Lajpat Nagar Market, Delhi

Let’s start with the capital because India tourism mostly starts from here. Lajpat Nagar market opens every day, except for Mondays. If you go during the weekends you will find the full fledge or during weekdays to have some breathing space. 

Anything and everything is available here, and you can find the best and the expensive brands. Jeans, t-shirts, watches, toiletries to very India kitchen utensils to some really delicious Indian street foods, Lajpat Nagar, has a big menu to choose from.

Lal Chowk, Srinagar

This is the most popular shopping district of Kashmir and has been featured in several movies as well. You can buy the famous Pashmina shawls here or even jewelry, dry fruits, carpets, woolen clothes and much more. Booking an all-inclusive Kashmir tour package to benefit from the shopping experience here is surely worth it. 

If you end up buying a few Pashmina shawls it will break even your trip and you can even sell them at a premium back home, making good profits. While you are there, you might as well even book a Leh Ladakh tour package and make the most of your time in North India. 

Charminar Market, Hyderabad
People visit this place to pick up chudis and bangles. But I tell you, this densely populated Muslim area with equally dense shops has much more to offer than that. There are loads of shops for clothes, fancy items, accessories, traditional and ethnic Indian garments for men and women, upholsteries, and more. 

At night, with all the shops turning on their bright lights on; the streets it look fantastic, like the “city of lights”. Roaming the market on foot is possible only with constant jostling, once you are tired and done with shopping, ask the local autowala to take you to Shadab restaurant for a mouth-watering, Hyderabadi dinner.

Aminabad, Lucknow
A very affordable city to live in or visit, Aminabad and the famous ‘chowk’ would greet you as the shopping district of Lucknow, leaving behind the modern Sahara Ganj. You will hear refreshingly pleasing Urdu greetings floating around, and the old ‘nawabi’ etiquettes still live on, somehow, in this market. 

Many blogs about India tourism mentioned that this place traditionally famous for ‘Lucknow Chikan,' the hand embroidery and you can find sarees, kurtas, salwars and even shirts, with Chikan work on them. Don't miss the famous baker here and the outlet of Sugandhico, both of which are so delicately appealing. These shopkeepers pick up outsiders from the accent, and unless you can copy the Lucknow accent perfectly, it would be best to find a local friend to be your guide.

Barabazar, Kolkata
Whatever discount you can find online, at least, meet it, if not better it. Barabazar is the wholesale and retail hub of Kolkata and every native who want the perfect price for the perfect goods would visit here. Divided into different zones, there are branded and unbranded garments, perfumes, fancy items, accessories, utensils, electronics, antiquities and more to choose from. To cater to the national crowd, Barabazar speaks Hindi well so being in Bengal wouldn't cause a problem either. Even though you find a signage showing “No Bargaining” well they are very much open to bargaining.

These are all metro cities, and you can find package tours for these cities from Yatra and more. Buying tour package in India will be a good idea also especially for some that can’t communicate in Tamil or Hindi, let the tour company take care of everything while you concentrate on having fun, enjoy and shopping.
