Every major city and Town in India has a 'Mahatma Gandhi' Road running through it, and in deference to the father of the nation is usually the main road of the erstwhile town or city, and Thiruvananthapuram is no different.

There are not many places in Trivandrum where you can roam easily and find food and shopping options as well. M G road gives reprise when you need the city feeling.

a permanent high flow of aggressive traffic,cars/motorbikes serpenting on either side of the road, hard to cross MG road, no flyovers/flyunders. watch the signals for pedestrians, but even when on green for you be very very careful. no traffic discipline with the indian drivers. definitely no pleasure shopping although some new fancy shops.

MG road is where all the major shops are located. Very close to the railway and bus stations .. There are a lot of shops and restaurants along this stretch. They also have some branded shops now so even better... For those who dont want to shop...there are a couple of theatres nearby or you can also leave the ladies... More
