We are your Delhi Shopping Guide and can tell you where to shop and what to buy.
Shopping in Delhi is an exciting and exhilarating experience. Delhi is the ideal shopping destination for brides splurging on expensive bridal trousseau, tourists looking for exotic memorabilia, as well as penny-pinching budget shoppers who revel in flea markets, street shops and bargain sales. It is a shopping paradise where everyone will find something unique.
The Delhi Shops are home to a fascinating range of products that people from all over would love to see, touch, feel and ,of course own.
The labyrinthine lanes of Chandni Chowk in Old Delhi will lead you to treasure troves of traditional Indian apparel, including the wedding lehangas (traditional bridal wear),jewellery and other accessories. Some of the best bridal wear shops of Delhi can be found here. If there is a wedding in the family, you should head to Kinari Bazaar,where you can shop for an astonishing range of gift boxes and trays and other ‘must haves’ at Indian weddings .For new and old silverware, Dariba Kalan is your best bet.
The Central Cottage Industries Emporium in Connaught Place and the State Emporia in Baba Kharak Singh Marg ,provide a panoramic overview of products from all over India, while the Dilli Haat dishes out the flavours of rural art and craft from across the country. Delhi shopping is incomplete without a visit to the State Emporiums & Dilli Haat.
If you are in South Delhi, big brands are housed across the Emporio Mall, the Promenade Mall & the Ambience Mall in Vasant Kunj and exclusive fare with expensive tags can be found at Khan Market. A visit to Hauz Khas and Shahpur Jat markets is a treat in itself as shops are hidden inside old havelis and ruins of monuments. The antique handicrafts, designer wear and ornate curios that you may purchase will be things to cherish for life.
If Santushti Shopping Arcade with its chic elegance awes customers with a string of boutiques, Janpath with its colorful trinkets and noisy vendors charms foreign tourists in particular. Serious bargaining and cheap deals are easy to come by in Sarojini Nagar, Lajpat Nagar and Karol Bagh markets,where local shoppers throng as well. Some of the best gold jewellery shops are found in Karol Bagh.
Delhi shopping is not the same after the advent of these malls.
Remember, Delhi is a city steeped in history. Wherever you go, whatever you buy, you will be carrying a piece of its unique culture or history back home.
Delhi shopping is a very gratifying experience. Come & enjoy the fun.
