When visiting Bhopal, do not miss dropping by the Museum of Mankind. The museum houses various open and indoor galleries, which have life-size replicas of tribal residence and communities. The materials they use have been transported all the way there and provides for a completely immersive perspective into tribal lives. The little souvenirs sold at affordable rates-handmade earrings, moulded stick figures, paintings-all of them will add a unique touch to your home. If the weather is pleasant, a trip to Van Vihar will give you a glimpse of some of the most colourful birds in India, in addition to the leopards and lions. The traffic isn't too bad, and if you're on a long trip, a visit to Bhimbetka Caves and Sanchi Stupa are an absolute must! They're some of the most fascinating monuments the country has to offer (Paleolithic carvings and Buddhist sculpture), and if you really start missing your Metropolitan hometown, find recourse in DB Mall; the youth of Bhopal throngs there, but it makes for some good old shopping experience.
