The spectrum of shops in Delhi ranges from old bazaars to sprawling new malls. You just need to polish your bargaining skills for the street-side stalls & shopping will be so much fun. Delhi qualifies as “Trendy Delhi” because of the array of disparate products that cater to every individual’s need. Here are the shopping hotspots.

Karol Bagh

Being a thriving commercial hub, you could find almost anything in Karol Bagh. Ghaffar market, Arya Samaj Road, Bank Street & Ajmal Khan Road are abundant in hosting an array of products ranging from books, imported goods to jewellery. Don’t miss the food plazas.

Connaught Place

In the heart of Delhi lies Connaught place: a depiction of British style architecture. It is one of the premier shopping destinations presenting apparels, grocery, consumer durable goods, handicrafts and antiques. The famous Shopping zones within Connaught Place are The Inner Circle, Janpath, Baba Kharak Singh Marg and Palika Bazaar.

Dilli Haat

Dilli Haat is unlike any other shopping arena in Delhi. It is a portrayal of traditional Indian bazaar or haat where different Indians states display their traditional handicrafts, handlooms & cuisines. It is rural inspired demeanor represents India’s esteemed diversity.

Sarojini Nagar

Probably the most popular market with youngsters, Sarojini Nagar’s low prices & fashionable items is a definite hit. Negotiation is your poodle here. Grab footwear, home decor and furniture items, garments, optics, souvenirs & much more.

Chandni Chowk

These Mughal era markets are one of the oldest in Delhi. Crowded & packed within the narrow lanes are different bazaars with different specializations. For books & stationery, head for Nai sarak. Dariba Kalan is best for silver items. Bhaghirath Palace for medicines & medical equipments, Flea market for antique, Moti bazaar for Pearls & the list goes on. Don’t forget to taste the delicacies of Paranthe wali Gali either.

Khan Market

I was surprised to know that Khan Market is listed as 16th most expensive shopping locations in the world. It is an upscale market surrounded by the bureaucratic community. From sophisticated restaurants to excellent book shops to expert tailors to stylish boutique, they have it all.

    This is an important point for me. As an outsider I didn’t know where to go when I visited Delhi an year back. As I am planning to visit again, I will have to find a couple of days to go around these places too. Thank you for the information and my friends in Delhi are a bunch of lazy buggers who didn’t tell me anything about these places. 🙂
