Visitors on a holiday to Delhi can experience stunning UNESCO World Heritage sites, colourful markets, some of the best Indian food in the world and stylish nightclubs and lounges. For those looking for a beguiling mix of old and new, Delhi is sure to excite.
What to see and do on a Holiday to Delhi
It would be criminal to come to Delhi and not see some of the fabulous historical sites here. The Red Fort is one of the most famous sites in India for its massive scale, interesting sandstone architecture, and fascinating museums. Humayun’s tomb is another must-see site in Delhi. This impressive monument was built in a similar style to the Taj Mahal, with rounded domes and arches, however, it was built entirely out of sandstone rather than marble.
Delhi is also a shopping Mecca, with many traditional bazaars, boutique shops, and contemporary shopping malls and art galleries. Dilli Haat is a good place to start your bargain hunting, as you can find artisans and craftspeople from around the country selling everything from silver jewellery to silks to wooden carvings here. The food stalls also serve a range of tasty Indian treats. For great deals on clothing, the Sarojini Nagar Market is the place to go for surplus brand name fashion at rock bottom prices.
Eating out on a holiday to Delhi is a memorable experience, as there is no shortage of tempting food stalls, authentic Indian restaurants, familiar fast food chains and international cuisine. Stop at a friendly street stall for some delicious chaat, North India’s answer to tapas. Head to a classy restaurant for roast lamb and flavourful vegetarian dishes. Or go global with some Chinese, Japanese, Italian, or Thai dishes. Delhi also has a wide range of stylish lounges and thumping nightclubs to choose from.
