Deans Shopping Mall

If taking to the shopping streets proves overwhelming, Deans is a viable alternative: much less hectic and plenty more organised, one of the city's largest shopping centres houses thousands of shops selling everything under the sun, from quality fabrics to electronics.


Shopping is an art form in Peshawar, where avid bargain-hunters will feel right at home. Haggling is well-expected at markets (initial prices can be easily brought down by at least a third), and is even acceptable at some shops where prices appear to be fixed. Items to look out for include traditional chapli sandals, Afghani pakol (wool hats), pottery, brass and copper wares, quality fabrics, woven rugs, and more. Note that some areas, such as the Smugglers' Market, are best visited with a local guide.
