Hawking and gawking is an essential pastime at the floating vegetable and flower market on the Dal Lake. Help your boat along by nudging aside shikaras as you make your way through the bustling market in the wee hours of the morning. With a friendly word for all, and scrumptious snacks, vivid flowers and local produce, you’ll leave with more than a cabbage and a pretty picture.
It’s hard to tear your eyes away from the thumping, beach-party-all-night lifestyle of Goa – even to go shopping! That’s why the kind folks at Arpora have a flea market set up every Saturday, where you can sip on daiquiris and listen to a live band while you peruse the flowing beach gowns or sun hats for sale, that only Goans make so well.
