Shop, dine, or grab a cocktail in the center of Delhi—literally. Connaught Place, or CP, is one of the largest business and financial centers positioned in the epicenter of the city. There is an eclectic mix of local stores, international shops, luxury retailers, restaurants, bars, and food stalls. This is also a good area to facilitate any banking needs, including currency exchange.
Test your bartering skills at Palika Bazaar, an underground, air-conditioned market located between the inner and outer CP circle. If you prefer staying above ground, sample a pastry at Wenger's Bakery or stop by De Paul's for a creamy cold coffee famously served in a glass bottle with a straw.
