Shopping In Trinidad & Tobago


Trinidad Shopping Overview

Modern shopping malls populate Trinidad's shopping districts at Frederick Street, Independence Square, Longcircular Mall , West Mall, Valpark Plaza and Trincity Mall in the east and High Street and Gulf City in the south. The stores at these malls and inside the islands' major hotels uniformly provide charming, efficient service and quality imports. Trinidad's famous carnival is the reason why the island is awash in beautiful fabrics - should you be so inclined, an eager seamstress will stitch a dress from raw material.
