City: New Delhi

Union territory: Delhi

Country: India


Hi, welcom to Delhi....

Low cost accommodation is available in Paharganj and Karol Bagh areas and most backpackers stay there.. You can visit Red Fort, Walk around the old city and reach the Jama Masjid and then proceed to India Gate and British Delhi then on to Qutab Minar, Humanyun's Tomb, Khirki Mosque, Akshardham Temple and so much more to visit. Depends on your interests. Delhi now has a reasonable system of Metro which is very comfortable and safe and also inexpensive. For areas not covered by Metro,I suppose you will have to take local busses (not comfortable) or Auto rickshaws (Tuktuk).

All kinds of food and eating places can be found in Delhi. There is a very wide choice of restaurants from very cheap to very high end and expensive ones and everything in between. But I would strongly recommend Karim's near jama Masjid if you wish to taste the authentic Delhi food and be safe. Yet Another one is Al Kausar in R K Puram, next to Swami Malai Mandir... these are not to be missed places and reasonably priced too.

Hope you have a great time in Delhi.
