Delhi Shopping


No matter the age, every shopper loves a good bargain. Lucky for those, Delhi has some really cool spots where one can find a bargain all year round. The national capital territory of India, Delhi, never fails to disappoint when it comes to two things – food and fashion. There are a plethora of avenues for both. From the swankiest malls and shopping arcades to trendy shopping streets and flea markets, Delhi has more than enough options to get your shopping game on. 

College students and youngsters often have budget constraints, but that is no reason to not look chic and buy the good stuff. Delhi has numerous flea markets and street-side shopping avenues that can put the Kardashian-Jenner clan to shame!! (ok that’s pushing it, but definitely put you at par). If you haven’t already explored the fashion streets, get out of your hostels and PGs in Delhi and go crazy at these places.

These spots are not only inexpensive but also offer some of the best quality and stylish clothing items. Be it accessories, footwear, or clothes, these options are perfect to bring out your swag without burning a hole in your pocket.

If you are fond of handicrafts, artefacts, artisanal clothing, paintings, and lots of trinkets at affordable prices, Dilli Haat is the place to go. Its thatched roof décor lends a rural vibe to the place, setting the apt tone for the kind of stuff being sold.

They have food stalls selling delicacies of different states and our favourite is the root beer, momos, and thukpa at the North Eastern food stalls.
