Visit to any place is incomplete without shopping, don't you think?Although Munnar is not a famous shopping destination like other parts of Kerala, but it does have a few local markets and factory outlets from where you can shop.

The tea and spices can be bought straight from the factory outlets are very reasonable rates and the best part is that you can get the freshest and the finest stuff. Especially if you are keen to shop for tea, then go to
KDHP (Kannan Devan Hill Plantation) to shop from the factory outlet itself. Since some tea varieties are not easily available at regular markets, making a visit to KDHP allows you to indulge in some exotic flavored tea shopping experience here, a true paradise for a tea connoisseur. Apart from tea and spices you can also shop for Eucalyptus, Lemongrass and Citriodora.

You can shop for various knick knacks from
the local market where you will find piles and stacks of fresh fruits, rice, spices, and tea. Top Station has a collection of rare fruits, try them. Do buy the aromatic and fresh spices from the market. Apart from that you can also shop for traditional Kerala items, like the Nilavilakku (a traditional lamp), which is considered auspicious on any occasion. Earthen utensils are popular shopping items in Munnar, apart from the bronze and copper utensils and artifacts.

Another popular items include Indian-made foreign liquor which can be purchased at affordable prices, hand crafted models of snake boats and sandalwood artifacts, these make memorable souvenirs. Buy these from the well known handicraft shops in Munnar which are Johnson`s Wood Craft workshop, Kunjithanni and Deeja Gift House.

Remember to buy the locally made items rather than branded ones as the former are unique to this place. You can find several Mangalore to Munnar cabs, as former being the nearest city.
