"The City Monger's Dream"

  • Posted May 27, 2013
A bustling metropolis, worthy of being called the capital of the country. It has wide roads, innumerable fly-overs, modern shopping malls, high-end pubs, cinemas, heritage sites, national monuments, parks, coffee shop, grand hotels, snazzy restaurants, fast food joints, copius street food and shopping districts to cater to various budgets. A word of caution to women travellers - the city is not safe at night.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: There is no dearth of cheap and affordable food in Delhi. One can also indulge in multicuisine delicacies at innumerable number of high class restaurants. Otherwise one can also have a Rs 20 full meal at Parantha gali or the street food at many of the shopping districts.

Lots to offer for sight seeing also as the city is riddled with heritage sites and national monuments. There is good metro connectivity to most of these places and travel is comfortable. One can also visit nearby hill stations and cities like Agra, Mussourie, Dehradun over a night's journey.

When it comes to shopping only one this city in India offers the huge array of items to cater to various budgets and tastes. The shopping districts of Karol bagh, INA Market, Chandni Chowk, etc provide such pleasures.

Activities & things to do: One must make it a point to visit the various heritage sites and national monuments. The best way to do it is using the Metro network. One cannot go to Delhi and not indulge in a shopping spree. So make it a point to go to any of the shopping districts mentioned. A visit during any of the festive seasons like Diwali or Holi will pleasantly surprise the traveller with the kind of festive mood that prevails.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Delhi is well connected by air and rail with most major cities in the country. Rajdhani trains travel from all state capitals to delhi. Good roads and highways also enable travel from nearby destinations.

Summers are extremely hot and thereby adequate fluids and sunscreens are necessary. Winters on the other hand are very cold and necessary clothing is required to be carried. Generally women travels are warned to avoid going out at nights as the streets are not safe.
