The only way to truly experience India's lively capital city is to jump right in.
The first time you take a cheap flight to Delhi, it can be a shock to the senses. The traffic, with its relentless honking of horns; the bazaars and their determinedly haggling traders; the exotic sights and smells. It's enough to take your breath away.
But once you get it back, you'll be spellbound by this unique and colourful place, an eclectic mix of the grandeur of the past and a new kind of future. It's all about to happen here. You can feel it in the air. A holiday in Delhi is definitely one you’ll remember.
Featuring the Red Fort, Jama Masjid, street tours, Raj Ghat Park, Lodhi Colony Market, the Tak Mahal and more.
A city of two halves, Old and New, Delhi is bursting with things to do. Those in the know suggest hiring a taxi for the day and creating your own tour.
Delhi's famous Chandni Chowk market is a magnet for bargain-lovers, but families might prefer the less hectic atmosphere of Dilli Haat. To shop with the locals, head for INA market.
Delhi is well known for its religious buildings. Jama Masjid and the new Akshardham temple are on every must-see list, but it's worth squeezing in the lotus-inspired Bahá'i House of Worship too.
The house that Mahatma Gandhi was staying in when he was shot is now a shrine and museum. You can pay your respects at an eternal flame, burning at the spot where he died.
After packing in all that the city has to offer, grab a picnic and refresh yourself in south Delhi's Lodi Gardens, with its monuments, wild birds and wide open spaces.
