Delhi – with its dusty air and millions of people and cars seems overwhelming to many travellers. It is very confronting and in your face.
But give it a few days…if you can see past the dirt and get used to the noice and huge amount of people around you all the time, there is a good chance that you will actually really like Delhi.
I really like Delhi…it feels to me like walking through a history book when I parade around in the old part of the city which is sprinkled with glittering gems: captivating ancient monuments, magnificent museums, and colonial buildings. And when you go down south you will find everything a modern city has to offer…fancy high-rise buildings, any kind of restaurant you can dream of, fancy cafees and clubs etc. Delhi is a truly multidimensional metropolis.
For those of you who have only scratched the surface and seen people doing the toilet thing along the railway tracks and been confronted with seedy characters in Paharganj…trust me – there is a lot more to Delhi!
The video above shows you a few places in Delhi: the Red Fort, Connaught Place, Janpath market, Delhi metro and Paharganj.
