India... here we come!

Tuesday, September 9, 2008

Been occupied for many days now. I have a few more thesis to go before the semester break. That's a relief. We are also planning a trip to India early '09. I can hardly contain myself. It's my first trip ever! I am very excited! But I would need some suggestions:

Venue: New Delhi & surroundings

1. Places that I must visit & why?

2. Shopping venue for (home decor, personals etc)everything a girl loves?

3. Shopping must-haves (suggestions)?

4. What food must I try and suggestions on venue?

5. Do's and Dont's.

6. Tips, suggestions or advice?

Drop me a comment. I would love to know more about India and get an early head start on planning for the trip.

Palika Bazaar, CP, LaL Bagh, Fatehpur Sikri, Doll Musuem, Rail Museum,

Shopping Venues:

Khan Market: Very good Indian and western wear from the designer and non standard line)

Sarojini Nagar: Cheap, export rejects ( with close to no defects, so so cheap) Amazing food ( you need to be sure about your stomach though)- Loads of bargaining

Janpath: Another not to miss place for amazing personals and antique jewelery- Loads of bargaining


Kurtas, Indian batic print tops, stolls and Bandhini dupattas, Indian jewelery (janpath & sarojini nagar)3


Haggle with autorick guys, they wil just refuseto go by the meter. But always check with some people around the place how much it would cost to a place before talking to the auto guys ( in case you do not know the price)

Will drop in the rest if I think of something more:)

>>> Hi Aathira - thank you for dropping by on my blog and for the suggestions..Wow, they are many and I truly appreciate your intricate descriptions on each bullet points. Would take note and visit the places you've mentioned and update you on it. I love ethnic jewelery, bandhani dupattas and modern kurtis. My, you have picked out items on most of my 'to-do' list of shopping. Thanks once again and do return for more snippets here on my blog.
