Visited K-Road a couple times, great shops for the day time and few great restaurants and bars for the night. Night little strip with a bit of everything.

There’s many shops that offer adult entertainment, toys if you’re feeling kinky. Many “decent” shops don’t open till late so if you’re gonna be here by six, then you’re more likely to to be greeted with disappointment. :-)

During the day the street is a lively shopping experience with an eclectic range of shops. In the evening and night it comes alive with the smell of food and sights of revellers bringing joy and colour to the area.
