Explore the Markets in Istanbul! There’s no better way to soak up the atmosphere of a city than at the local market. From the aromas and flavours of fresh food to the fabrics and questionable souvenirs of arts and crafts stands, markets are a great source of entertainment and an insight into local lives. You should visist the Grand Bazaar.

Try this instead...

If one were to visit Delhi... i would surely recommend them the Delhi Zoo. .. it would feel as if that's a different world altogether...!!!

the rest of the monuments etc are the usual places but for shopping do check out Lajpat Nagar -2 Central Market and Connaught Place.. and get into the malls in Vasant Kunj in Delhi and NCR area DLF mall in Noida and the Mall road in Gurgaon...

in Delhi it's better to be indoors rather than outdoor...
