What are the things to buy in Kumarakom?

Shopping isn’t the biggest highlight in Kumarakom but you can pick up a few souvenirs and trinkets from the local shops around the corner. The showpieces, pencil holders and masks make delightful souvenirs. You can also pick up trinkets and pendants made of camel bone carving and wood. And, the bamboo and cane articles make pretty mementoes for homes and will keep reminding you of the refreshing visit to the backwaters. There are also pretty coir mats, antique pieces, jewellery, ethnic wear and hand woven fabrics.

The good thing is that you don’t have to spend endless hours shopping but a quick visit to these local shops will give you enough for everyone back at home.

If you are keen on some extensive shopping, head straight to
Kottayam which is about an hour’s drive from here. You’ll get everything from silk sarees, spices, coffee, dry fish, pappadams (papad without pepper), ayurvedic products, coconut oil, kerala halwa, gold jewellery, fish pickles and souvenirs there.
