Global Shopping Guide: Delhi
Follow Global Shopping Editor Dayna Spitz on her journey to Delhi where you'll discover her favorite insider, must-see shopping spots!
By Dayna Spitz
Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am a complete "Indiaophile" everything related to India, I love! Since Delhi is one of my favorite places to shop, and you can imagine how excited I was to do a video there. It's a city full of vibrant energy, history, beauty (some obvious, and not so obvious) and incredible shopping!
Yes, it can be challenging, chaotic and daunting at times even for the hardcore shopper like myself. However, it's the bedlam that makes the shopping experience so much fun! The beautiful textiles, excellent craftsmanship and incredible value make it all worthwhile.
Okay, so maybe shopping isn't the typical "spiritual" experience one associates with India. However, I've had my chakras cleansed, healers heal me and practiced yoga with yogis. Nothing compares to the feeling I get from a great day of shopping! Now, that's what I call the path to spiritual enlightenment. Namaste.

Aman New Dehli
An over-the-top luxurious property that exudes understated modern elegance, there are so many wonderful features at the Aman, ranging from the suites with private swimming pools (pure heaven) on the balcony, to the incredible contemporary art displayed throughout the hotel. Even though the Aman is a large property, it maintains an intimate feel with only 67 rooms. Plus, the location is perfect convenient to the best sites and shopping, yet far away enough to feel like you're in a private oasis within the city. Book it. You won't be disappointed!
