If you happen to be on a shoestring budget this February 14th, here’s a list that comes to your rescue. Celebrate Valentines Day in Delhi for less, because while you can buy them gifts and fancy stuff, you can’t buy happiness. Read on to find out how to celebrate the Day of Love for little!

Chandni Chowk Rickshaw Tour

If you heard the amounts foreigners were paying for this tour, you’d probably lose your mind! Land up at Chandni Chowk on Valentines Day(it’s well connected by the Metro, you’re looking for the Chandni Chowk Station on the yellow line), and discover the old world charm of Delhi all over again! Take a rickshaw ride, roam through the Paranthe Wali Gali and Kinari Bazaar, buy her a trinket or two (not too expensive either), visit the religious places and seek blessings together and hog on street food like gluttons!

Cost: Less than INR 500 for two (Metro transportation inclusive)
Time: about 4 hours

New Delhi Museums Tour

There’s something undeniably romantic about Museums, specially the ones in Delhi. Make your picks based on her tastes and interests, but few museums which never fail to excite the ladies are the Doll Museum, the Rail Museum and the National Science Centre! Brush up on your knowledge about these places (internet is free!) and impress her with a trivia here and a fact there!

Cost: INR 400 or less
Time: Depending on museums, ~3 hours

Okhla Bird Sanctuary

This Valentines Day in New Delhi, take her to a completely new world, away from the city's hustle bustle. Make your way to Okhla Bird Sanctuary, and let the chirp of birds drown out everyday’s hustle bustle. Spot exotic birds(the migration season is still ongoing), enjoy the nip in the air of the dying winters, take a long walk in the beautiful reserve and spend some quiet time bonding, surrounded by tranquil serenity! Follow up with some piping hot bread pakoras and chai available easily, and you just had an awesome day! Small tip: If you’re taking the metro, get off at Noida Sector 18 and take an auto for the remaining 3.5 km.

Cost: Less than INR 300
Time: About 3 hours

Amazing plans in Delhi!
For people in or around Gurgaon I'll suggest the Leisure Valley park in sector 29. Free shows every day at 5.30 pm. Just for 0 rupees you can celebrate a romantic afternoon there.
