  • Great for photos and souvenirs. Pelican Village's bright buildings are a nice tourist attraction. Though not all the shops are open still there are some beautiful craft pieces. On a sunny day, very nice place to walk around with 1 or 2 restaurants. There is also a nice park to walk through across the street.
  • Had a productive time at The Monkey Pot and found 2 lovely pieces to send abroad. Whenever I am looking for something local I always go to the Monkey Pot where the owner is extremely helpful in showing me beautiful pieces to purchase.
  • Very nice. But sad that so many great store places have closed up. The ones that are left, we checked them out,very nice bought a few things. The people are soooo very nice.
  • Disappoiting. Most of the shops were closed down! i.e. not in business.
  • Good to wander aroundthe various different shops and 2 nice bars
