Superb quality, fixed prices, a must to shop 'hassle free'. Pashminas at around 100 USD, cheaper yet beautifule silk for less than 50 USD. Charming and knowledgeable owner

The pashminas are of a far higher quality than on the cliff and beautifully laid out - the staff will take as much time as you need displaying the different wraps and the shop is clean and air-conditioned - definitely worth a visit
