How would you describe Delhi to someone who has never been there – and what do you yourself love most about the city?
It's a beautiful, historic city with tons of charm, there's always something to discover here. As a foodie, I love the food scene – no matter where you go, you'll always find great Indian food. It's also a paradise for fashionistas: you can find everything from traditional garb to designer labels.

I love exploring old neighborhoods with regional charm, but I also love the luxurious areas of New Delhi. There are so many markets and malls – a wholly modern metropolis.

Do you have any insider tips for travelers? What's typically not on a tourist's radar?
Make sure not to miss the Chor Bazaar and the Janpath Market, where you'll find beautiful fabrics and countless other treasures.

I actually like going to the mall, preferably the DLF Cyber Hub or Horizon Plaza. They're such lively places where you can have a lot of fun. There are also countless great places to eat there.

What do you do with friends who are visiting?
I usually take them to the National Gallery of Modern Art and to eat at India Gate. Afterwards we might take a stroll at the famous Connaught Place.
