2Don’t Blame The Winter If You Get Carried Away And Hit The Expressways
Don’t Blame The Winter If You Get Carried Away And Hit The Expressways

Don’t blame the Delhi winter if you get carried away while driving on a host of expressways Delhi has to offer. If monsoon was just enough to assure you a memorable ride, winter will cement that experience.

HolidayIQ Traveller Ranit Das says, “Great road, car moves at a speed of 100 km per hour. We totally enjoyed the ride. It took almost 2 hrs 30 mins to reach the destination. You will find the famous Buddh circuit in your way. One tip, if you plan to return to New Delhi within 24 hours then buy toll for both sides.” Adds HolidayIQ Traveller Vishakha, “There are multiple routes from Delhi to Agra, but we took the expensive but the fastest route to Agra - Yamuna Expressway. The expressway starts from Noida and ends at Agra. The toll for the entire journey is Rs. 320 for cars. The roads are more or less empty and the car can easily cruise at a speed of 150 kmph. My own car reached upto a whopping 210 kmph. But we controlled the speed to avoid risking a tyre burst. Although there is no need to take a stop, there are food plazas on the way to take a break or refreshments.”

The 2009 movie, starring Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor was extensively shot in New Delhi. The director has used the monumental beauty of a smoggy and chilly Delhi to the fullest. A panoramic view of the Jama Masjid on a cold winter morning is followed by a long shot of the famous Humayun Tomb where the song 'Shukran Allah' has been shot. Not only this, other integral aspects of Delhi winters like bonfire bonding and the usual lovebirds fooling around at Qutub Minar also make the cut. The director has extensively used the pleasant weather in Delhi to depict genuine romanticism.

HolidayIQ Traveller Sunil Kumar says, “Delhi is super city in winter and rainy season. You have a number of places to see. Delhi food is awesome and the city is so planned with all indications on road.”

Delhi sightseeing

Delhi is a busy city. Travelling takes lot of time. So may be 2 places to visit is all that is possible in a day if you are also fond of eating. Because to visit Delhi and not having Punjabi food is a big miss . . So our destination was qutub Minar. Then India gate and red fort. Local food at Chandni Chowk was great fun.

New Delhi Overview

History of New Delhi

New Delhi, the national capital of India, is one of the nine districts of the National Capital Territory of Delhi. It is the seat of the Government of India. With an area of 47.2 sq km, it is one of the fastest growing cities in the world and was recently rated as a Beta World City. It is bound by the states of Haryana, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan. Being under the rule of several rulers and dynasties, the city has a rich historical and cultural background. Muhammad of Ghori captured the city in 1192 and he was overthrown by Timur in 1398. The first battle of Panipat in 1526 saw the handover of Delhi from the Lodhis to the Mughals, when Babur established the Mughal Empire. The city then came under the British rule in 1803. Later, Delhi became the capital of the British who shifted to the city from Calcutta in 1911, and finally the capital city of modern India in 1947.

Things to Do in New Delhi

Delhi has two parts: the old and the new. While Old Delhi is all about alleys, bylanes, Mughal and British architectural structures, New Delhi is home to several offices and modern buildings. Some of the major attractions of the city include the Red Fort, India Gate, Qutub Minar, Jantar Mantar, etc. Other sightseeing options include the Raj Bhavan, Akshardham Temple, Lotus Temple, Parliament House, Raj Ghat as well as several museums. Chandni Chowk , Karolbagh and Connaught Place have emerged as the most sought-after shopping hubs.

Food and Shopping in New Delhi

Another significant facet of New Delhi is its bazaars and its food. Tourists can walk in the bylanes of Chandni Chowk and savour some local delicacies like chaats and jalebis or just walk up to street markets like Janpath, Sarojini Nagar, Khan Market or Lajpat Nagar to shop for clothes, chappals, bags and other accessories. Haggling in these markets is a must. The Dilli Haat where craft fairs are also held is another must-visit shopping destination in Delhi.

To reach New Delhi, tourists can opt for air, rail or road as a mode of transport. The city’s airport, Indira Gandhi International Airport, serves both domestic and international flights. It is connected to most of the cities within the country and also has direct connections to several international destinations including New York, London, Hong Kong, Beijing, Singapore, etc.

New Delhi is also well connected by trains. New Delhi Railway Station (NLDS) is the main rail station of Delhi. Other major stations are Old Delhi Railway Station and Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway Station. New Delhi is also reachable by road from nearby cities and regions with bus services being provided by the Delhi Transport Corporation and several private operators. There are three main bus terminals – Inter State Bus Terminus, Sarai Kale-Khan Bus Terminus and Anand Vihar Bus Terminus.

New Delhi has extreme climatic conditions. Summers, with temperatures often going above 45° Celsius, can be very hot. Winters, on the other hand, are chilly and foggy. However, the best time to visit New Delhi is from October to March as this time is ideal for sightseeing activities and outings.

Travelling within New Delhi

The best way to get around Delhi is either by auto rickshaws or the metro, which connects major parts of the city. Tourists can opt for cycle rickshaws when exploring the quaint old bylanes of Old Delhi.

Accommodation options in New Delhi

Delhi tourism gives a lot of options to tourists when it comes to hotel options in the city. Hotel options in New Delhi include service apartments, lodges, budget hotels, 5 star hotels as well as home stays.
