Rude, brash, unforgiving yet undeniably irresistible: this is Delhi; India’s second largest city and home to more than 14 million people. At first glance the city overwhelms visitors stepping off their Delhi flights, leaving them with a sense of sheer dubiety. But after a couple of hours its hard exterior gives way to an intriguing, slightly vulnerable place begging to be discovered over and over again.

Delhi’s history, like most of India’s, is a fascinating and mysterious one. Featured in the famous Sanskrit epic Mahabharata as the fabled city of Indraprastha Delhi had seen the rise and fall of empires before the British declared it India’s capital. And the remnants of its past provide a wonderful backdrop – one that juxtaposes old and new to create a city so visually unbelievable and booking a flight to Delhi is only the beginning of the adventure.

A typical day in Delhi would begin early before the streets are so crowded that even if you’re getting around by foot you’ll encounter traffic. The city is packed with more than a thousand historic monuments and hidden street bazaars that will have you meandering through its backroads for hours.

Getting around Delhi

Stick to a car in Delhi if you want to avoid getting run over. Traffic is hectic, drivers have little patience with pedestrians and the few pavements that exist are poorly maintained and crowded. Avoid travelling in rush hour like the plague. Old Delhi has winding, narrow streets that could be considered walkable, but beware of handcarts and people with heavy loads. They stop for no one. 

Your best bet for getting around is by taxi or by hiring a car and driver. If you’re hailing a cab, always negotiate your fare before you board. You can ask to see the fare chart that drivers carry with them. It’s also a good idea to carry some change, since most drivers don’t carry any with them. If you’d rather hire a car and driver, check with a travel agency.
