Mall road becomes very lively in the evening stroll. There are many restaurants, shawl shops, liquor shops, crafts shop etc..... The best part is cars are not allowed on this road and hence its ideal for a walk. The architecture of the hotels in this street is also quite amazing. Some hotels in Mall road resemble European buildings.

I had heard so much about this, but it is really just a collection of shops trying to take your money nowadays. Disappointing. However, use your imagination and you can see what it was like in days gone by.

Merchants are laid back. They don't jump out in front of you and chase you down the street. Textiles are made in the region and are reasonably priced.

Beautiful old British architecture, you might as well have been walking down the cobbled lanes of London. The central square at the top where you have the church is a beautiful place to be in.

Lots of shops of all varieties and plenty of restaurants to choose from. No hawkers which makes it a pleasant experience. Has wonderful views. Note it is all a non smkking area and is policed.
