Try some offbeat activities

Go boating at the Purana Qila. Get to know your spices better at markets like Sadar Bazar and Khari Baoli (near Chandni Chowk). Have your minds blown with the Sound and Light Show at Red Fort. Watch the Changing of Guard ceremony at Rashtrapati Bhavan. Explore Indian Handicrafts at the low-key Crafts Museum. Btw if you’re an aviation geek, head to Jumbo Point in Dwarka. Why? To spot an endless flight of planes.

Get up close with nature

Who doesn’t love gardens! The open sky, large patch of greens, multiple grounds, and the evening sun - it’s just beautiful with your loved ones. Lodhi Gardens, Hauz Khas, Central Park, Garden of Five Senses, Jahanpanah City Forest, Deer Park, Indraprastha Park, Swarn Jayanti Park, Talkatora Gardens, are some open-air green patches in the city where you can cool it off in the summers. Speaking of Lodhi Gardens, don’t forget to check out Lodhi Art District too.

Take a tour of the city’s museums

History buffs, head here: National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA), National Rail Museum, Heritage Transport Museum, Kiran Nadar Museum of Art, and the Museo Photography Centre. P.S. One of India’s largest museums, the NGMA Delhi is home to over 2,00,000 works of art, history & culture. If you’re into arts go gallery hopping at India Habitat Centre, Delhi Art Gallery, Delhi Art House, Vadehra Art Gallery, and Nature Morte.

Hop on a bike and go cruising around Delhi

Whether it is to commute from one point to another or take a stroll through the city, e-bikes and cycles are a great way to do it. Day or night - anytime is a good time. Check out one of the rental services or tours to get started. We hear the popular Yulu bikes are just perfect for this.

Spend a day at an amusement park

If you wanna do it the old school way - head to Jantar Mantar. Ever since childhood that place has left as amused. But for a more new-age take of amusement head to these amusement parks near Delhi: Kingdom of Dreams, Rocksport, Worlds of Wonder, Adventure Island, Drizzling Land, Fun N Food Village, Delhi Eye, and Jurassic Park.

This should take care of your plans for now. We’ll keep updating, as and when we find more things to do in Delhi. Till then have a great time, and have a greater weekend. If you’re looking for more this weekend - click here to see everything that’s happening this weekend in Delhi.
