Parents usually don't worry while sending their children out because they know their kids will be safe. Girls can go out at any hour of the day without giving second thoughts whether are they safe or not. The city was designed by the French architect Le Corbusier and is made with ultimate perfection. All the roads are well connected and all the sectors are equipped with government schools and dispensaries. Chandigarh has it's own transportation system carrying 2-3Lakh passengers daily.

There is quiet harmony is nature. The wide streets are covered by a canopy of trees. The city has parks in every sector which are so well-maintained that some unique locations like Rock Garden and Rose Garden are often used for blog-shoots by the young fashion bloggers. All these parks also act as pleasant date corners for lovers who meet after their busy tuitions.

Sukhna Lake is also a point used for recreation purposes. It's a manmade lake but has a story of it's own. Every individual is somehow attached to it in some way or the other. It's a constant companion for all the people from Loners to Lovebirds, from children to elders.

We at Chandigarh don't go for long drives we go for Gerhis. Also, there’s a special place for gerhis here, "Gerhi-Route" in Sector-10 near DAV College where boys have fancy surplus budget for modification of cars.

Pal Dhaba has the ultimate Non-vegetarian food along with Sher-e-Punjab. Not only the North Indian Food, there are outlets which caters the need of American, Chinese cuisines as well.

Elante Mall acts as a mini hub for food outlets just like IT park does to MNC's.

Brooklyn Central, Mocha, Chillies, S Cafe are the best possible venues for lunch dates while Brew Estate and The Great Bear serve their self-made Beer and are usually jam-packed on weekends.

Not only the expensive ones, There are various outlets which suits budget of all the people, Gopal ji's in Sector -35, Roll Express in Sector-36 are the takeaway outlets which are usually hangout spot for teenagers after tuitions.
