Being the capital city of India, Delhi naturally has terrific connectivity to all other parts of the country as well as the world. Figuring out how to reach Delhi is one of the easiest parts of planning a Delhi holiday. With all modes available, it really comes down to convenience and choice.
The Indira Gandhi International Airport in the western part of the city, welcomes daily, economical flights that make travelling to Delhi time and budget-friendly. Not a bad way to start your Delhi holiday. There are dedicated domestic and international terminals as well as top-class facilities at the airport, to make your journey as smooth as possible. Transfer services and public transport facilities are available at the exit.
Trains are a great way to reach Delhi, as it is the railway headquarters of North India. It doesn’t matter which part of the country you are coming from; you will always find a train to one of the seven major railway stations of Delhi. Delhi tour packages can be tailor-made to include single journey or return train travel. Chances are, you’ll arrive at either one of Old Delhi Railway Station (DLI), New Delhi Railway Station (NDLS) or Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway Station (NZM).
Delhi offers superb road connectivity; however, it is only an ideal mode of transport for a Delhi vacation if you are travelling from one of the nearby states or general northern territory. Other-wise, the journey would simply be too long. But for those who can make the road trip, there are options aplenty. From driving down in the comfort of your own vehicle, state buses as well as pri-vate coaches or long-distance taxi services.
Do not worry about getting around the city, on your Delhi trips. There are all the intra-city travel options you’d expect. The best of them is the metro, offering the quickest connectivity to the different zones of the capital region, with comfortable AC coaches and high frequency. For super-short distances or while you’re exploring a marketplace or area, you could opt for a cycle or auto rickshaw, the most practical way to move about narrow and crowded alleyways or roads. While of course, you can always haul a taxi, either flag one down on the street or through a digital app, both are convenient and safe. Bus services, while present, are not the ideal option for when one is on a Delhi holiday.
When you’re considering a trip to Delhi, the weather can play a significant role in what you finally decide is the best time for your Delhi tour. Summers are blisteringly hot and dry, monsoons offer cool respite but can be rather unpredictable, while winters are incredibly chilly and foggy. But there is no real off-season for tourism, with a steady flow of visitors pouring in all through the year. Generally, winter is considered the best time to visit Delhi, when you can easily layer up and explore the many attractions and experiences Delhi tourism has to offer.
Whether sightseeing or culinary tours, park picnics or post-dinner clubbing, book your Delhi tour package between November and February, to be here for the best time of the year. From March onwards, Delhi’s infamous scorching summer begins, all the way up to June. If a high Celsius count doesn’t put you off, opt for a summer Delhi tour. A perfect time to plan a luxurious getaway with plenty of air-conditioned comfort. Between July and September, Delhi witnesses its monsoon season, which can often see heavy downpours. However, it is still a magical time to tour the city, when the greenery is at its lushest best and there’s plenty of dry hours to get your fill of the outdoors
Delhi is a hub of historically important places and monuments. Following are some of the famous historic important places in Delhi:
This 15th century mausoleum for Emperor Humayun is one of the finest examples of Mughal architecture, and rightly a modern-day UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sitting on the banks of the Yamuna, the red stone and white marble marvel is exquisitely built in traditional geometric and symmetric design, surrounded by paradisiacal Persian inspired gardens with water channels, fountains and blooms. An early evening visit lets you witness the monument in perfect lighting. Un-missable for those on a Delhi tour.
Yet another red stone and marble masterpiece is the Qutub Minar, a spectacular 13th century landmark that exemplifies the Indo-Islamic architectural style. The world’s tallest brick minaret is magnificent from top to bottom. While exploring the complex, you can also see the Alai-Darwaza or gateway, intricately unscripted walls and towering archways. Once you’ve seen it all, easily visit nearby attractions like Jahaz Mahal, Mehrauli Archaeological Park and the Garden of Five Senses, that are all at walking distance.
A late president, a foremost scientist, an honest humanitarian, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam meant so many things to India. Today, the APJ Abdul Kalam Memorial is a museum that tells of the life and times of this extraordinary inspiration. Through a special curation of everything from his personal artifacts to collection of works, discover the story of his journey and achievements. The memorial is located in Dilli Haat, INA, a recommended memorial park on your Dubai package.
Only on a Delhi vacation will you have the chance to visit a military aviation museum. The Air Force Museum is a one-of-a-kind glimpse into the history and accomplishments of the Indian Air Force, through wondrous exhibits. Look at a gallery of old photographs dating as far back as World War I, see the faces of aviary heroes past, and most importantly, get a close up of actual military aircrafts with many vintage models on display. The perfect dose of national pride and inspiration for the rest of your Delhi holiday.
Every state or region across India has its own traditional arts and crafts, that have been passed down the generations as a community skill. At the National Crafts Museum, you can see all of them under one roof. There are over 33,000 objects and artefacts displayed across the museum, including paintings, terracotta and clay creations, textiles and fabrics, wooden, bamboo and cane crafts, metal objects and other tribal-made articles. When you’re done observing, visit the gift shop for souvenirs and the café for a tasty bite.
A place that can be enjoyed by one and all, while on a trip in Delhi, is the National Museum of India. Founded in 1949, the institute boasts an expansive repository of artefacts that date as far back as the ancient civilizations. Relics from across India and the world have been curated by the museum over the last six decades, and displayed here inquisitive minds to explore to their heart’s content. From manuscripts to numismatics, jewellery to textiles, there’s every form of historic creation to be found here, giving you a unique glimpse into past eras of human cultural evolution. Aside from the exhibits, the National Museum is also a learning centre and knowledge repository.
Whether you are a family on a Delhi tour with young kids, or grown-ups who simply love feeling a child like joy, a trip to the National Science Museum is in order. The museum is divided into eight different sections, showcasing exhibits on various scientific subjects, from physics to biology, all presented in a fascinating and engaging way. The Fun Science section is definitely a favourite, where many scientific concepts are explained practically. There’s also a section reserved for future technology and advancements, how cool is that!

Amidst the countless stores, discover street food havens serv-ing up local favourites. Like the yummy aloo puri at Tewari Sweets, the mouthwatering North Indian specialties at Bhalla King and Krishna Kachori Bhandar. If that doesn’t satisfy your cravings, you can also find amazing Chinese food street carts as well as some great continental bites at Gol-den Fiesta. The Lajpat Nagar is a colorful market to be visited on your Delhi trip.
Explore one of the world’s most spectacular marketplaces on your Delhi holiday. Chandni Chowk is a place where you simply surrender to your senses and let them guide the way. You couldn’t find a bigger spice market anywhere. And there’s every other kind of produce and preparation too! Little wonder this is one of the best food tours of Delhi tourism. In a long list of must-visit eateries, the ones you simply can’t miss are Bishan Swaroop Chaat Bhandar, Parathe Wali Gulli, Jung Bahadur Kachori Wala and Kedarnath Premchand Halwai.
When in Central Delhi, make your way to Karol Bagh market to satisfy your hunger pangs. Here you’ll find an assortment of tempting snacks, confectioneries and drinks.

Treat yourself to the indulgent flavours just as royals once did, especially from popular joints like Karim’s, Al Jawahar, Aslam Chicken Corner, Ameer Sweet House and Nawab Qureshi’s, where you can end your gastronomic escapade with a refresh-ing roohafza watermelon shake!
