Discover Delhi

Your first trip to Delhi can be a shock to the senses. The traffic, with its relentless honking of horns, the bazaars and endless haggling, the exotic sights and smells that fill the streets, it's enough to take your breath away.

But once you've booked your flights to Delhi, you'll be spellbound by this unique and colourful place, an eclectic mix of the grandeur of the past and a new kind of future. The air is filled with promise. A holiday in Delhi is definitely one you’ll remember.

Discover Delhi

Get acquainted

Those in the know suggest hiring a taxi or an auto-rickshaw or even take the Delhi metro and creating your own tour that takes in some of the main attractions. Or you can try cycling the city at dawn.

Have a haggle

Delhi's famous Chandni Chowk market is a magnet for bargain lovers, but families might prefer the less hectic atmosphere of Dilli Haat. To shop with the locals, head for INA market. See our blog for tips on Delhi's best free things to do.

Beautiful places of worship

Delhi is well known for its religious buildings. Jama Masjid and the new Akshardham temple are on every must-see list, but it's worth squeezing in the lotus-inspired Bahá'i House of Worship too. And don't forget all the fascinating shrines and tombs.

Walk in Gandhi's footsteps

The house that Mahatma Gandhi was staying in when he was shot is now a shrine and museum. You can pay your respects at an eternal flame, burning at the spot where he died.

Hauz Khas Village

One of the coolest areas of Delhi. Hauz Khas village is an arty area with galleries, independent boutiques along with restaurants and rooftop bars. It’s also right next to Deer Park Lake which is perfect for a stroll at the weekend.
