Punda is lovely. It is just like a postcard. All the colorful houses look like a cake. It is a good place for some shopping and also for drinking something.

Punda was a great little town to visit, must see! The colorful buildings were so Dutch. The city was decorated for Christmas so there were all kinds of Christmas trees and railings decorated throughout the town. Catch an "approved" bus and head to the beaches,...More

Love shopping in Punda! Eating at the Old Market was amazing and very authentic. Felt very safe and the free parking lot was very convenient.

I believe daily.
We are stopping here on a cruise and I was wondering how much time I should set aside to see the town? A whole day ? A couple of hours? Im wondering if we should plan something else to do during the day or the town is enough?

Maximum 3 hours, not very big place
Is Punda walking distance from the cruise ship pier? If not is there public transportation available at the cruise ship pier?

I would say yes; we walked it all. The whole area is very walkable; paved and basically flat. It also isn't really that big an area and no one is in a hurry.
