Chandni Chowk is a crazy busy shopping area worth visiting. I got some of the best samosas of the trip. And there is lots of shopping.

The famous place of Mugal Era is dusty, dirty and garbage everywhere. Famous for worship place of almost all religions and shopping has no place to stand or walk. This is full of construction debris and hope authorities will do something.

You really can pay anything as they’ll make your date to your own design. You can be sure you won’t get them cheaper anywhere else though!!

Best markets to buy wholesale (2 Replies)
Hi, I'm traveling to Delhi to buy goods to sell in my home country. Normally I buy jewellery and fabrics in Paharganj Bazaar and Chandni Chowk but I'd like to know if there are any other markets good for this kind of products.

rather than buying from Delhi, you can check the rates in Jaipur as Jaipur has the biggest precious stone & fabrics industry in Sitapura and Sanganer Industrial area

For Day 1, it is better to move around with a Cab. You can expect the trip to be for full day. For Day 2: It is better is to take the metro, rickshaw & walk. You can be free in 1/2 day.
