*Things To Keep in Mind While Shopping At South Ex!* (Take Out Your Note Pads, Brides!)

While shopping at South Ex is mostly a breezy task, with everything visible (thanks to the gigantic showrooms), there are some things you should keep in mind while shopping here: 

1. Most showrooms here are closed on Mondays. Only a select few are open.  

2. The market opens at 11 am and not before that so plan it accordingly. 

3. This market is expensive due to its 'luxury designer' factor. If you're looking for cheaper alternatives, then Chandni Chowk or Karol Bagh are your better bets. 

4. South Extension can get a bit too crowded on weekends, so make sure you get there early.

5. While traveling in your car is always nice, you may not find car parking here sometimes. So try using a cab or metro to get here.
