    Must see markets and places in Delhi

    I am in Delhi from 9th Feb to 16th Feb and it would be my first trip to this city. Can you suggest me some of the must see markets and places in and around Delhi. I am looking for some North Indian clothes, handicrafts and maybe some must eat food joints. Till now I am enjoying my stay in Mumbai and looking forward to catch some memorable moments in Delhi too.

    Clothes as in traditional clothes? If thats what you mean I don't know what that would consist but you can have some good Indian food at Delhi Haat (near INA market) where you can get all sorts of street foods from different parts of India and the place is well kept and you can also buy handicrafts there but make sure you bargain and start with 50% of what they ask for.
    If you are looking for good restaurants then Cannaught place would be a good place where there's a restaurant called "The Host" not too costly and food is exceptionally good. If you are willing to shell out a little extra then Bukhara at the Maurya sheraton near Dhaula kuan serves some wonderful North-west frontier cuisine (Almost Indian). There are lots of eating places across the city so it would help if you know which part of the city you would be staying then I can suggest you some good ones nearby.

    Few places which I can suggest are:

    Dilli Haat (for handicrafts and food)
    INA Market (for daily needs)
    Sarojini Market (for clothes and window shopping)
    Khaari baoli (for spices)
    Chandni Chowk (for food and antiques)
    Paharganj (good for nothing)

    Yes Gaffar Market is good to buy used/second hand mobile phone but otherwise its over crowded I think.. Karol Bagh is another spot where one can enjoy shopping and good food (taste of Delhi )

    There is a fair every year in September-October every year at Suraj Kund where you would find lots of traditional handicraft and traditional clothes and what not. It is a good place to spend your day or even 2-3 days in a row as the setting is rural and peaceful and you can even stay there at the Guest house that is run by ITDC (or was run by itdc) There is a resturant run by Ashoka where they have some quality food and there are some small trails where you could go walking in the mornings if you do decide to stay a few nights. The kund or pond isint much to talk about but when it has good amount of water it looks good.
