I found some high quality shops and purchased a beautiful hand embroidered silk duvet cover from one shop as well as a cute child's winter jacket and cap from another.

Great variety, good prices & obliging staff.
All shopping in the Old Quarter is made easy by having shops selling the same products in the one street. Do not be afraid of bargaining!!! but do smile & be polite!!





all shopping

We spent lots of time here visiting tailors and having suits, coats, dresses and jackets made. We were not disappointed in any of them and were very pleasantly surprised with the speed with which they were made and the value for money. We also bought a few pairs of prescription glasses and sunglasses at a fraction of the cost we would pay at home. They were exactly right and made in double quick time!

Got recommended from the hotel to be the place to buy silk. However we finally got nothing to buy from the wallet as it was stolen by somebody on the street. The hotel staff had reminded me before but it was still a moment of neglect that it all went out to nothing. Luckily we had the hotel man asked to keep the passport at the hotel safe. We got no money to buy anything and there would be no point to see the beautiful silk and lacquer. Should be careful everybody when shopping at this street!
