George Town

Artifacts is one of the most unique shops you will find in downtown George Town. They have everything from shipwrecked coins to jewellery, porcelain and cigar cases. You'll get plenty of personal attention from the shopkeeper, who's an avid numismatics fan. The prices range from a few bucks to thousands of dollars. You should make a stop here, even if you're not planning to buy anything.


Downtown George Town, right next to the cruise port, is where you can find high end jewellery shops as well as a few interesting and unique businesses that sell souvenirs made by local artisans. If you're staying a while, visit downtown on Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays when there isn't as many people around.
