Getting around Delhi
Taxis (yellow top) and auto-rickshaws (which seat three passengers) are freely available. Cycle-rickshaws are popular too and used mostly in Old Delhi. Try to negotiate a fare before you set off.
DTC operates the city bus network. There are also pollution-free battery-operated buses that run between Connaught Place and Chandni Chowk and along Chandni Chowk.
Taxis are available at the airport. The Delhi Tourism Development Corporation provides hire cars at government-approved rates. There are regular bus services between the airport and ISBT (Kashmiri Gate).
Delhi insider information
- Eat on the streets. Breakfast will usually consist of idlis (rice cakes), vadas, dosas (crepes), salty pongal, and chapatis with sambar (dhal and vegetables) and coffee. They only cost couple of dollars. For a snack during the day, try to pick up some stuffed parathas from a stall. Wash them down Jal Jeera, a lime, cumin and mint concoction.
- The legal drinking age in Delhi is 25 and cocktails are what the young, moneyed folk, drink.
- The dargah (mausoleum) of Hazrat Khawaja Nizamuddin Auliya is in New Delhi, near Humayun's Tomb. Hazrat Khawaja Nizamuddin Auliya is a famous Sufi saint. A settlement, known as Nizamuddin, has grown around the dargah. The shrine also contains the marble tomb of Amir Khusro, the great Persian poet of Delhi, and a number of fine Mughal buildings. On Thursday evenings Qawal (devotional music) is sung, from about 6-7.30pm.
- To see the city at its most colourful, fly to Delhi around Republic Day (January 26), Independence Day (August 15) or Gandhi Jayanti (Gandhi's birthday, October 2). Delhiites celebrate with speeches, military parades and great pomp.
- Paharganj is the busy backpacker district just west of the New Delhi Railway Station. It's a fantastic and frenetic introduction to Delhi. If you have the time to take a guided walk, take the Salaam City Walk during which former street children will share their stories of survival on the streets. The guides will also show you the contact points and shelters that the Salaam Baalak Trust provides.
- There is a light and sound show at the Red Fort most evenings. The show, in English and Hindi, is held after sunset except when it rains.
