Where are the most popular flight destinations in India?

The most popular flight destination in India, according to our users, is New Delhi, followed by Mumbai, Amritsar, Chennai and Bengaluru.

No other country in the world has the ability to make you laugh, sing and weep all in one day. The land of wonderful contrasts, travellers booking cheap tickets to India will discover a kaleidoscope of slums and beggars living alongside lavish medieval palaces and sacred rivers. The honking horns, tinny cow bells and screaming babies can sound like chaos to travellers coming off their flights to India. But rather than allow it to distress you, accept it as a warm welcome from a country that makes no apologies for its gregarious character.

Most travellers will take an India flight to Mumbai, capital of the state of Maharashtra, which provides a good introduction to the country. The energy of Bollywood combined with its lively nightlife will give you all the stamina needed to venture on to its other cities. Explore the churches and antiques warehouses of Cochin in the south then drive to Kerala’s backwaters and spend a few nights on a houseboat. From there take an India flight to Delhi and travel around the northern part of the country. Visit the spectacular sights of the “Golden Triangle”: Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. If you have some energy left, fly into the sacred city of Varanasi and walk along the ghats (steps) to its holy temples and terraces.

India is a big country and the climate can vary depending on where you are. Winters are dry and cool and last from December through February. Summer is still dry, but warms up quite a bit. The southwest monsoon season is from June through September; the northeast monsoon season lasts from October to November.

When is the best time to fly to India?

Getting around India

Driving in India is not recommended, particularly in the cities. In Old Delhi and Mumbai you can explore the sights on foot. Many visitors hire a car and driver by the day to get around a city, although taxis and rickshaws are an option. For taxis and rickshaws (both auto and bicycle), make sure to negotiate the fare before you set out.

Motorbikes are very popular in Goa, and the state is small enough that a motorbike may be all the transportation you need.

Most cities have a bus system. Generally the buses are hot and crowded, particularly during rush hour, when the additional traffic also affects the bus service. The exception is Chennai where the city buses and suburban trains are fast and economical.

Travelling from one city to another is made easy by domestic India flights.

How long is the flight to India?

India is a large country and your travel time depends on where you are headed, as there are many options for cheap flights to India. You can fly from Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport Mumbai (BOM) on the west coast in about six hours. If you are headed to northern India, a flight to New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) will take about 5h 40min, while if you want to go south, you will need to first fly via New Delhi (DEL) or Mumbai (BOM).

Where can you get direct flights to India from?

The flight between Hong Kong (HKG) and Mumbai (BOM) is direct, as is the flight between Hong Kong (HKG) and New Delhi (DEL), and we can find you great India flight deals via these two cities. The flight to Kolkata (CCU) goes via Singapore (SIN), and flights to India’s southern regions go via New Delhi (DEL) or Mumbai (BOM), so it might be a good idea to start at one of these two major cities and then continue your itinerary from there.

What is the best way to travel around India?

Trains are the best way to travel around India, and you can go as comfortable or as budget-friendly as you like. 3A - AC 3 Tier class has three tiers of bunk beds and air-conditioning. 2A - AC 2 Tier is your happy-medium between price and comfort with two tiers of bunk-beds and air-conditioning. For example, a trip from Mumbai to New Delhi can take 15h 50min and can cost around HK$281. A trip from Mumbai to Chennai Beach can take 16h 20min and cost around HK$277. 1A - AC First Class has a private compartment with a bed, service and air-conditioning. If you take a bus, make sure you see a photo of it first, as you don’t want a surprise at the station. Taxis and rickshaws are easy, but negotiating is key. Ask your hotel what the journey should cost and agree on a price with the driver beforehand.

What are some things to do in India?

India is a kaleidoscope of colours, smells, traditions, languages and cultures. There is so much to see. In the north, you have the capital, New Delhi, with its historic buildings including the Red Fort, the Lotus Temple and the India Gate. In nearby Agra, there is the Taj Mahal, a gorgeous palatial mausoleum decorated with jade, diamonds and mother of pearl, which was built by Emperor Shah Jahan in honour of his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Still in the north, you’ll find Jaipur, also known as the ‘pink city’, with its magnificent Amber Fort. Near the border of Pakistan, you can visit the Golden Temple of Amritsar, the mecca of the Sikh religion. Varanasi is the holiest city of the Hindu religion as it sits on the sacred Ganges River. Here you can witness people descending the ghats (stairs) to the Ganges to bathe in the river or conduct ceremonies such as cremations. If you head to the west coast, you’ll find India’s largest city, Mumbai, as well as beautiful beaches in the Goa region. The southern Kerala region is tropical and known for its backwaters or networks of canals that you can explore by boat.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to India?

Hong Kong nationals are eligible for an e-Visa but must have at least six months validity on their passport, a return or onward ticket and enough money to support themselves during their stay. There are various classes of e-Tourist visa ranging from one month to five years with multiple entries allowed, but one continuous stay cannot exceed 90 days.

What is good to know if travelling to India?

  • Delhi, India’s capital, has thousands of years of history, and Old Delhi is a step back in time with its historic buildings, bazaars, and narrow alleys. Throughout Delhi the old and new are side by side: modern skyscrapers, beautiful gardens, and tree-lined avenues. Delhi is modern India, with its contradictions — old and new, affluent and poor — and a rich mix of India’s history, cultures, and religions.
  • Goa’s warm weather and sandy beaches bring droves of tourists from India and abroad. A hippie playground in the 60s, today’s Goa has five-star resorts and a party-all-night atmosphere, yet you can find remote and secluded beaches. The cuisine is a mix of Indian and Latin, and a must-do experience is shopping in the thousands of stalls at the Wednesday Market.
  • Mumbai (Bombay) has a Victorian-townhouse, English-industrial, coastal-city setting and is India’s richest and most vibrant city. Mumbai has more millionaires than any other Indian city and extreme poverty, a swinging nightlife and the Banganga Tank where pilgrims cleanse their souls. A visit to Mumbai also brings you to some of the best bazaars, sports activities, and performing arts.
  • India’s fifth-largest city, Bangalore, has a mild and healthy climate. Bangalore was the first Indian city to get electricity and is now India’s high-technology centre. Cosmopolitan Bangalore has excellent pubs, restaurants, and cafes. It is also a shoppers’ paradise with Mysore silks, sandalwood and rosewood carvings, brass and ivory artifacts, lambani jewellery, and handicrafts from embroidery to pottery.
  • Chennai (Madras) has one of the longest urban beaches in the world, but also a large city’s pollution problems. An important centre before the British arrived, Chennai retains the best of southern Indian traditions and remains a gateway to South India. As one of India’s important trade centres, Chennai is a great place for shopping.
  • Trivago is a useful website for information about accommodation in India. The site contains user reviews and recommendations on a range of hotels across the country, including those in Delhi, Mumbai, and Chennai.
