How do you know Delhi as? Is it a place where the President of India resides? Or a place which is the capital of India?
Keeping aside all the seriousness of the city, when we come to enjoyment and fun, Delhi is the hub of it. For the best hangouts you have to explore your capital. I have made your work a bit easier by listing down some of the best places to hangout in Delhi.
- HKV ( HAUZ KHAS VILLAGE)
If you are active on social media, then you might have been a witness to various check-ins in HKV (our very own Hauz Khaz Village..yes.. V stands for village :p ). HKV is one of the most happening places in Delhi. It is a testimony to the collaboration of the past with the present. The place is indeed the best place to spend a weekend as you have a plenty of things to do. Walk down the alleys of history at the HKV fort. Sit by the lake and bask in the serenity of nature. Visit the deer park and watch the deers galloping and peacocks dancing. After all this, gobble up the delicious food in the exhilarating ambience of the HKV cafes and finally go and indulge in the exuberant nightlife of the place.
- Lock n Load Paintball
If you have seen the Bollywood movie Khoobsurat, then you might remember the last scene where Fawad khan was utterly surprised when he saw Sonam ranging around with a gun in her hand, in a setting that looked nothing short of a battlefield. If you too were wondering what it was, then let me tell you. It is the battlefield of paintball. If you are a group of more than six people, then do not miss on coming to this place, which is located in Pacific Mall, Subhash Nagar. You will have to dress up like a soldier and would have to battle a team of friends with a gun. Don’t worry, the bullets are just paintballs. So, Lock-Load-Paintball. (P.S. The scene of Paintball in the movie Khoobsurat was not shot here.)
- Adventure Island
If a roller coaster is all that you need, then let this place be your call. Situated in Rohini, Adventure Island caught the eyes of many when it was featured in Aamir Khan’s hit movie PK. This place truly justifies its name as you would surely enjoy the adventures that all the rides bring to you. So step up and go riding the fun filled ride.
- Pandara Road
It is 1 am in the morning, you are in Delhi. You are ravenous and wish to savor on really sumptuous meal beneath the bright moonlight. Just pick up your car, and drive down to the Pandara Road and you will find several other people like you who are splurging on the delicacies offered by Gulati. So take you car and drive to this epicentre where people flock to satiate their 3 am hunger.
- Connaught place
Connaught place is in the center of Delhi and is indeed one of the best places to hangout. Whether you are a die-hard shopaholic or a big time foodie, our very own CP is not going to let you down. Visit this place and it will cater to all your needs. It has some of the best cafes of Delhi including Starbucks, Hard Rock Café, Monkey Bar, etc. to name a few. Palika Bazaar and Janpath are some of the best flea markets of Delhi, so wear your shopping hats and go bargaining in these markets. And whenever you feel low on patriotism, just look up and there you would find the Indian flag soaring high above in the sky.
So no matter how hard it might be, Delhi always traces down way to enjoy the life to the fullest. Whether you are feeling low or wish to get high, the streets of Delhi will never cease to cater to your demand.
