shopping area in Tvm. It has all kinds of shops and restaurants. The only problem is you cant take you car out, the traffic will be immense. Better will be to walk to take and auto.
