We all keep hearing that Delhi lacks a great many cool things that Gurgaon can boast of, but we think it’s the other way around ‘cause Dilli is loaded with some kick ass things that the oh-so-famous Gurgaon DOESN’T have *YASS*! Give this list a read and fall in love with Delhi all over again!

Red Fort, Qutub Minar, India Gate, Lotus Temple, India Gate, Akshardham & so many more monuments, they all stand tall in Delhi and NOT in Gurgaon *sly smirk*! We Dilliwalas are surely proud of these architectural gems that make this city what it is.
Gurgaon waasis may have Leisure Valley and other small parks but feeding the ducks and watching the sunset while taking a walk in the Lodhi Gardens is something they surely miss out on! We mean, Delhiites have never-ending options like Nehru Park, Garden of Five Senses, Mughal Garden, Deer Park and so many more where we can just lounge around and enjoy the serenity.
Where | Lodhi Gardens - Lodhi Road, Lodhi Estate
Sarojini Nagar has been giving us major #ShoppingGoals since forever and trust us Gurgaon wallo, no shopping mall or centre can ever match up to the experience of shopping at this amazing market! Be it the always broke college kids or the I-need-new-clothes-everyday kinda ladies who absolutely love to shop, Sarojini Nagar Market, Janpath, Kamla Nagar Market and the M-Block Market are nothing less than shopping havens to them. From bags to cute shoes to funky boho accessories, these markets are always stocked up with all the latest fashion fads!
We Dilliwalas love the retro glam ambience of our beloved Big Chill - the cozy brick walls, the forest green sconces and those old classic framed movie posters *heart eyes*! With their mouth-watering Italian & Continental dishes (read - Baked Penne) and ah-mazing desserts, this place has got us hooked for life and we know this is something every Gurgaon-wala yearns for!

We know that Gurgaon has some great stadiums but they definitely don’t match up to the Jawaharlal Nehru & Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium levels! We mean have you ever heard of an international ODI between India and Australia happening in Gurgaon? See our point now? *Wink, wink*.
Dilliwalas have Delhi University, which is undoubtedly one of the best universities in the country *raising an imaginary collar*! In addition to offering world class education, DU stands proudly at the top when it comes to hosting annual fests, recreational activities, annual trips and obviously the amazing canteens *#BhukkadForever*!
So all ya Dilliwallo, looks like the city still has a lot in store for you!
