Delhi, India’s capital city, is a place where you can explore the old and new in India, in its many forts, monuments and shrines, and in its contemporary arts and fashion scene, which is envied across the country. Brightsun Travel offers cheap holidays to Delhi, featuring direct flights from UK, incredible hotel experiences, plus tours across the city and its surrounding areas. To take in Delhi’s main attractions, you could start at the Red Fort, a city highlight, and Jama Masjid, one of the largest mosques in India, dating back to the 17th century, with a courtyard able to host 25,000 worshippers at a time. On to Khari Baoli, one of Asia’s biggest markets, and you could explore spices and crafts. In the National Museum you can marvel at artifacts dating back 5000 years, and all around Old Delhi, a walled city, you can wind your way through a maze of street food vendors and traditional markets, and past a range of historical highlights.
In Delhi you can also taste some of the best food in the country, including street food at the lanes of Gali Paratha Wali, and meals in some of Asia’s best restaurants. In the gentrified neighbourhoods of Shahpur Jat and Hauz Khas you could join a young crowd in trendy new bars, or head to the classic Imperial hotel, dating back to the 1930s, and enjoy a cocktail in its 1911 bar. All around Delhi you can appreciate its fast-growing art scene. The National Gallery of Modern Art is a must-see, set in the Maharaja of Jaipur's former palace, where you can explore Indian art dating back to the 19th century. And when you need a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, Delhi has its fair share of parks and gardens. Purana Qila is a palm-fringed park where you can take a picnic on well-kept lawns and explore forts and ruins, and at Lodi gardens you will discover spectacular lakes and 15th century mosques.
