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).

Visit the Rock Garden
They say if you throw a rock in Chandigarh it will land in a garden. I am not sure exactly how many gardens there are, but us Chandigarh folk seem to love gardening - there are gardens full of roses, hibiscus, and one that has only scented flowers. But the most famous one is the Rock Garden. It began as the work of one man, Nek Chand, who was a road inspector when Chandigarh was being set up. He wanted to make a small garden for himself. But this is like no other garden you will find in the world. He used all kinds of waste material - broken tiles, stones, bottles, old taps, bangles, cycle tyres - to come up with a garden of sculptures, figures of people and animals, which he set up in an area that got bigger and bigger.

Tips for Travellers
Winter is in its tail-end during February and March but sometimes it can last longer, or unleash a cold wave before bowing out. So carry a warm jacket, a cap and a shawl while in the city.
