Here are 10 things you must try while in Punjab.

1 When in Amritsar, do grab a bite of Amritsari Naan and papads(a special kind of chapati)

2 Do taste Lassi, the staple drink of Punjab. Prepared from thick curd, it has both sweet and salty flavors and make sure you have it chilled.

3 Experience the typical Punjabi khatirdari (hospitality) at The Heritage Village located in the outskirts of Jalandhar.

4 If you are an NRI Punjabi, make sure you carry back the holy water from The Golden Temple that is believed to have healing powers. Also, your visit to the shrine would be incomplete without having Langar (food at the common kitchen).

5 If you are a food freak, then Punjab is the place to be. Your meal would be incomplete without the Sarson da Saag and Makki di Roti.

6 Your shopping list must include the ethnic Punjabi jutti (shoe), done in fancy mirror work.

7 If you are wondering where to go on a Saturday evening, you can visit the following happening spots in town—Sector 17 in Chandigarh, Lawrence road in Amritsar and Crossing No. 22 in Patiala.

8 Check out the latest trends in fashionware and pick up some ethnic salwaar kameez (ladies wear), lehngas and phulkari (embroidered dupatta for weddings)

9 In case you get a chance, do attend a Punjabi wedding. It is an occasion where you can get a feel of the traditions, folkdances (bhangra and giddha), music and of course food-that goes without saying!

10 It will always be a unique travel experience even if you visit during different parts of the year. Like in spring season, trekking through the rural landscape would be a delight. If you happen to visit in winters, don't leave without participating in Lohri celebrations.
