Old Delhi’s frenetic street bazaars are the shopping highlight of this neighbourhood, and indeed of Delhi. They sparkle with life, as well as with the goods they have on offer, and a visit to them is a brilliant blend of sights, sounds and smells. Most of them branch off Old Delhi's main artery, Chandni Chowk, itself a busy street market, and they sell everything from embroidered slippers and wedding bangles to paper kites and bright yellow turmeric. Not far away, Paharganj's backpacker-hub Main Bazaar is great for souvenirs, and its vegetable market is cheaper for spices than Old Delhi's famous spice market.
