Bring plenty of time when headed to the Emporium Mall, for its shopping toils aren't easily escaped. Apart from ample local and international-brand stores and restaurants, the mall contains a cinema and kids' entertainment centres. Daily visitors number in the tens of thousands, so peak hours (weekdays after 5pm) and weekends might be best avoided.
Shopping opportunities are abundant in Lahore; in fact, entire city neighbourhoods are taken over by stores and vendors peddling all manner of goods. Items worth purchasing include gold, silver and precious stone jewellery, silk and textiles, carpets, pashminas, leather goods (including footwear), spices and cooking paraphernalia, and more. Remember to haggle, for prices are rarely fixed outside of major modern shopping malls.
