Shopping In India : Shopping Exotic Picks - 1

Guys, Shopping is an adventure of vibrant kind in India. Exotic images of an India, of silk, spices and saris are alive even today in quintessential bazaars where the passing of time has little meaning. Like some other aspects of India, its shopping experience is full of contrasts. Here chaotic and irresistible medieval shops in narrow lanes with a churning mass of cyclists, buses and deafening honks of fast-paced cars rub shoulders with sprawling modern shopping malls.

Visitors can carry home a slice of India's multi-faceted culture that thrives on its pulsating streets and malls. Dynamic satin cloth embroideries, roadside kitsch of grotesque leather masks and brilliant brass idols vie with ropes of bewildering beads and bells and an exhilarating array of enamel work. This explosion of colour and pageant is sure to take one's breath away.

India's miscellanea of shopping choices include spirited garments, textiles, metalwork, jewelery, furniture, brass, silver, copper, gold, silks and brocades, leather goods, carpets and an unending list of buys. With over a decade of liberalization tucked under its belt, India is also home to the latest in designer wear. The excellent value for money products, are sure to have visitors looking for an extra suitcase to carry home.

Although the best bargains are available in regions producing the specific handicraft, most products are available in major metros of New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad. The uninitiated traveler, not familiar with the ethos of the Indian market concept, will find the government-owned Central Cottage Industries Emporia, an apt introduction to the handicrafts of India.
