This is not for everybody. You will experience chaos, traffic, smells, and noise in large quantities. But it won't get more authentic than that. If you think you can manage and... read more

Crazy .. ........with crazy driver in the cycle rickshaw. I would have like to go on a walkabout and saw some amazing things to buy. First timers will struggle best is to go with a local and get lost in the shops. Will come back for this with guts.

Almost indescribable, you have to be there to experience the noise, the smells, the bustle, the colourful shops and stalls, the poverty and so much more. We took a bicycle rickshaw around the busiest streets which were so narrow that daylight hardly got through. Definitely an unforgettable experience.

The place is full of colours. The hustle-bustle, the buildings, the food, the markets and many other things, are just amazing. If you wanna see Chandni Chowk without the people swarming the streets, visit on Sunday. I will also mention two hidden gems in terms of food-Pappe ki Kachori in Charkhe Walan and Chholey Kulche at Lotan near Chawri Bazar(Best... More

This is not for everybody. You will experience chaos, traffic, smells, and noise in large quantities. But it won't get more authentic than that. If you think you can manage and that is what you are looking for, you must go and walk around and experience it. I did, and loved every second.

If you want to savour life, this is an excellent opportunity although you may wish to take a tuk-tuk for some of the experience.

The only possible reasons to visit here are as a western tourist are for 'the experience' of something alien and mildly unpleasant or to go shopping for cheap stuff while being constantly hassled. I guess this place is like Marmite.

Very local place, nice stuff you can meet, don't expect good quality stuff, the items there meant to be cheap. You can find decent stuff for gifting. if you have to go alone be super careful, your bag on your chest all the time.

Although it is very crowded and lot of traffic problem but if you want to witness the true taste of "dilli" not Delhi.. then one should visit... on one single road you will find temple, Gurudwara, Mosque.. its unique.. lot of small food joints with establishment...
