Unless you want a 'Maharaja Mac' stay away from the McDonalds. Stick to local food, its great. Drink only bottled water, unless you want an attack of the 'Delhi Belly' and eat street foods hot out of the whatever and cooked before your eyes,
Fondest memory: 'Chaat' at the South Extension shopping complex. Indian Tapas. Very, very hot. Guaranteed to clear your sinuses AND flush your insides the next morning.
Favorite thing: Visiting or watching market places interesting. So many things happen on these markets and there is so much to see that you can spend a long time here. This market, the Chor Bazaar, is located outside the eastern wall of the Red Fort.
if you are to visit then you have to do your homework first else you shall get a great culture shock.secondly you should know the people and the places you shall be dealing . rest will follow in line and you can hope to have a good time..
Fondest memory: the national museum is undoubtedly the best place for me but there r good markets with good food to roam around in the heart of the city
Favorite thing: This market that I visited with Anup. I bought far too much, but it was all great stuff. Cups, cushion covers, clothes, scarves. The best part of all was that no one was trying to convince you to buy anything. In some, but not all cases, you were expected to haggle, but walking around was pleasant. Where was this again!?
Favorite thing: have chaat in the bazaars. Chaat is a spicy concoction of various types. Main ingredients are red chillies powder (spicy), tamarind water(sour), pepper powder and a green chutney made of mint leaves (this is healthy!). Usually vegetables like bolied potatoes or fruits are tossed in this mix.
Get lost in the back alleys of Old Delhi.
Fondest memory: Taking a rickshaw ride into the spice market in Old Delhi. There where thousands of eyes fixated on us as we sat perched just above shoulder height. We were the only westerners around. Getting lost in a sea of gazes - never before had I felt so far away from home.
Fondest memory: A stroll in the Chandni Chowk. Opposite the Red Fort is the Chandni Chowk, one of the main markets of Delhi, a very crowded and busy place. On one end of Chandni Chowk is the Fatehpuri Mosque, erected by the wives of Emperor Shah Jahan. This square, once inhabited by the well-to-do families, is interesting for its lively atmosphere and it is one of the best-known wholesale markets for textiles, electronic goods and watches in the country, but at the same time notorious for selling fake goods.
