New Delhi, as it is known today, designed by Lutyens, has various attractions which are worth traveling the globe for. If you haven't been to Delhi, then you have already missed a lot. The phrase "Delhi Meri Jaan" totally defines how the people living in the city feel about it.
Delhi is full of places ranging from historical and religious to amazing hangout places. A person living here feels amazing and blessed due to the fact of being living in such a complete place and being surrounded by a ton of humble people.

You’ll find a variety of food here. Ranging from chole, a spicy chickpea curry served from a golden upright gauntlet, served with either freshly cooked chapatis or a white bread that looks kind of like pita to Samosas, pakoras, and a variety of chaats (savory snacks) which are also very common throughout Delhi. Chandni Chowk is the central hub of street food, provides the most diverse selection all in one place where you’ll find a tantalizing quantity of interesting street food delights.

Hauz Khas is the modern day hub where lots of people go to just hang out with friends, and chat while sitting on ancients stones and tombs. Delhi has tons of ancient Mughal buildings of history that are just public and not fully preserved but are just part of the daily lives of residents. Located surrounding the entrance of the ruins, is an upscale outdoor shopping area filled with boutique stores, high-end restaurants, and a high number of cafes. If you are a foodie and sheesha lover then this might be the best place for you to hang out.

5) Dilli Haat – Handicraft Village
As everyone knows about the rich culture of our country. Dilli Hatt is the place where you can experience all the cultures all around the country in one place. It’s a bit like Asiatique in Bangkok, but less glamorous. Dilli Haat is kind of an outdoor shopping plaza where vendors sell high-quality Indian handicrafts in a friendly, safe environment. Dilli Haat is known (even for local Indians), as a nice place to sample Indian food from around the entire nation. I think there’s a restaurant representing each of the states of India.
