Delhi stands out as a tremendous opportunity for all people that love shopping. The local markets are exotic and shopping in the city will be so much fun. When referring to India’s best markets, all of them are in Delhi, featuring handicrafts that come from all around this country. With this in mind, here are some really interesting shopping markets that you need to visit in Delhi.
This is a huge market in Delhi that looks just like a traditional village market, which is known as haat. There are many small thatched roof coy cottages and the entire market has a village atmosphere. You get the opportunity to see many handicrafts from all around the country, together with music performances. You also get to experience great food and can bay various artifacts that are tied to Indian culture.
This is a u-shaped, small market that is a classy choice for those looking for shopping opportunities in Delhi. You will not like it if you are a bargain hunter. Khan Market has a really loyal following that visits for the various branded outlets present. The book shops are great but you will also enjoy the presence of some really good tailors. You can buy skin care products, Ayurvedic food, Khadi and so much more. Once shopping is done, relax in one of the lounges there.
Janpath – Tibetan Market
This is quite a lively and popular market in Delhi. It recently received a complete makeover and features something that is perfect for every person that visits. There are goods available from Tibet and India featured. The problem is that you need to be prepared to negotiate since this is the only way in which you will receive a very good price. The market is opened daily and you can buy many things here including paintings, shoes, brassware, handicrafts, cheap jewelry and leather works.
There are so many bargain shopping opportunities in this market. It is quite chaotic and crumbling as a traveler ghetto with various shops offering exports to some countries and wholesale deals. We recommend that you visit this market in the event that you are looking for some inexpensive and unique goods that you can import home. Examples of what you can buy include music, books, clothes, jewelry, shoes, handicrafts, incense, pipes and hookahs.
This is actually an entire shopping district. It has been existing for a quite many years and you will find it that exploring the narrow alleyways will be a great adventure. Lanes are divided into bazaars that have different specializations. You will want to go to Katra Neel for fabrics, Bhagirath Palace for electronics, Dariba Kalan for silver jewelry and after you are finished shopping, you can enjoy the foods offered by dozens of vendors.
