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.
