Whenever I travel to a new city, I usually make enquiries if the city has an old market. It is here that you get to learn the best about the culture of the city.

Aizwal was no different. We spend the full morning in Bara Bazaar, a very popular flea market in Aizawl, which also happens to be the main shopping place for the town.

The market is on many levels like the city and is full of colorful clothes, vegetables, meat, fresh produce and handmade wicker baskets being sold by villagers from nearby villages. With so much on offer, no wonder it is the most popular place in town.
