There are several different types of street shopping that you can do in any given city. In Hyderabad however, you can shop for practically anything on the streets. As long as you’re ready to bargain and walk around the crowded bazaars, you will find all you need in the lowest of budgets. Here are a few must-shop places in Hyderabad:
If you’re traveling from another city you could visit General Bazaar, located very conveniently in the heart of the city, close to paradise, it has a variety of kurtis, salwar sets, stoles, bags and accessories. It’s not very large, just one street full of shops and bandis but you are sure to get a load of trendy things at very good deals as long as you can bargain enough.
Another stop for women’s clothing and beautiful silver accessories would be the well-known and loved Sultan Bazaar, being one of Hyderabad’s oldest street bazaars, it has grown in area and diversity over the years and will not disappoint you.
Have you heard of khara dupatas? Whether you have or not, you should buy them. While we’re at women’s clothing and accessories, how can we not mention the famous hyderabadi chudiyan? You will find the best of the colourful and glittery lacquer and glass bangles in Laad Bazaar. If bangles are not your thing, you can still choose from the variety of pearl and semi-precious earrings and necklaces.
If you visit Laad Baazar, you must also visit the Perfume Market that’s very close by. From attar to other kinds of locally prepared perfumes that are sold in quaint glass jars and vials you will surely find something to take home. Apart from having a beautifully lingering odour, they would make a classy addition to your dressing table.
The moment you step into this market your senses are overwhelmed with the fragrances, colours and sounds. Here you will get fruits and groceries at a cheaper rate than other places in Hyderabad, but there are also delicious sweets, fresh flowers and pottery grabbing your attention. And if you haven’t yet gotten the “Nizam feel” of Hyderabad, you’re sure to get it here with the wholesale attar, hookah and.. wait for it.. ammunition!
A trip to the 150 year old Begum Bazaar is a must on your list. You will find literally everything you could possibly want here. Ranging from household necessities to toys to jewellery. You name it, you buy it. By the time you’re done with all this street shopping, not only will you have a lot of good steals for everyone in the family but you will walk away having really experienced the one of a kind Nizam-essence of Hyderabad.
