Shopping Markets in Lahore

Shopping markets in Lahore

I still remembered the time when people used to shop in open markets. The joy of shopping on streets were tremendous. It is holding many colorful memories which include negotiating with the shopkeeper for prizes or finding the way through jammed maze to reach to the main road along of your shopping bags. And after getting tired, always tried to reached on open food shops and ordered for different items. Chat, dahi bhale, burger, paratha roll cold drinks and faloda were the main items of everyone.

The importance and joy of open shopping has its own place, although the development of high-end malls has destroyed the joys of shopping on the streets. But it made an easy way of shopping for people now a days. People get pleasant experience with air conditioned environment in malls. Anything is easy to get in malls.
