New Delhi is the 2nd most populated city in the world after Tokyo and this city is full with people who love to travel, eat and shopping. So today we decided to share a nice post for the third category which are also known as “Shopaholics”
When you talk about shopping destinations in Delhi then we have more than 2 dozens of popular destinations but I would love to suggest only 4 of them which I visited last year on my trip to New Delhi. They are.
It is among the best shopping destinations for travelers and this place has variety of stores, emporia, restaurants, movies and malls. For cheaper apparel and jewelry there is Janpath market and for luxury ones you have main Bungalow Sectors and Jawhar Bhavan which are hub for Indian handcraft.
On Baba Kharak Singh Marg, you could buy Kashmiri Shawls, carpets, artwork, and gemstones and just next to it there is Palika Bazaar which is another area you could find best for shopping. However, the area is good for digital products, grocery, and cloths.
Like Janpath, the prices are low compared to branded manufacturers. If you like flea market, you could visit Chor Bazaar. However, make sure you buy quality product. The Connaught Place or CP as local calls it, remains closed on weekend.
M Block Market Greater Kailash
This market was developed in 1970s as part of Greater Kailash I known for M Block market and N Block Market. Now M Block is popular among the young people as it is full of fast-snack stands, kiosks, and retail outlets and if you like branded clothing then you have Benetton, Esprit, Sisley, Reebok, and Giovanni.
For Indian ethnic wear, L’Affaire is popular line of clothing. It is great place to shop for traditional jeweller with names like Hazoorilal and Rakyan. Place looks seductive during night and even if you simply go for a walk, you will end up buying one or two things.
