Delhi is a city where time travel is feasible. Step aboard your time machine (the sleek and efficient metro) and you can go from Old Delhi, where labourers haul sacks of spices and jewellers weigh gold on dusty scales, to modern New Delhi, with its colonial-era parliament buildings and penchant for high tea. Then on to the future: Gurgaon, a satellite city of skyscraping offices and glitzy malls.
This pulsating metropolis has a bigger population than Australia, and is one of the world's most polluted cities. But woven into its rich fabric are moments of pure beauty: an elderly man threading temple marigolds; Sufi devotional songs; a boy flying a kite from a rooftop.
So don’t be put off. Delhi is a city that has been repeatedly ravaged and reborn, with vestiges of lost empires in almost every neighbourhood. There's so much to experience here, it's like a country in itself.
The day will start with a short visit to the Gurudwara Bangla Sahib and monumental tower- Qutub Minar. It will be followed by a stopover at eternally beautiful-Humayun’s Tomb, the inspiration to the Taj Mahal, a World Heritage Site.Next, you will visit the Red Fort,which also has a Sound and Light Show. One of the best places to witness the sun set in Delhi is the Old Delhi so as the sun sets head to the Old delhi to explore the bustling streets with a visit at the famous Jama Masjid. Old delhi is also filled with many famous restaurants. So having dinner in Old delhi will be a great choice.
The Trip is customisable.
