Delhi Travel Guide

Delhi is not just the capital state, but the heart of India in a true sense. It has a pot belly of different languages due to the migration of people searching for better lives, the culture of moving shoulder to shoulder and home to convenient and fast-moving Delhi Metro and government-funded buses that will take you to every nook of Delhi.
This populous city has seen a series of dominance by the Kings, Sultans, Britishers and finally the democracy. It is a tale of two cities: Old Delhi and New Delhi. From Purani Dilli’s (Old Delhi) mouth-watering Mughalai cuisine and historical monuments to New Delhi’s modern sky-touching buildings, the capital city never fails to amaze its tourists every now and then. The historic creations of Delhi like Red Fort, Qutab Minar, Purana Kila, and India Gate attract lakhs of tourists annually just for sightseeing. The Red fort monument built by a Mughal emperor is now used annually for hoisting the national flag on Independence day celebration by the Prime Minister. The tallest minaret in the world, Qutab Minar is a charming old fascination for history buffs and is listed as the UNESCO World Heritage site. India Gate, so-called haunted Agrasen ki Baoli, ISCON temple and Akshardham temple among the gardens, cultural centers, and crowded bazaars are must-visit places in Delhi. Markets of Chandni Chowk, Sarojini Nagar, Palika, Karol Bagh are places to go shop trendy stuff at jaw-dropping prices with your bargaining skills. Apart from sightseeing, it houses famous Universities and political centers as well.
Delhi is a FOODIE’SHEAVEN! A trend of dining at local “dhabas” is indeed very popular in Delhi. You think of fast foods, healthy diet, spicy snacks, Asian or fusion, you get all in here. The Paranthe Wali Gali, a street in Chandni Chowk, is pretty famous for food eateries since the 1870s, where the entire street is occupied with fast food stalls. The high-profile restaurants & cafes are nowhere left behind and have gained popularity in recent years. Haldiram’s franchised typical Indian vegetarian food joints, Hauz Khas Social, The Karim Hotel, the Punjab Grill, etc. offer a variety of foods & beverages. The food here can be little overwhelming sometimes for tourists but the Delhi belly takes it very fluidly. The tourists might want to observe first instead going on munching straight away.
Despite some of the tourist scams and all the hustle & bustle, Delhi is certainly one of the best places for experiencing all that India has to offer. From sunrise to sunset, Delhi is constantly active with life. After dark, the action shifts to its streets, as revelers explore its nightlife. Haus Khas Village, DLF Cyber Hub, Connaught Place are popular to experience nightlife. Undoubtedly, Delhi is a city that never sleeps. In recent years, the air quality in Delhi has been dreadful, so an anti-pollution mask, as well as mosquito repellents could be a worthwhile investment. Last but not least, relax and enjoy the scene. So, pack your bags, plan an itinerary and head out for the captivating capital city of India.
