Eschew the air-conditioned shopping malls and head instead to Dilli Haat in the centre of the city. This open-air market has stalls selling handicrafts, textiles and souvenirs from all over India. Exquisite handwoven shawls? Delicate embroidered footwear? Semi-precious jewellery? Cheerful lamps and earthenware? This is where it all comes together. And be sure to bargain. When you’re shopped out, sit down to an outdoor meal at one of the many stalls from India’s various states and territories, from Kashmir to Rajasthan to Tamil Nadu.
