Planning yet Another Vacation!

by

It’s been just a little over a month after our fun trip to Mumbai and Goa, and here we are, planning another short stay holiday.

This time, we are thinking Delhi and Agra. Another close friend is getting married and we just cannot miss cheering him on πŸ™‚

My dad is also currently living in Delhi, and this was also the perfect chance to visit him and hopefully spend some quality time.

And now I come to the point of this post…I am spending 2.5 days in Delhi, and it being such a big city with so much to see and do, I really want some ideas on places to visit, and some fun (preferably child-friendly) things to do.

I have been to Delhi a long time ago, and we have already seen all the standard historical, touristy places (Lal Qila, Qutab Minar, and so on…). So, this time we really want to do something a little less touristy. We just want to chill back, enjoy the place, do a little shopping (maybe), and bring back lovely memories.

So, any suggestions? Please feel free to post your favorite spots to visit in Delhi. Who knows, it may become one of mine too πŸ™‚

  • Ya Amrit , Nishita I forgot the paranthe wali gali..Must visit ! U don’t diet and all na πŸ™‚ And it’s chilly so prepare for the cold winter, esp for the kiddo.

    Daryaganj (sunday book market) definitely the place for second hand books but be careful as they can sell pirated books to you , check books before u buy..U will get original second hand books at throw away prices.. Book lovers paradise πŸ™‚

    • Shweta, I did make New Year’s resolutions and all that to eat healthy…but come on, yaa Delhi is not the place to diet at all…

      So, Parathe wale galli, bring it on. Absolutely the best thing to gorge on when the weather is cold πŸ™‚

      as also Daryaganj…though I don’t know if K and snubnose will have the patience for it πŸ™

  • There are many Nishi. Sweta already mentioned Dilli Haat…I am sure you will love this place. Dont forget Janpath in CP..the heaven for women and you can bargain like hell. (Just try half the rate what they say). If you are a foodie….try Chandni Chowk (esp the paranthe waali gali) and there is one Haldiram as well. If you have a liking for non-veg…you cant miss Karim’s in Chandni Chowk (This restauarant has won several awards).

    I will rake my brains a little bit more…and I am sure something more will come.

    Oh yes..how can i forget this. If you happen to be there on a Sunday…dont miss out the street sale of books in Daryaganj. You will be amazed when you will see your fav books at Rs. 30 πŸ™‚
    It is one of the biggest second hand book market which only opens on Sunday.

  • i m so jealous of you πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
    I wish we could go too! But not now, and not for some months πŸ™

  • I think you should try Dilli Haat .. Food from different places and lots of arts and crafts from all over the nation.I just love the village market feel given to this place. You can also buy lots of trinkets and stuff πŸ™‚ Bargaining works !

    I am sure you will be going to Connaught Place πŸ™‚ Window shopping and all ! Your kid might enjoy Bal Bhawan but I haven’t been there in a while so can’t give you first hand info.

    If I remember anything else will let you know.More so I need to ask my little niece what are the happening places for kids as of now πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Shweta. Dilli haat sounds really interesting, and yes! we will be making a round of Connaught Place πŸ™‚

      Will check out Bal Bhavan on the web. Sometimes, these places start out very well, and then are not maintained properly. Well, that is the case with the one in Bangalore.

      Thanks for the tips πŸ™‚
