Brunswick St. shopping

If you’re in for some great shopping experience, you should visit Brunswick St. There, you’ll find a store named Fallow. There are a couple of interesting things about this boutique: a 1960s staircase leads to its antler-handled door; the basement-styled store is hidden; and it offers probably some of the best fashion and accessories in town. Drop by Heidi Go Seek and Incube8r if you want to take home some cute souvenirs. These stores offer various beautiful handmade arts and crafts.

Food tour

The streets of the Valley offer eateries serving a wide array of food. There is no reason to go hungry while on tour. You can find everything from coffee shops and hotdog bars to Japanese restaurants. If you feel like drinking, check out the back streets for milk bars and beer gardens.


For more of shopping and food tasting, visit the Chinatown mall. Here you’ll find various shops and eateries offering good buys at low prices. You can buy clothes and Asian goodies or enjoy a cup of tea, while enjoying the Chinese architecture.
