Along with the usual department stores and large shopping malls, Pori has a fine selection of smaller stores and boutiques, especially in the streets running off the town centre. Be sure to visit the town’s bustling market place where there are always bargains to be found, along with the freshest produce grown locally.

Between the beginning of May and the end of September visitors to Helsinki also have the chance to expand their culinary experiences by taking a ferry to the idyllic island restaurants situated in the beautiful archipelago. Here the menus will feature the freshest fish caught locally, as well as locally sourced vegetables and meat, and the dining experience is definitely enhanced by the wonderful settings.
