Few places are the experience of old India as apparent as in the old parts of New Delhi. The sounds, smells, vivid colors when you pass cows and people in the small alleys puts you back in time.
When to visit New Delhi
September to March is the best time to visit New Delhi.
Getting around New Delhi
The traffic is like in so many places chaotic and that driving a car is not to be recommended. However, it’s very cheap to hire drivers, or take a taxi or rickshaw.
New Delhi also has a subway system, which is under development.
New Delhi is a relatively safe city, but there are very poor people and it’s hard to hide that you are a tourist. When you go out on the streets hanging people in bunches after one and many children begging for money.
