Lucknow, the capital city of Uttar Pradesh, is located in what was earlier known as the Awadh region. Lucknow is set on the great Gangetic plain, which ensures that the city experiences extreme climate, with cool winters and blistering summer months.

The Gomti River which runs through the city, splitting it into two, adds to its laid back characteristic. With air tickets getting cheaper, air travel is the most convenient way to travel to Lucknow.
