Travel to New Delhi

New Delhi is the capital of India and one of the country's largest cities. The city offers something for all types of travellers, from high-end style bars to ancient mosques. With ebookers, you can book your whole trip, from a flight to Delhi, to a day trip to the Taj Mahal.

Flying into New Delhi

The bustling Indira Gandhi International Airport serves New Delhi, offering regular air connections from cities around the world. The airport is located about 14 miles from the centre of the city, just off Gurgaon Road. Over 40 million people travel through the airport each year.

Transportation to the Airport

The airport in New Delhi is one of the most well connected in India, and you can choose from a number of transportation options. One of the fastest and most comfortable options is the Delhi Metro, which offers a fast Airport Express service to the New Delhi Railway Station. The ride takes less than 20 minutes and costs 80 rupees. Smoking, food and riding on the roof are not allowed. Taxis are also convenient, particularly if you have heavy luggage. You can get a taxi from an attendant, who will inform the driver of your destination. Each cab is equipped with a meter and a GPS to ensure reasonable service, and the fares vary by destination. For reference, the approximate fare to Paharganj is 220 rupees. The drive into town can take up to 45 minutes in heavy traffic.

Weather in New Delhi

New Delhi experiences dramatic seasonal changes, which can be overwhelming for travellers. During the monsoon season, which runs from early June to the end of July, heavy rains drench the city. The hottest months are May and June, when temperatures frequently rise above 35°C and humidity is high. During these months, an umbrella and light clothing layers are crucial. October and November are pleasant months, with lower humidity and temperatures that average 25°C. December, January and February make up the winter season, when temperatures can drop as low as six°C. You may need a mid-weight coat during the winter, but heavy outerwear is rarely necessary. March and April are also pleasant months to visit, with temperatures that average 20°C.

New Delhi Highlights

Many travellers pass through New Delhi on their way to other parts of India, but the city has plenty to offer visitors. From the stunning columns of the Red Fort to the ancient architecture of the Jama Masjid, you will find no shortage of activities. If you want a true Indian experience, visit during Holi, when the streets become alive with colour. You'll find the lowest prices during the winter, when most travellers head south for warmer destinations.

Experience India

No matter what time of year you visit New Delhi, the city is sure to overwhelm and enchant you. The fast pace of life, the friendly people and the wide variety of cuisine options ensure that you will have plenty to fill your days. With ebookers, you can book flights to Delhi and find great deals on hotels and local tours.

Things to do in New Delhi

In the crush of today’s New Delhi, you find street urchins, chai wallahs, blind beggars, and snake charmers alongside a sleek, upscale modern scene with exclusive malls, suited businessmen, and air-conditioned coffee shops that evoke the New in the city’s name. Expect mind-crushing traffic, rough and gritty streets, persistent touts, and the tempting scent of Indian cuisine around every corner. It’s a sensual assault accompanied by the perplexing sound of different vernaculars that will leave you, at times, wondering if even the locals understand each other. But many of the city’s most alluring places remain its most ancient. Immerse yourself in the storied history by visiting Old Delhi near the Red Fort, Humayun’s Tomb, or ruin-ridden Lodhi Gardens—all offer a peaceful respite from the hustle of new India.

New Delhi When to Go

Spring and fall are the most promising times to visit New Delhi, with the broader tourist season stretching from October to late March. By April, the heat approaches 100 degrees. It sticks in the triple digits until July, when the monsoon rain comes, cooling things down but turning the streets into a boggy mess. As the seasonal rains pass, the city stays relatively cool and—for a brief time, despite the pollution problems that plague the city—clean. With the first full moon between mid-October and mid-November comes the Hindu holiday of Diwali, a celebration of Lord Rama’s triumph over evil, featuring fireworks and festive lights for five days.

If you plan on being in Delhi from late December through February, keep in mind that the temps can be relatively cool, especially at night, dipping down to the lower 40s. This is a good time to catch outdoor classical music concerts (popular Sufi devotional concerts take place all year in Nizamuddin). On January 26, India observes Republic Day, celebrating the adoption of its constitution—a big deal, with military parades and millions of spectators. Usually beginning in February, the exquisite Mughal Gardens behind the presidential estate open for public viewing for about a month.

March and April are the final months before things get too hot for most visitors. Travelers fill the city, making their way from south India to the Himalayas. The celebration of Holi, an Easter-like holiday when participants often find themselves colored with dye as part of “color wars,” takes place in mid-March.
