One of India’s biggest cities, New Delhi is a prominent gem in the North. This city is filled with hidden surprises, lost relics, and amazing architecture. During your New Delhi day trips, explore the enormous Jama Masjid mosque or get ingredients for a fresh cuisine from the Chadni Chowk bazaar.

New Delhi is an important political and commercial district. Visit the Red Fort building that was built during the Mughal reign and national war memorial monument known as the Indian Gate. Check out the Bahai Lotus Temple or Humayun’s Tomb

Bread is everywhere in India. Often served with curry based sauces, indulge in many types of bread, like naan, roti, and chapati. Enjoy the popular local snack, the “aloo tikki” (fried flattened potato served with chutney)

In New Delhi, some useful daily phrases you may use include: “Rukiye” (Stop), “Yeh kya hei” (What is this). To say “I need to go to the hotel”, say “Mujhe hotel jana hai”, and “Iski keemat kitni hai?” means “How much does this cost?”

New Dehli is exposed to yearly monsoons along with a more humid and warm environment. Average temperature is about 91 degrees. Its coolest temperature is about 55 degrees in January. The wettest month is around July with 7 inches of rain

You can take the Delhi Airport Metro Express for around 175 Rupees or the Delhi Transport Corporation bus service that is operational all day and night for 15 Rupees per trip. There are also taxis waiting to take you into the city for 100 Rupees

Use the train and subway systems to move around quickly within this vast city. The best and most unique public transportation feature would be bike rickshaw. Taxis are a viable option but are far more expensive
