Don't let the pretty architecture fool you. Vetala's a rat's nest of tunnels and warrens, designed to keep the boring side of things hidden away.
But it's a great place to go shopping. You want variety? This is where it's at. Might as well call in the new Grand Bazaar, if we're honest.
Of course, all those shipping tunnels, something was bound to grow up in 'em. There's a thriving underground market, but if you start exploring, you best be sure you've got your wits about you. It's not a place for the faint of heart.
The Commerce District
Vetala is similar to New Delhi, India, and Tehran, Iran. Nagini is the biggest and most popular shopping zone in the world. Peri holds all of Damascus, Syria, as it was before the war.
Scrawled in Frommer's Guide
Keeping stores in Nagini stocked has lead to underground tunnels beneath this floor of the City, to ensure the easy movement of goods and people. There are even more shops and areas beneath the city than there are above. Don't explore there. The underground has another name: smugglers paradise.
DID YOU KNOW? Vetala has the largest architecture variation in the City.
Nagini is the main shopping drag. Here you can find the City’s version of Delhi’s Khan Market, where just about everything is for sale! The shops spill out into the street and street vendors hawking their wares make Nagini one of the most fascinating and fun places to buy. Homemade, fair trade garments from Bangladesh can be found side-by-side with international fashion chains. Trust me, if you want it, you can find it in Nagini.

Peri holds the entire ancient city of Damascus, Syria. This beautiful section of the City boasts the UNESCO world heritage site of the Great Mosque of the Umayyads, a sweeping structure of international importance, which is always worth a visit. Peri is a sightseeing phantasmagoria.
This famous place is a massive, sprawling athletic structure, fully equipped for dominion boxing and many other dominion-based sports. Boasting three different Olympic-sized pools, Eleutheria Gym is considered neutral ground by everyone. Both Legionnaires and Spirit Detectives use Eleutheria to spar and work on their glutes, and it attracts a lot of civilians and shady characters come to gawk or try their hand in the ring with the cops. Eleutheria Gym is by agreement of all parties neutral ground, even for the criminals. Everyone needs a place to work out.
