Where should we shop?

These are the markets that I am thing of:

Dilli Haat, Chandni Chowk, Connaught Place, Shankar Market, Janpath

Khan Market- sounds more upscale, is it worth seeing that area?

Hauz Khas Market- is this interesting?

Dastkar Nature Bazaar- Sounds interesting?

Going crazy with so many choices and only 5 days!

Asking for your suggestions!!

Forget Palika bazar and look at Chandni Chowk instead.

For souvenirs you may visit Dilli Haat (INA market),Rajeev Gandhi Handicraft Bhawan (Baba Kharagsingh marg,near CP), Central Cottage Industry imporium (infront of Janpath metro station,near CP).

If wants to buy some ethnic wear then https://www.fabindia.com is good option. Another option is kvic.org.in/kvicres/…index.htm in CP.

Chandani Chowk market is more for exploring than shopping,famous for ladies wear (specially Lahnga) but too chaotic.Cannaught place mostly have branded showrooms and restaurants/bars in classic 1933 building.Janpath can be considered as extension of CP,mostly private souvenir shop,be cautious dealing with them,bargain hard.Hauz Khas market dont looks special,you may have read about Hauz Khas Village,a good hang out area.Khan Market is more upscale,mostly brands,only reason for me visiting Khan market is food, specially "Khan Chacha".

Most Important -Beware of Pickpocketing" in all of these markets and metro.

For Carpets , You can look at CIE Cottage Industries Exposition at Barakhamaba Road. The best carpets from Kashmir they have .

For Jewellery , You can look in Karol Bagh area , Tanishq and Navras are good ones.

Lajpat Nagar market is great for ladies saree , Punjabi suits and dresses .

Old Delhi is a place , you can get everything there .

Happy shopping

First we want to go to the markets for the atmosphere that they have and the experience of being there.

For actual shopping, mostly Indian crafts and interesting articles.Interesting jewelry for a few gifts.

Not so much into clothing.

For crafts you can visit places shared in post#4,all are government operated stores.There are hundreds of private shops in Janpath near CP but you need to bargain hard.Lajpath or Karolbagh is good to feel the atmosphere where common Indian go for shopping.If wants to have glimpse of some upscale Indian market then can visit Khan Market or/and South Extension or GK M Block market.If visiting Dilli Haat then can explore INA market,Just opposite crossing the road.You may visit any branded jewellery store like Tanishq or Kalyan or Malabar gold.
