Top 10 Things to do in Delhi – Straight From a Real Delhiite!

India Gate,DelhiIn comparison to its standing as India’s capital city, Delhi is seen more as a pivotal character in the story of India. It’s like every facet that defines India has something ‘Delhiish’ about it. History, culture, food, nightlife, people, the Metro – Delhi’s got it all. Exploring Delhi can get exhaustive and confusing at times, especially if you are visiting from abroad. Keeping up with our ethic of making things simpler for the discerning traveler, we have enlisted the Top 10 Things to Do in Delhi. Here goes:

When in Delhi, You Have To:

10  - Go to the Connaught Place – loiter in the inner circle, lay down in the Central Park – absorb the city whizzing by.

9 - Take a guided Rickshaw tour of Chandni Chowk. Scenes from the 18th century Walled City will come rushing back. If you have a stomach made of sponge, sample as much food as you can.

8 - Take a guided tour to 5 best monuments in Delhi – the Red Fort, Lotus Temple, Qutub Minar, Hauz Khas Fort and India Gate. Each monument has a story of its own – hence, the guide!

7 - Go to Bengali Market near Connaught Place and eat your heart out – gorging on authentic Indian street food.

6 -  See the evening Qawwali at the Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah – quite a sight.

5 - Haggle for a deal with vendors at Janpath – no pain, no bargain!

4 - Visit the Delhi Haat for its wonderful exhibition of Handicrafts from all over the country. And the food’s fantastic.

3 - Ride the Metro – our guests say it’s awesome. Avoid the office hours, though.

2 - Go to the Jama Masjid on Friday afternoon, especially if you’re visiting the holy month of Ramadan – great for a spiritual experience.

1 - Attend as many Indian festivals as you can – there are several all through the year.
