Agreed. Delhi has a less than a wonderful reputation as a travel destination, to miss out on visiting Delhi during a trip to India would be a big mistake. Take a Delhi Local Tour or try to explore it yourself any way you will explore something unique and unforgettable.
Delhi is a very different place it prides itself with the super malls, modern metro, the best markets for Indian wear to the old passage to the past old Delhi.
But if there’s one reason that stands out most to us as a reason to visit, it’s Delhi’s shopping. Shopping in Delhi is very different from anywhere else on the planet. It requires knowledge of the markets, what to buy from where, haggling skills and most importantly the local language.
The winding lanes of Old Delhi (former Shahjahanabad), bear testament to centuries of Mughal rule! Start your walk at the Red Fort, built by Shah Jahan in the 17th century, and continue towards Chandni Chowk, one of the oldest and busiest of Delhi’s markets.
When it comes to shopping there is something for every budget and interest. Delhi has over 20 prominent markets like Paharganj, Palika Bazaar, Janpath, Sarojini Nagar, Lajpat Nagar, Karol Bagh, Rani Bazaar, greater Kailash M-Block, Hauz Khas Village, etc. and check out Fabindia, Forest Essentials, Dilli Haat and Cottage Emporium for ethnic clothes, cosmetics, decorations, and accessories.
India has 28 states and every state has something unique to offer to the shoppers. The State Emporiums at Baba Khadak Singh Marg gives an excellent opportunity for foreigners to buy products unique to each state as per his/her liking.
The travelers cannot cover the markets themselves also if they have language issue they cannot haggle with the shop owners. A Delhi local tour by myway2india is required if you want to explore, buy the best at the best price. It will cover the cost by haggling, easy on the pocket with the best utilization of time.
This trip is unique as it has a personal shopper that will actually go with you, shop to shop. He will guide you and haggle with the sellers, in fact, he will bat for you. This person knows ins and out of every market and you will be always secure and protected.
The personal shopper identity proof shall be shared in advance with you.
