Airline Tickets to Delhi
New Delhi is the capital city of India since old times and is an excellent example of blends of
historic past and a vibrant present. Besides being seat of federal government it's also the travel
hub of northern India. It's an excellent base for visiting Agra and the Taj Mahal, and the Rajasthani
colour of Jaipur is less than five hours away. If you're heading north to the Himalaya or east to the
ghats of Varanasi, you'll probably pass through Delhi.

New Delhi Airport
New Delhi Airport ( Airport Code: DEL ) is located 12 miles south of Delhi.
All international flights operate from Terminal II (International Terminal) only and all
domestic flights operate from Terminal I of IGI Airport. The International Terminal is 3 miles
from the Domestic Terminal, A free Airport Authority AC courtesy coach provides a transfer service
between the terminals every hour during the day and every half hour at night. Passengers should be
prepared for a certain amount of chaos at the airport, customs are slow, the queues for the
x-ray machines are long and the staff at the endless security checks are are not so pleasant.
Changing Money/ Currency Exchange
In India, the unit of currency is the Rupee (INR). Change money with Authorized Currency Exchange places like
the airport, most banks and hotels and insist on a receipt, as it will help you reconvert unused rupees
into the original foreign currency at the time of departure. Avoid any people on the street who offer
to change your money at a temptingly high rate of exchange ( Generally you end up with fake currencies,
or its a scam where the street dealer bolts with your money. )
Taxi Bookings/Hotel Pickup
It is advisable to do all bookings of taxis (Pre-Paid) and hotels via the airport. The cab fare
is little more expensive but the cops keep a record of cab passengers so you are safe and don't have
to put up with a tampered meter or other excuses. If you can arrange to be picked up via your hotel it
would be very beneficial.

About New Delhi
The city is expansive but easy to navigate. The hub of New Delhi is Connaught Place, where you'll
find most of the airline offices, travel agents and banks. 'Old' Delhi is a couple
of miles north, and its main thoroughfare is Chandni Chowk - The bazaars that surround Chandni Chowk
in Old Delhi offer a colourful, heaving, pungent slice of Delhi life, with shops and stalls displaying
a spectacular array of goods, from fish and poultry to 'second-hand' (stolen) goods, gemstones and
gold, garlands, turbans, tinsel and spare car parts.
The major landmarks around delhi include Rashtrapati Bhavan (the official residence of the President
of India), Parliament House, the north and south Secretariat buildings, the 135 feet stone war memorial
known as India Gate and the broad Rajpath, which is flanked with ornamental ponds and is tailor made
for parades. Delhi’s cultural scene gets active and brimming between October and March. India’s leading
artists, painters, musicians and dancers like to catch the audience in Delhi. During winters, most
of the theatre, art, music and dance festivals take place. There are a number of cinemas and performing
arts centres around Connaught Place, but Delhi's strict licensing laws effectively curtail nightlife.
