What not to miss in Delhi

(Literally) the Shatabdi Express 6am departure to Agra from New Delhi train station (not to be confused with Old Delhi station) 



Shopping at its best – from the traditional bazaars to the modern malls and designer boutiques including those in the Oberoi hotel 



The 2010 Commonwealth Games being held in the city, if you're a sports fan


 
 

The capital of India and international gateway to Northern India and the states of Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh (home to the Taj Mahal and the sacred Varanasi) in particular. 

Most visitors will spend some time in Delhi, either on arrival or before leaving India, and with a wealth of sights & attractions in its own right a night or two should certainly be included in any holiday itinerary.

Delhi is a mesmerising introduction to all that is India. We can guarantee that you will encounter your first cow roaming the streets within minutes of your arrival! 

The sights, the smells, the sounds, can initially be overwhelming and the sheer size and scale of Delhi daunting, however most quickly embrace this fascinating city, eager to discover all that is on offer. 

Delve beyond the somewhat chaotic surface (which itself is the appeal for many) and you will find a city to rival any in the world: from the historic sights to wide boulevards and gardens, to busy shops & restaurants.
 
Consisting of 8 cities in its entirety, for a worthy visit to Delhi, focus on the main areas of interest:

Old Delhi and its historic sights, including the Red Fort and Jama Masjid, India's largest mosque which can accommodate a remarkable 25,000 worshippers

South Delhi (infact the oldest city of Delhi, built in the twelfth century) home to the first Moghul mausloeum, Humayun's Tomb, and Qutb Minar, a complex of the first Muslim India monuments including a 70m high victory tower and the ruins of India's first mosque

New Delhi,
the colonial capital built during the British Empire, regarded as the modern city centre and the location of many of Delhi's museums, and an array of shops surrounding the impressive Connaught Place


After a busy day sightseeing, join India’s socialites for a night on the town, where the social scene particularly focuses on bars and restaurants located within the hotels and is of an international nature.

Our favourite venues to be seen in:

1. The Imperial hotel – oozing sophistication and colonial charm choose any of the fine dining restaurants at the Raffles of India 

2. The Park – Delhi’s trendy 30-somethings frequent this hip venue day and night; try 'Mist' restuarant for Mediterraean cuisine before hitting the ultra cool 'Agni' bar

3. Taj Mahal hotel – with the largest martini selection (over 100 varieties) in Delhi, Rick’s Bar is the place to be on Friday & Saturday nights, or try the champagne brunch on Sundays in 'Machan' 

4. Claridges – be seen in Aura, the trendy vodka bar, perhaps a surprising find in one of Delhi’s colonial hotels
