imagine yourself walking in an area with several colors of people but entirely at ease, relaxed and equally eager to see what the walk reveals next, this was the most relaxed walk i have taken and seeing so many people from different parts of the world seemingly all moving peacefully and in sync with my none communicated holiday feeling. hah...

Very vibrant with stores to suite every shopper! Some stores a bit expensive all though for the international visitor maybe not too bad. There are plenty of franchise type restaurants to eat at at very goog pricing.

This is extremely touristy, but does include gems! If you're looking for handmade clothing, be sure to stop by Styles Africa and say "hi" to Rachel and her team. Reasonable prices and an assortment of ladies' and mens' clothing and accessories.

Didn't find this that great. If you want tourist items then it's OK, but I'd prefer to go to a market.
