On your drive, you should stop off at the Sector 26 market, which should be easy to find. It used to be one of my favourite haunts because it serves up India's best golgappas (fried, hollow cupcakes filled with potato and tamarind water) - a snack that has to be eaten to be believed. In Mumbai, it's called paani puri in Kolkata puchka but its best version is to be found in Chandigarh. It's delicious, cheap and always surprising. After that you can then head off for some tandoori chicken, perhaps. Yuvraj Singh
Drive up to the Himalayas. Kasauli, a charming Raj-era hill station, is just two hours away. Moments after leaving the city limits, the air develops a clean, cold nip. Stop for a fabulous lunch at Giani da Dhaba (don't miss the lemon chicken).
