Things to do in Delhi

One of India's most celebrated brands offers Rajasthani block-printed linens and clothing in tasteful florals and paisleys at ridiculously low prices.

Stop in for beautiful crepe tops, silk dresses, and pearl jewelry.

Unbeatable access to experiences around the globe—learning firsthand about a family-run organic coffee plantation in the Galápagos; dining in a private home in Delhi—are woven into every walking-based excursion, from Ireland to Bhutan.

Love the jangling bangles you see on the wrists of every sari-clad lady in the capital?

Stop in for chic, often whimsical furniture, kitchenware, and china, as well as delicious-smelling bath products.

Conveniently located just five minutes from the famed Qutab Minar, the Crescent functions as Delhi’s Rodeo Drive or Madison Avenue: all the top Indian designers have shops here, including Rohit Bal and Ritu Kumar.

Delhi has several open-air craft markets, crowded with stalls and street food vendors.

Started in the 1970's, this family-run wholesale jewelry firm offers outstanding quality and value. Silver is the focus, along with precious and semi-precious stones like amethyst, tourmaline, and rose quartz.

South Indian–style gold baubles as well as silver boxes, bowls, chalices, and cups.

For a primer on antique Indian ornaments, arrange an appointment with jeweler Vinay Gupta, whose family has been dealing Raj-worthy gems since the 18th century.

The fashionable Khan Market is an upscale setting for Indian designer Ranna Gill’s contemporary women's clothing store. Her designs blend Indian styles and bright colors with a western edge.

High-grade, high-priced yellow gold and vintage textiles.

Come in for brightly colored shawls made of kashgar, a fine sheer cashmere gauze.
