Best Shopping in Delhi, India


Shopping in Delhi

Whether you’re looking to browse through a bustling market or shop in style at an upscale boutique, Delhi has some of the best shopping in India. Here are some of my favorite places to shop in Delhi:

Dilli Haat
Aurbindo Marg, New Delhi

This open-air market costs 100 rupees to get into, but that’s mostly just to keep the touts out. Once inside, you’ll find yourself in a bustling market full of stalls selling everything from colorful bangles to silk saris. The food court is large and you can find everything from traditional northern Indian food to Chinese.

Khan Market
Near Lodi Gardens, New Delhi

An upscale shopping market in central Delhi, Khan Market is home to shops selling high-end clothing, jewelry, and home wares. There are also restaurants at Khan Market that serve up good Western food. Try Choko La for food, Amrapali for clothes, and Good Earth for home goods.

Sundar Nagar Market
Mathura Road, Delhi

Another upscale shopping destination in Delhi, Sundar Nagar Market offers an array of clothing, jewelry, and food shops. Among them is Baci, which serves up delicious Italian food that travelers weary of Indian food can indulge in.

Emporio Shopping Mall
Nelson Mandela Marg, New Delhi

Like the name suggests, the Emporio Shopping Mall in Delhi caters to the well heeled traveler in India. With a Cartier boutique and other upscale shops, this is the mall to visit if you are looking for Western luxury stores in India.

Taj Banjaar Tola Lodge, Kanha National Park

Opened in 2009, the Taj Group’s Banjaar Tola safari lodge is all the luxury you could ask for while on safari in India’s Kanha National Park.

Situated on the bank of Madhya Pradesh’s Banjaar River, the Banjaar Tola is a luxury camp that allows guests to be at one with nature while still retaining the normal luxury associated with Taj hotels.

Each of the two camps at the Banjaar Tola features nine suites and a tented sitting area.

Suites are decorated with bamboo panels and floors, furniture made of local wood, and textiles made of organic cotton and silk.

When you’re not enjoying the luxury of your Banjaar Tola camp, the lodge offers two safari game drives a day in Kanha National Park.

The lucky few will spot a tiger or two!

The Banjaar Tola also has naturalist on hand to answer your questions about the flora and fauna and to point out various endemic species to you along the way.

Double rooms at the Banjaar Tola start at 60,000 INR, and the lodge is all-inclusive.
