Holidays in Delhi

Whether you're after a laid-back getaway or an eye-opening adventure, ebookers can help you put together a holiday to remember in Delhi.

This part of National Capital Territory of Delhi is home to about 10,900,000 people.

If you head 0.4 miles southwest of Delhi, you'll get to the national capital, New Delhi. If you venture 19 miles west, you'll hit Bahadurgarh.

Not sure where the best place is to start your adventures in this mesmerising place? Red Fort and Humayun's Tomb would be a terrific choice.

An afternoon at Adventure Island or Splash Water Park is a great opportunity for some quality family time. If that isn't enough to tire the young ones out, why not head along to Fun 'n' Food Village or the National Children Museum as well?

Keen to encourage your children's curiosity about the world of wildlife? Treat them to a day out at the Delhi Zoo, where they will learn about what an animal likes to eat, what sound it makes and a whole lot more!

Delhi has some fantastic green spaces where you can go to see a wide range of flower and plant species. Talkatora Garden and the Mughal Gardens are the names to keep in mind.

Like the idea of an alfresco lunch? Grab some snacks and take off to the Lodhi Garden or Garden of Five Senses for a chilled out picnic. If you're after more options, stake out the best spot and let a few hours pass lazily by at Nehru Park or Swarna Jayanthi Park.

Start your day in a peaceful way by witnessing the sun's rays gently twinkling on the silent water at Hauz i Shamsi.

Don't spend all your holiday walking around shopping centres and museums. Venture into nature! Pusa Hill Forest is a scenic spot where you can get some much-needed clean, fresh air.

The National Museum and the Teen Murti Bhavan both have a number of fascinating displays. Ask the welcoming staff about group tours or wander the calm hallways in your own time. If you've got the time, also go to the Delhi National Railway Museum and the Shankar's International Dolls Museum.

Boat construction and navigation techniques have played a massive role in shaping many countries across the world. To find out more about the seafaring past of the area, make your way to the Gandhi Smriti.

Science aficionados will be on cloud nine at the National Science Centre, where a whole set of fascinating scientific objects and exhibits are just waiting to be studied.

Nowadays you don't need to travel the seven seas to witness all the wonders of the natural world. You can just drop into places like the Mehrauli Archaeological Park and the Archeological Museum instead, where an incredible variety of fascinating objects and specimens are concentrated all in the one spot.

With such a variety of superb art exhibitions to take your pick of, you might need a slight push in the right direction. We recommend picking up a strong coffee and spending a few hours at the National Gallery of Modern Art or the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art. You should also check what events are on at the Art Mall and the Art Heritage Gallery.

Discover exhibits full of artefacts and information that tell the intriguing story of this region at the National Gandhi Museum.

Gain a deeper understanding of bygone times when you pay a visit to the India Gate and Qutub Minar. If you're eager for more, the Raj Ghat and Rashtrapati Bhavan are a couple more must-visits.

Fascinated by military history? Go on an excursion to Purana Qila and Tughlaqabad Fort and discover their roles as defensive complexes as well as the fate of those who defended them. Salimgarh Fort and Feroz Shah Kotla Fort have also withstood many sieges throughout the years.

Learn the tales of the important residents who called Raja Nahar Singh Palace and Jahaz Mahal home over the years. Ask about tours of these grand lodgings if you're curious to experience their interiors up close.

Explore the area's cultural beliefs at the Swaminarayan Akshardham Temple and the Lotus Temple. The ISKCON Temple and the Jama Masjid also appeal to many spiritually curious travellers.

When you are visiting new places, it's sometimes the less celebrated destinations that'll stick in your memories once you're home. Two places which fall into that category in Delhi are the Max Mueller Bhawan and the American Library. Gali Paranthe Wali and British Council Division also promise a pleasant day out.

Top Delhi attractions

The Red Fort

An unmissable sight in Old Delhi, this impressive fort was the residence of the Mughal Royal Family in the 17th century. The British made the fort their military base in 1857, after they exiled Emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar. It remained that way until India declared independence in August 1947—a light and sound show at the fort marks the start of the annual festivities commemorating that event. The fort has also been named a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The Mughal Gardens

These picturesque gardens cover 13 acres, and blend British and Mughal architectural styles to great effect. Three distinct sections are filled with different species of butterflies, hundreds of varieties of roses, 13 different types of dahlias and a striking collection of marigolds. Indian Moulsari trees dot the perimeter, while fountains, waterway canals and an emerald carpet of grass give the gardens an ‘Eden-like’ quality.

Qutub Minar

This cylindrical tower is located within the Qutb Complex in South Delhi and has 378 steps that climb over 70 metres to the top. The first Muslim Turkic Sultan, Qutb-ud-din Aibak, commissioned the monument to be built in 1193 AD, but it wasn’t finished until 1386 AD under Firoz Shah Tughlaq. The formidable tower is flanked by a grand mosque and many tombs.

India Gate

The India Gate, standing over 40 metres tall, is a significant memorial site. Completed in 1921, it symbolised the entry for British rulers arriving at the Viceroy’s Palace. More recently, it has been converted in to a war memorial. The two massive columns have been engraved with the names of Indian soldiers of the British Army who were killed during the First World War and Afghan War. The arched gateway is stunning to look at – especially when illuminated from below. Nearby activities include boating and picnicking.

How to move around in Delhi

From the Airport

The Indira Gandhi International Airport connects Delhi to other states and international cities. The most common way of getting to and from the airport is in a prepaid taxi.

You can also take a bus from the airport to Connaught Place via the New Delhi Railway Station. The buses come either every 30 minutes or once an hour, depending on which part of the day you travel. One journey costs Rs50 (70p).

Many hotels in Delhi offer an airport pickup service, usually costing Rs400-700 (£5.50-£10).

Getting Around

Delhi public transport has drastically improved in recent years, making it the easiest place in India to get around.

The new Metro train system is modern and has a user-friendly, automated ticketing system. Both underground and overground trains operate from 6a.m. until 11p.m.

There are also special tourist cards available, which grant unlimited travel over one day (Rs70, £1) or three days (Rs200, £2.80).

The buses in Delhi will take you anywhere, but some services are best avoided, depending on traffic and type of vehicle—ask for advice at your hotel. Public buses generally run from dawn until 10:30p.m.

There are also many auto rickshaws, but usually they will not turn their meters on. It is important to find out the tariff before you start your journey.

Taxis are a bit more costly than rickshaws, but are safer and can be easily stopped on the streets or called on the phone.

If you plan a car hire in Delhi, be aware that drivers can be aggressive and roads chaotic in Delhi.
