Delhi indeed is Shopper Paradise.No matter what taste and budget you have , you will always find something which will be of your interest or your liking.Delhi Shopping is an experience in itself and I value it more since the time I have settled down in Hyderabad.I won’t say that Hyderabad is bad when it comes to Delhi.I so enjoy buying the fresh dosa batter or buying those beautiful pearlsÂ but as born and brought up in Delhi I feel shopping in New Delhi is an ultimate fun thing to do..From porch shopping mall to crowded chandani chowk lanes.I have enjoyed buying stuff from these placesÂ through out my life.
So now I when it is the time to leave Delhi I thought of listing down five best places to shop in Delhi.
1.I first time visited Chandani chowk before Â my marriage and I was stunt with the kind of things available there.You can get best of designers saris, suit materials, jewellery and many other things at affordable rate.Only thing is that the shops in the area is not the big showrooms but they are small shops in by lanes.You have to do hard bargaining there .It has Sardar Bazar and Khari Baoli which are one of the largest whole sale market in northern region of India.
If you are a creative person then you can find ample material here for packaging , decorating and what not.The famous eating joints such as Â paranthe wali gali and then the dhai bhalla shop are some places which you shouldn’t miss out if you are taking an effort to go there.Well I am marking effort because it is not easy to cross those small lanes which crowded all the time and then you will have to pay attention to your pockets and beware of toutsÂ and Â duplicate products.But if you manage these things easily then this is one place you will get lot of stuff.Even bridal lehnaga of all range can be found here.
If you like to wear silk sari’s thenÂ check out “Ram Chandra Krishna Chandra” Sari Shop in Paranthe wali gali.It is one of the oldest and best shop in silk saris.
2.Canaught place referred as CP has good departmental stores and big show rooms.It has the famous underground palika market which has all the fake items available.Then there is Janpath which is a hang out place for teenage or college going.You can find latest fashion clothing there in very affordable price.Here also you need to have good bargaining power.In Janpath you can look for cotton garments and furniture and decorative pieces too.
If you visit Janpath then near to it is Cottage Industry Emporium which is an excellent place to look for handicraft and cottage industry.
3.Khan market is one of the upmarket which is an expensive place to shop.It is surrounded by beautiful Lodhi Gardens .Also, if you are looking for getting some sexy blouse, suits or dress stitching done then it is the write place to be in.Many shops have different range of material and you will not have to search for the tailor too.They are available in the shop to make any dress of your choice .You will have to visit the place after one week to get back your dress .Please don’t think they will stitch it then and there in minutes 😀
You can also check out Cafe turtle, Market Cafe and Fab cafe in these places too.
4.Delhi Haat is a nice place to spend your day .It has good handicraft shop .To enjoy the most there visit the place in the evening.It has some good eating joints and and time to time various festivals and fairs are being organised there.
Near Delhi haat is Lajpat Nagar central market which too has wide variety of things available for all kinds of shoppers.Lajpat is one place where I enjoy window shopping the most.
5.Greater Kailash 2-This market is also known as “M” block market which is located in South Delhi.There are many branches of well known brands there.You can buy high end jewellery, clothes , books and home decor items here.
