Pansari Bazaar, Jaisalmer, India


Pansari Bazaar is Jaisalmer’s oldest market, which is saying something when you consider the age of this ancient Rajasthani gem. Prepare yourself for sensory overload – the colours are bright, the sights, sounds and smells are bold, and the vendors are brash, but well-meaning and cheerful. Shop for stunning textiles and remarkable art that cannot be found anyplace else in the country, and rub elbows with locals and families that have called this ancient fort city home for generations.
