The small shops sell a variety of products from cheap souvenirs to artwork, jewelry and branded fashion items. The white-washed houses have terraces and brightly colored doors and windows. You will see Bougainville trees in bloom as you walk the cobble-stoned streets. Also there are many boutique hotels in the area. Enjoy the walk and get lost to find something unique.
