A spa treatment would prove to be amongst the most refreshing things to do in summer in Delhi. Seaweed and mud body wraps are a great way to detoxify skin and reduce sunburns. We can also go for hydrotherapy and fruit-based treatments. We can try these at various spas like graces, R the spa and Kaya Kalp Spa.
Summer drinks and ice creams
We can treat ourselves with ice-cold sherbet or yummy kulfis. Khari Baoli in Old Delhi is amongst the places to visit in Delhi in summers for some lip-smacking delicacies.

Delhi bars and clubs
