Delhi Travel Guide

Delhi is the centre of everything from politics and economy to education and jobs. It is also known for its shopping centres like Chandni Chowk, Janpath and Sarojini Market and also for its street foods.

Located in Northern India, Delhi which is also known as the National Capital Territory of India, is a union territory. Unlike other union territories which are governed by the Central Government, it has its own legislature, high court and an executive council of ministers headed by a Chief Minister. The NCT and its urban region are designated with the special status of National Capital Region (NCR) under the Constitution of India�s 69th amendment act of 1991. The neighbouring cities like Gurgaon, Ghaziabad, Noida, Faridabad and Greater Noida together form the NCR. People come to visit Delhi for its rich ancient history and popular tourist attractions like India Gate, Jantar Mantar, Akshardham Temple, Lotus Temple, Jama Masjid and World Heritage Sites like Red Fort, Qutab Minar and Humayun�s Tomb.

Because Delhi has so much to offer, all kinds of travellers visit it on a regular basis. Another factor is availability of various kinds of accommodations, from deluxe hotels to budget hotels. If we take ?luxury hotels in consideration, The Lalit Delhi located in Connaught Place and The Claridges located in the Central Delhi, are perfect for leisure as well as business travellers. In the category of budget hotels, Hotel Bill Palace of Karol Bagh offers luxurious rooms in reasonable rates. For travellers looking for cheap hotels, Hotel Sunrise Blue and Hotel Royal Blue, both located near IGI Airport, provides well-maintained rooms.
