Pettah

In this loud, crowded, chaotic potpourri of ethnicities, you can find pretty much anything you need in any size or shape you want. Cheap electronics, silk sari’s and dried spices side by side in one Big Bustling Market Bazaar. If you look carefully, you will even be able to find artisanal goods or hand-crafted jewellery for bargain prices. Grab a king coconut as you walk, take in the sounds, smells and sights and observe local life at its most intense.
