Shopping is one of the most common things to do in Kashmir. And no, I do not mean just antiques and other souvenirs. Tourists here can shop for exquisite Kashmiri handlooms and Pashmina shawls, antique copperware like samovars, Namda hand-woven carpets, local garments called Ferins, and expensive Doda Sapphire.
And then there are flowers, fruits, and vegetables sold on the shikaras in Dal Lake. More than the what you buy, how you buy will be the reason for your excitement here.
