Delhi Travel Tips for First Timers to India

New Delhi is the capital of India with 14 million inhabitants and is bordered, like Agra, by the Yamuna. It is part of the state of Delhi (not to be confused with New Delhi) and its agglomeration is the second in terms of population (more than 16 million inhabitants). The monsoon begins in June and ends in early October. The average temperature is 25 ° C with a peak between 30 ° C and 35 ° C during the rainy season.

The density of roads in the territory of Delhi is one of the most important of India. Recently, to improve the traffic, the government tries to evacuate the cows out of the city just like the macaques.

The internal transport network is quite evolved because for over 10 years the metro revolutionized travel in Delhi, with the bus, rickshaws, taxis and the train it is still easy to find a way to travel. This does not prevent the interminable congestion in the center…

The density of monuments before and after British colonization is impressive, good news for tourists and travelers.

Tips – New Delhi

Here are some tips if you decide to go to New Delhi, a list in the mess but that can be really useful to you and make your trip happen in excellent conditions.

  • If you have never been to India or if you are not used to traveling, in general, we advise you to avoid the two backpacker areas that are Pahar Ganj (in the Main Bazaar) and Old Delhi (north of the city). The touts are ubiquitous and scams are very common, no problem for those who have been to India or who have arrived there for ten days. To start your India trip, you will have other concerns and surely a period of adaptation. If you want to immerse yourself in the big bath directly do not bother it is not unmanageable either …
  • For beginners in India we recommend staying in the south of the city, the accommodations are more expensive but so much quieter to start this trip on the run. The district “South ex. part two” is fine. (All rickshaws know you will not have a problem).
  • If you need to go to the train station to buy train tickets, there is a desk on the first floor (left of the ticket counters) especially for tourists which are very good. Especially do not listen to anyone telling you the opposite even those who have a government or student card … There is only one “tourist reservation” and it is on the first floor.

To Stay – New Delhi

Delhi has good options to stay in New Delhi in all categories like Standard hotels, guest houses, private rooms, luxury hotels, bungalows, hostels, guest houses … The hotels in New Delhi are chosen from the places where we have stayed, whether a day to day or month.

We cannot, therefore, offer you a very extensive list, before a book hotel must visit for review and know more about the hotel.

The city is huge so it is better to stay in the southern part of the city, near the monuments (except the Red Fort). On the other hand, it is much more expensive, especially towards Connaught Place, the main square, in the center of New Delhi.
