We delhites surely love Delhi for its grandeur.Whether its the localities,restaurants,posh colonies,ministeries, we have many things to be proud of. But, the neighbouring city that is slowly becoming the corporate hub, has many things that Delhi still needs to learn from Gurgaon. Lets see what makes Gurgaon pretty awesome other than being considered as the corporate hub.

They deliver condoms, lube P,pregnancy tests,& contraceptive pills and that too only in Gurgaon.

Though Delhi hosts food truck festivals during different times of the year,but it doesn’t have any place particular that opens throughout the year. But Gurgaon does.Sec-29’s leisure valley parking lot is perfect for foodies.Whether it’s chinese,sushi’s or anything that you crave for,you will find food trucks serving every cuisine.Though they setup around 5 pm,but you can visit them after that and enjoy the food.
Some of the famous food trucks are Gourmet Street Kitchen, Restro on Wheels, Me Kong Bowl and many others.
A Forest In The City!
Your wish is their command! After the bedlam against razing parts of the Aravallis for the bypass road, here is a respite that every Gurgaonite has been longing for….. A green stretch amidst the concrete jungle!
This 5.2 kilometre long stretch of forest is a jogger’s and walker’s oasis. Sprouting near Galleria Market, the forest meanders through Sectors 27, 28, 43, 52 and 53, ending at Sector 56. This breath of fresh air (literally) comes equipped with an 8 metre wide drain (from Chakkarpur Bund to Wazirabad) to ease the water logging woes during heavy rains.
Developed by IamGurgaon, this forest is a result of 30,000 native trees and shrubs been planted, now also inviting enough for migratory birds to flock here. The highlight of the stretch is it being wheelchair accessible and the tactile pavement for the visually impaired!
Need I say more? Savour the freshness! Get those morning walks regular!

Gurgaon, recently has seen a sudden sprouting of microbreweries all across. Yes, the Millenium City got a little luckier here as well, as far as the liquor laws are concerned. Delhi is still reeling under the strict laws that have disallowed opening of microbreweries in the capital city. If you’re a beer drinker, some of the finest freshest beers are available at these places. Sector 29 market has Molecule, Vapour Bar Exchange, Brew Buddy, Warehouse Cafe, Duty Free; Cyber Hub has Soi 7 and Quaff; Crosspoint Mall, DLF Phase 4 has Nowhere Terrace Brewpub Cafe; Golf Course Road has Manhattan Bar Exchange And Brewery, 7 Degrees Brauhaus, Fantom Bar and Brewery….Cheers to that!
