Flea market visit  

Tulshibaug, in the heart of the city, off the Laxmi Road, is a long street where you can bargain for anything and everything - from jewellery to cutlery. Youngsters head to the Main Street in Camp, especially on Sundays. If you are in the city on a Wednesday, do visit the Juna Bazaar (or Chor Bazaar, as it is referred to by many) - a weekly flea market. Hrishikesh Kanitkar

Pune specialties to take home  

Take back bakarwadi from Chitale Bandhu Mithaiwale and Shrewsbury biscuits from Kayani Bakery for your friends and family. These two items are immensely popular and synonymous with Pune. And gone are the days when you had to stand in long queues at one of only two Chitale outlets and hope that they didn't run out of bakarwadi before you reach the counter; Chitale now has franchise outlets all over the city.
