For an end of the world shopping experience, the markets of Lucknow are hard to beat. Whether you have the shopping bug or just want to experience the real hustle and bustle of an Indian city, Lucknow markets are the place to be. Get cash and be prepared to haggle. Though all markets in Lucknow carry almost everything, most have their own distinctive offerings and personality.

Traditional knick knacksHazratganj is the more well heeled market with its branded offerings and swanky showrooms full of fashionable clothing. Aminabad is a shopper’s paradise with its showrooms and shops spilling over with sarees, traditional wears, chikan garments and bridal wears. Reasonably priced and with immense scope for bargaining, you can get your choice of quality and quantity without burning much of a hole in your pocket. Jewellery including ethnic jewellery and imitation jewellery is another attraction of Aminabad. Jewellery can be a bargain here, particularly gold and silver, but bargaining and a critical eye is required. There are also especially good buys in hosiery items, ceramics, hand stitched embroideries, handbags and antiques. Some of the best chikan wear and garments of Lucknow can be found at Chowk, which also has a good selection of jewellery shops.

Window shoppingBhootnath, Alambagh and Sarafa market are three other popular markets to head to for some more browsing and sidewalk shopping. Lucknow is a shopper’s city. From uniquely Lucknawi products to international brand-name items and luxury goods, at venues ranging from modern department stores to open-air markets and sidewalk stalls, you name it and Lucknow’s markets have it all. Some of the best buys that you will make in Lucknow are likely to be from the tens of thousands of privately run shops that dot the markets, from the unique one-offs to the fly-by-night outfits. On a typical day, colorful open-air markets, alley bazaars and street-side vendors spring up in the evenings, offering more traditional arts and crafts, collectibles, and clothing at low prices. Curios, crafts, collectibles, antiques and jewellery, are all here for those who are willing to bargain hard.

Even if you are not much of a shopper, it's still worth joining the fray (preferably with all your wits) to witness, if not join in, Lucknow's favorite pastime.

Apart from shopping, there are some other exciting things to do in Lucknow.
