It is bustling, it is busy and it is constantly buzzing!!! Before it gets too much for you to experience, you have the power to turn it around by being prepared well-in-advance for it. Yes we are talking about New Delhi, the capital city of India, whose very exuberance and vibrant culture can be something that leaves you a little stunned, if you are a first time visitor. The best time to enjoy the city is from October to February end so book your airline tickets for cheap during those months at great flight deals.
As you step out of the airport, you will find yourself being the cynosure of all taxi drivers. Catch your two minute of fame with them, but act smart by having your cab booked at the counters available at the airport, so that you are not caught in this tug of war between over-enthusiastic drivers!
In fact when it comes to booking, it is definitely a smart move to ascertain all your bookings prior to your boarding your flight to Delhi. This way you step into the city with the confidence of a neat and clean lodging to look forward to, so that you can sleep away the jet lag and be refreshed for your first day!
When it comes to Delhi, there are a few very important points that you have to bear in mind. Always carry a bottle of water and once you run out of that buy water bottles of reputed brands like bisleri etc. never ever resort to drinking from elsewhere as your immune system is not really prepared to take in the water that the locals drink.
Delhi, in fact the entire India, is a foodie’s paradise. At every turn and corner your taste buds will be tantalized by the aromas floating from the scores of shops, but pay a trip to only that place that is reputed and has a longstanding name in the culinary pages. The food offered by road side stalls is probably not something that your stomach can take; so don’t even go that path. Also enjoy non vegetarian food only from the very best restaurants.
When it comes to paying a visit to temples and other religious places, follow the Indian tradition of leaving your shoes outside the premises and covering your head. Also refrain from wearing too revealing clothes.
Act smart and keep your wallet and purses safe from the hands of the plethora of pick pockets who dot the city. And most importantly, when you go shopping, the golden rule is – Bargain! Flea markets like Janpath and Sarojini Nagar are your best bet of buying clothes at dirt cheap rates. But you have to remember to bargain. Start off from as low as you feel a certain product should be rated and go up on that. But stand firm on the actual price you want to pay as most of these shopkeepers eventually agree to your price. Also keep a lot of change handy as the small shop owners do not always have change readily available.
It will also come in very handy if you learn a few important Hindi words including haan for yes and nahin/na for no. before you board your cheap flight to Delhi invest in a good city guide book that also offers English to Hindi translation.
