Been to the Jama Mazjid, Bara Imambara, British Residency and Rumi Darwaza and sampled the delicious shami and seekh kebabs in Lucknow? You still need a day to explore the core of the city through shopping. The shopping districts in Lucknow especially Hazrat Gunj and Aminabad are labyrinths that get denser and noisier as you go deeper. The smallest of shops here can boast of a variety of things. In the city of Nawabs, chikankari work on fabric, itr (perfume) and exquisite Jadau jewellery are absolute must buys. Tip: A shopping spree can be particularly motivating. Whether it is the urge to reduce weight to buy a dress you loved but could not fit into or the desire to try your hand at pottery on seeing a porter at a fair, shopping leaves you motivated and charged up.
