Often work takes you to places, but yet people don’t get the time to go and explore the place. You are mainly stuck between your hotel to your conference rooms and team dinners. But despite all these problems you can make some use of having to stay at a new destination.
The same kind of thing happened to me when I was visiting Lucknow because of a conference and my accommodation was in a hotel near the airport itself. So, the first thing I did was made a list of places to visit near hotels near lucknow airport and you will be surprised that my trip wasn’t a waste at all. It turns out the city has some good tourist sport close to the airport.

Here is a list of couple of places to visit:
  1. Bara Imambara- The Imambarawas built in the year 1784 and is also commonly known as the AsafiImambara because it was built by the Nawab of Awadh, Asaf-ud-Duala. The meaning of imambarameans a shrine. This complex was built by Shia Muslims for the purpose of Azdari.
  2. Hazratganj- Hazratganjis the heart of Lucknow. It is a major shopping area. So if you want to relax with some shopping then this is your place to do. You will find shopping complexes, different sorts of bazaars, restaurants and also theatres.
