If we are asked to picture in our minds India and to say what we see, most of us will say that they see crowds of hurrying people in colorful clothing, elephants, tea, spices, and markets. And we will say that in general this is the world of chaos. What most of us have described is Delhi. Frankly speaking, Delhi travel is not for nervous.
Planning Delhi travel it is better to plan your trip beforehand in order not to add your own chaos to chaos of the city and, finally, to loose your mind and spoil holidays. Everything should be planned - flights to Delhi, hotels in Delhi, attractions you want to see, places where you will eat, injections to be taken, and all the necessary things to be packed to ensure your safety. If you go to Delhi not from India then go by air. Delhi is a major International Gateway to India. It has an extensive network of International as well as domestic flights. All the major airlines in the world fly through Delhi, and it is easily accessible from anywhere in the world. Domestic air links cover Delhi from all the major cities in the country.
If you plan your Delhi travel for summer, be armed with a good supply of mineral water whenever you go. If you are going to spend an evening out, don't forget the mosquito repellent and the torch, and find yourself a good taxi driver- all localities have cabbies that are institutions in their locality, and a good deal can be struck with them even to take you outside the city. Payment can be a daily affair but fixed in advance.
One thing you will be absolutely sure about is that Delhi travel will be unforgettable. Though the city of Delhi has witnessed urban sprawl over the decades, none of its charm has been lost, and it continues to offer pleasure to those who seek it. One can either follow a definite pattern to explore the city over several days, or there is that quick tour of the city that the tourist industry offers.
To make your Delhi travel safe in its original meaning follow below mentioned rules of the road there:
- On Delhi roads, all pedestrians will give way to everyone moving including bicycles;
- All cars would give way to the Ambassador Car, which happens to be the queen of Indian roads.
- Ambassador cars shall give way to trucks, buses, cows and buffaloes;
- All buses shall give way to the Red lines and Blue Line buses driven by the local lads;
- In case of national emergency and during the republic day practices, everyone should give way to the Army tanks and Russians Craz with twenty wheels;
- Zebra Crossings are meant for decorating the roads of the national capital and all drivers shall step on the gas when they see one;
If you understand these rules, you would do well in Delhi
To sum up, Delhi travel is not for weak hearted. If you have courage to take Delhi travel you will have a chance to enjoy a mosaic of culture, art, architecture, religion, markets, institutions, ethnic groups, and all the eccentricities of a multi cultural population. Wherever you are in Delhi, you just need the patience and nerve to deal with hordes of people of different dresses, ages, and colors.
