Delhi Holidays

If there’s one thing that can be said with certainty about Delhi, the bustling capital of India, it is that the city is truly immersing. Defying homogenisation, Delhi makes it difficult to sit on the sidelines without being sucked into the vortex of sights, sounds and smells that cause routine whirlwinds here. Read more ...

New Delhi travel guide

  • The plain area to the west of the Yamuna River, where Delhi lies today, has been a centre of civilization for millennia. Indraprastha, the city of the Pandavas, is mentioned in the 3,000-year-old Mahabharata Hindu text, a city sited where the Old Fort now stands. Delhi is a city of metamorphosis in terms of physical buildings, people and culture from the early Hindu rulers to the arrival of Islam. There was a succession of Islamic dynasties, reaching their zenith with the architectural wonders of the Mughals, and in particular Shah Jahan, builder of the Red Fort and Jama Masjid. His city, Shahjahanabad, is today’s Old Delhi with its tangled, intoxicating streets and bazaars. All of this contrasts with the imperial project of the last rulers of India, the British, who in 1911 decided to build their own imperial capital to the south of Old Delhi. The broad boulevards and geometric order of New Delhi give the capital its other distinct half. Designed by Lutyens, the European classical grandeur now has a distinctly Indian flavour, and much of New Delhi is fast acquiring the shiny glass-and-steel look of the modern Asian metropolises. You will find all races, faiths and customs of every region of India alongside one another on the streets of Delhi.

  • New Delhi is a bustling city full of people and beautiful architecture. There are numerous temples spread over the region, all worth a visit for anyone who is interested in these architectural wonders. Just walking the streets of New Delhi is a unique experience. You will soon notice that this city has many things to fall in love with.

  • Indian cuisine is justifiably famous throughout the world. With its use of spices, it conjures up the most subtle and explosive tastes. New Delhi is a feast for food lovers, bringing together not just the best in North Indian cuisine, but also offering excellent regional styles, Far Eastern cuisines and contemporary fusions.

    Bukhara

    Specializing in Northwest Frontier and Mughal cuisine, the menu at Bukhara is dominated by meat. This popular place fills up easily, so it is worth booking ahead. You can find this place in the ITC Maurya Hotel.

    Indian Accent

    If you are looking for innovative Indian cuisine you can come to Indian Accent. This restaurant offers great dishes in a stylish and cosy setting and can be found in the Manor Hotel.

    The Great Kabab Factory

    If you like kebabs, The Great Kabab Factory offers great kebab dishes in a nice and warm atmosphere. This restaurant chain can also be found in other Asian destinations like Bangkok.

  • Alcohol is not deeply engrained in Indian culture, though New Delhi’s bar culture is fast becoming world-renowned. The best bars are found in the more upmarket hotels with ordinary drinking holes, still very much all-male affairs. This area of almost 22 million people offers world class nightlife, often increasingly glitzy and expensive. There are plenty of places to rub shoulders with the rich and beautiful in New Delhi’s hotel clubs and bars. If you are looking for something more traditional, you can also find some of the best in Indian music and dance here.

    Agni

    Agni nightclub is located in Connaught Place and is a great place for a night out, absolutely one of Delhi’s hottest clubs. It is small but they make up for it with all the dance beats. However, the drinks are quite expensive, with tax added on top, which makes the drink more expensive than London, but definitely worth a visit.

    Club Bar

    Situated at the lobby level at The Oberoi Hotel, the stylish Club Bar has a large variety of International beverages. This place also features an eclectic collection of cigars.

    Kitty Su Night Club

    The Kitty Su Night Club is open on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and offers you a multiple level party place. There are gigs here every week.
