The place is full of colours. The hustle-bustle, the buildings, the food, the markets and many other things, are just amazing. If you wanna see Chandni Chowk without the people swarming the streets, visit on Sunday.

This is not for everybody. You will experience chaos, traffic, smells, and noise in large quantities. But it won't get more authentic than that. If you think you can manage and that is what you are looking for, you must go and walk around and experience it. I did, and loved every second.

The only possible reasons to visit here are as a western tourist are for 'the experience' of something alien and mildly unpleasant or to go shopping for cheap stuff while being constantly hassled. I guess this place is like Marmite.

Very local place, nice stuff you can meet, don't expect good quality stuff, the items there meant to be cheap. You can find decent stuff for gifting. if you have to go alone be super careful, your bag on your chest all the time.

Chandni chowk is one of the most famous place of delhi. Here you can get almost everything from clothes to books to awesome cheap foods. Famous for its name and shops this place holds a special place in my heart. Having been mentioned in numerous Indian films and movies this place is must see site in delhi.
