To explore a new and unique side of Delhi, all you need is a bicycle and an adventurous spirit. Rest leave it to the Delhi By Cycles.

One of the many green zones, The The Ridge forest is a great hiking/biking place in the capital. The northern Ridge also contains a number of old monumnents and ruins. If you and your partner share a love for nature walks and birdwatching, then go for it!

Bhuli Bhatiyari ka Mahal

But then, if ghosts and spirits are your thing then this might be the place for you. The Bhuli Bhatiyari ka Mahal is one of the most haunted areas in the capital. It is an old hunting lodge that has been abandoned for centuries. Weird noises, screams, invisible shuffling activities and unnatural gusts of wind have been reported by many who have dared to go here.

Tughlaqabad Fort

Another offbeat place in Delhi, the Tughlaqabad Fort is a ruined fort with massive ramparts. The road to the fort is sloping and green on either side, which makes the drive here all the more fun, specially if you are on a bike. The Asola wildlife sanctuary is also closeby, so don’t forget to check that out. Pick a nice clear day to come here with your sweetheart, put on your best sneakers and carry a picnic basket with you. Great idea for a date, eh?

2. For the Amorous Lovebirds

Stay at the The Lodhi

If you are feeling especially romantic, you should try The Lodhi one for starters. Book a room in this elegant hotel that redefines contemporary flair and creativity. Each and every room and suite has a king sized bed, its own plunge pool and extensive balcony (perfect for a candlelight dinner <Hint. Hint>) As expected from any five star hotel, the furnishings are classy yet comfortable with lovely ambient lighting.

The Blue Bar

The city’s first food mall, Epicuria Mall is a place to head to for your myriad gastronomical indulgences.

Young, urban and absolutely yum - these best describe Rollmaal. The idea behind this eatery was to provide fresh, wholesome meals in a contemporary setting and at incredible prices. This place is all about rolls and pao and takes you back to the nostalgic college days.

4. For the Camera-Ready Couple

Old Fort

The Old fort ( Purana Quila) makes for a very striking backdrop for your snapshots. Take your time walking around the various tombs and courtyards. There are many perfect corners for that ‘perfect pic’.

Jahanpanah Forest

You can have the time of your life clicking photos here. The Jahanpanah area has a old fort surrounded with lush forested area. The best part? Not many people frequent here, so you can click away without any annoying crowds. I know how frustrating that can be!

Connaught Place

Connaught Place or CP is a famous colonial-era circular market and Delhi's ultimate open-air mall. This intriguing cross between a Victorian arcade, a bazaar and a shopping mall also makes for many creative background and foreground shots!

5. For the Experimenting Doublet

4700 BC

Located in DLF Place, Saket, this small kiosk is all about old fashioned and handcrafted popcorns. The shop itself is very interesting. The walls depict the story of the first popcorn produced in the year 4700 BC in Peru and the eventual journey of popcorns to America and around the world.

Sanjay Van Dargahs

If you like experimenting and exploring new places, this is probably a place you have never heard of. The Sanjay Van dargah is the largest forest patch in Delhi. The Mehrauli side entrance will take you to rocky terrains and lots of Dargahs which are still frequented by devotees, while the Vasant Kunj side will take you to a pond with surrounding lush greenery. This is also a great place for bird watching. This is also the recommended entrance.

If you enter from the Katwaria Sarai side, you will come upon the Baba Gorakhnath Temple. So a lot of things to see and do here. Mornings are the best time to visit. Carry your own water.

Nizamuddin Basti

This place offers everything at once with an eclectic mix of heritage, shopping place, spiritual experience at the dargah and one of the best places in the capital for non vegetarian food. You should come here to experience it yourself.
