What are the popular shopping joints in Kumarakom?

Kumarakom is a small cluster of islands where there aren’t any specific markets per se. But there are shops scattered around the place from where you can pick up articles made of coconut, bamboo, wood, bone carvings etc. There are colourful Kathakali masks, trinkets and other souvenirs that you can pick from here. Bargaining isn’t a great idea but if you are shopping in bulk, ask them for a reduction in price with a smile. Might just work!

For spices, sarees, dry fish, coffee powder, pickles, handloom and gold jewellery visit Kottayam (about an hour’s drive from Kumarakom) and Cochin (about 2 hours from Kumarakom) are good shopping hubs.
