Good place to visit in Delhi NCR

We would rate Ghaziabad as a Good place to visit in Delhi NCR. Shipra Mall was a very exciting place where we spent a good amount of time shopping for the various items. Best part of the mall was that almost all the Best Brands were present in this Shopping Mall and we didn't had to struggle for our shopping needs. We also enjoyed in the evening by visiting Coffee shop and Bakery items.
