Is the shopaholic in you itching for some indulgence this holiday? Head to the pulsating markets of Port Blair for some serious shopping! Wear the collectors hat or simply pick whatever delights your heart, do come back with some lovely goodies for me as well! Markets in Port Blair you can shop at are:


  • Sagarika Government Emporium

    Walking into Sagarika Government emporium is like stepping into a dreamland of handicrafts. Stroll through this huge emporium looking at curious Coconut Lamp shades, Wooden Trays, Quaint Wooden Carvings and breathtaking Sea Shell Murals. Peep into the Nicobari section and you will be stunned by the tribal artefacts you see, ranging from Bamboo Items to Sea Shell Jewellery. The place is going to make you want to shop till you drop, so do make space for all of it in your luggage!


The best part about this place has to be that it is a fixed price outlet, you don't have to haggle or bargain!

Timings: 9 am to 5 pm, Monday closed
Address: MG Road
City Centre
Port Blair
Andaman and Nicobar
India


  • Aberdeen Bazaar

    Being the main shopping centre in Port Blair, the variety of goodies this market houses is a given. From daily household stuff to exquisite goodies that this place has to offer, it is the shopper's paradise. Pick up vibrant fabrics from this market which is a kaleidoscope of colours or head to one of the Parantha joints and sample some crunchy delicacies (Don't forget to try hit Lighthouse Restaurant, the food here is divine!), this is one great place to spend an activity filled evening in Port Blair. Do some looking, strolling, bargaining and shopping and take home a memorable experience.

    Two places which are must see here:

    Queen Sea Shell Craft (for beautiful bead and shell accessoriesand bamboo cane items) and
    Shopping Singapore (for fascinating tidbits and cheap electronics).

  • Government Emporia

    Dive into the myriad crafts of Andaman at the Government Emporia. Housing the best of the artefacts from all over the bundle of islands, this place is a great one to shop for souvenirs and gifts for loved ones. Pick up a Sea Shell encased Candle, Beaded Jewellery, meticulously carved wooden items like key chains and trays and many other fascinating what nots.

You don't come to Port Blair everyday, so let loose the shopper in you and shop till you drop! Pick up things to deck up your shelves back home and take back beautiful reminders of the mesmerising time you had on this holiday!
