  1. Negotiate as much as you can on-street shopping.
  2. Take care of your goods while shopping.
  3. If you enjoy public transport, negotiate well.
  4. If you are going to Delhi for the first time or are unaware of the said place, then get information about the place from the police standing there instead of the passerby walking on the road.
  5. Can be reached by cab and metro from the markets. You can also travel by DTC buses which run from different parts of the city.

Conclusion: On a personal note, I have visited Chandni chowk many times, SN, CP, Janpath, Karol bagh, Palika bazaar, and many other places but Sarojini is one and area around DU north campus is nice to buy great stuff at cheap and best prices.

janpath is also brilliantly good for home decors, antiques and showpieces, good stuffy material of clothes, chandni chowk is also amazing so the overall rating of these places really depends on what you experience by your own at that particular place and moment because we all have different taste and interest about various products and items. so, one must visit is needed!
