Eat, Walk & Shop in intriguing South Delhi

Tripoto
20th Nov 2014

Its a compact trip, set in heritage monument in the heart of South Delhi. The location gives great access to some fantastic views, food and shopping opportunities.

1) The trip starts with a nice morning walk at Lodi Gardens, a beautiful monument in the heart of Delhi, surrounded by lush green gardens and bird watching opportunities.

2) Once done, head to All American Diner at India Habitat Center for a fabulous American breakfast - absolutely delicious hashbrown with corn, pancakes and what not.

3) Next, visit Qutub Minar and all its grand glory.

4) Next stop is Dilli Haat where you can shop till you drop, all the lovely handicrafts and delicious Indian food from all across the country.

5) Once you are done with shopping, last stop for the day is Hauz Khas village. If you reach before sunset, you can catch a glimpse of the lake and the monuments surrounding it. Worry not if you are not into more monuments as this area turns into a happening night spot (with multiple restaurants serving an array of local and international cusines) as evening sets, still giving you plenty of opportunity to enjoy your evening. If Dilli Haat did not satisfy your shopping urges, this area host a lot of high end bouquets and you could try your luck here. Finish your evening with drinks/dinner here.

The monuments tell a story about Delhi and bring out the explorer in you. The gardens are huge and invite a lot of morning walkers and joggers. The birds are always a pleasure to watch.
Great place for international breakfast.
Its a very popular historic monument. The tower 100 mts tall was one of the tallest of its time. A visit to Delhi is incomplete without coming here.
Its the best place to experience a slice of life of the people of Delhi. The Dilli Haat at INA remains as one of the most popular places for shopping for Indian Handicrafts (at competitive prices as they are directly sold by the artistes). The atmosphere is very vibrant and you can get a taste of food delicacies from across the country. Do note that there is construction work underway due to which a small part of the complex is closed. You can face mild inconvenience.
Dont go by the name, the whole area is called Hauz Khas village. If you reach before sunset, you can catch a glimpse of the lake and the monuments surrounding it. Worry not if you are not into more monuments as this area turns into a happening night spot (with multiple restaurants serving an array of local and international cusines) as evening sets, still giving you plenty of opportunity to enjoy your evening. If Dilli Haat did not satisfy your shopping urges, this area host a lot of high end bouquets and you could try your luck here. Finish your evening with drinks/dinner here.
