Beautiful vacations always make one want to take back memorabilia from the destination. The serene beaches and colourful town of Port Blair will make you want to do the same. Let me tell you the best of souvenirs the place has to offer, to smooth out your shopping experience:

  • Wooden Carvings

    The artisans of Andaman and Nicobar show exceptional skills in wooden carving, producing delicately carved goodies from spoons to furniture. Brass paneling and gold trimmings increase the beauty of these curious pieces, which are fit to adorn the walls of your home.

  • Seashell Items

    When in the beach town, nothing betters the seashell curious you will find here. See jewellery of colourful seashells and beads, from bracelets to earrings to neck pieces, you will find a quaint variety in Port Blair. A word of caution: Seashell Jewellery is made legally here, but your country may have laws against it. Please check up on the same and only then indulge in shopping this as it could land you in trouble later.

    Apart from jewellery, you will also find showpieces of seashells, like candles and murals. Do make space for some in your luggage!

  • Bamboo Goods

    Small bamboo figurines and curious showpieces dot the shelves of the lively markets of Port Blair. These small knickknacks display the skills of the tribal artisans of Nicobar and will make for lovely keepsakes and gift items. Take a look at that the bamboo goods in Port Blair and be amazed with all that a craftsman could do with an ordinary bamboo.

Along with beautiful memories, take back lovely little nothings which remind you of the swaying palm fronds, blue lagoons and silvery beaches of Port Blair.
