Getting Around Delhi

Here is some information on public and private transportation options for getting around: 

Delhi Metro

The Delhi Metro is the quickest and most affordable way to travel around the city. It currently consists of 12 lines (including the airport express line) serving 286 stations over a total length of 391 km. 

The metro service operates from 6.00 am to 11.00 pm daily. Metro users can either purchase tokens or use a smart card for traveling. 

Need station, timing, and fare information? Head on over to the Delhi Metro website to plan your journey. 

Ride-Hailing

You’ve got Uber and Ola operating in Delhi. Be sure to download the mobile apps and you will be able to book rides seamlessly with transparent fare pricing and drivers’ reviews made available. 

Rickshaw

A trip to India is not complete without having taken an auto-rickshaw ride. I remember my first time in India, all excited to hail one by screaming out AUTO and hopping into this speedy three-wheeler with a big smile plastered on my face. 

The auto-rickshaw is your best affordable option when traveling short distances and when you need to zig-zag through traffic (which is a constant in Delhi). 

Most auto-rickshaw drivers do not use their meter and will probably quote you an inflated rate so be sure to negotiate before getting in. 

Not sure what your fare should be? Get this, Google Maps now has an option that provides route and fare information for auto-rickshaws. Find out how you will never have to overpay for an auto-rickshaw ride ever again. 

In Old Delhi where most of the lanes are notoriously narrow, traveling on a cycle rickshaw makes more sense especially if your destination is too far to travel on foot but at the same time too near for an auto-rickshaw ride. 

Car Rental

Feeling gutsy and thinking you’ve got the skills to take on Indian roads and drivers? You can try booking a self-drive car from Avis or MyChoize. Prefer being chauffeured around instead? – check out Savaari.

Car rentals would be a good option if you’ve included destinations like Agra and Rajasthan in your itinerary and would like to travel comfortably.

Traveler Tips

I have also set out some important tips to take note of. Let me get into it briefly with some basic traveler tips when in India:

Avoid Burnout 

You will be tempted to squeeze in as much as you can to make the most of your trip, – don’t make this mistake. Instead, in a day, plan to check out about three places that are relatively nearby to avoid spending too much time traveling. 

Take it easy as Delhi may overwhelm your senses. Its constant traffic + honking, humid weather, and lack of personal space take getting used to so give yourself some time to adjust. 

My first days are usually spent transitioning my mindset to that of a Dilliwala. 

Learn The Art of Haggling

Unfortunately as a tourist, you will be quoted a higher price as many sellers assume that tourists are rich. Always do your research to know the usual rate; if not sure, you can always ask a local. 

Etiquette 

As many of the attractions on your list would include temples, it will be important to remember to remove your shoes before entering them. Also, practice the same when invited into someone’s home. 

You will also notice that the majority of locals tend not to use cutlery and use their right hand to eat (eating with your left hand is considered unpleasant). 

Anytime in doubt of local customs, observe others and imitate and remember “when in Rome do as the Romans do”. 

Preventing Delhi Belly

On the multiple times that I’ve been to India, I have been careful with what I consume (not to the level of being overly paranoid though) and have been able to avoid the dreaded Delhi Belly. 

If you are keen to try street food (let’s be real, Indian street food is a major attraction) try to avoid anything with ice or uncooked food and try to choose vegetarian options over meat. 

Also, always consume only bottled water no matter the location (tap water is a BIG NO NO!).

Should you be too hesitant to try street food from roadside vendors, you can always look out for a Haldiram outlet (this is my go-to). They’ve got you covered with a variety of famous street food prepared in a proper restaurant setting.

Appropriate Dressing and Behavior

A lot of the younger generation tends to wear Western-style clothing over traditional apparel daily. However one should try to pack more modest style clothing (think maxi dresses, lightweight cotton bottoms, and loose tops) to deter any unwanted attention. 

When visiting houses of worship, be sure to wear clothing that covers your legs, navel, shoulders, and mid-arms. It would also be wise to carry along a simple scarf that can be used to cover your head when necessary. 

This tip is for couples out there. You may want to avoid PDA (hugging, kissing, holding hands) in public as it is frowned upon. 

Scams

Con artists aren’t given the title artist for no reason. You will unfortunately be exposed to taxi scams, tour scams, fake ticketing counters, pickpockets, temple donation scams, gift scams, and fast-track admission scams. 

Always use common sense, ask questions, judge the situation and remember the logic that if a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is. 

Safety 

My take is that as a tourist, any foreign destination can be daunting. However, if you take certain safety precautions your trip does not have to be one where you’re on high alert all the time.

Here is how I ensure my safety when traveling in India; try not to go out late at night, avoid areas that are known to have high crime rates, and don’t trust strangers (this includes young kids and ladies too). 

Always keep a family member or a friend updated on your whereabouts daily (I usually send them my itinerary together with details of all the accommodations I will be living at). 

You will realize a lot of these are common safety precautions that some of us probably practice back in our own countries.

Here are some emergency contact numbers that you ought to remember (or have saved on your phone):

All-in-one emergency number: 112 

Fire Department: 101

Police: 102 

Ambulance: 103

Photography Tips Before Getting Started

Now before jumping right into taking Insta-worthy pictures of the places I’ve compiled, it would be good to keep in mind these photography tips:

Photography Bans

Please pay heed to photography bans on the interior of certain houses of worship. It may be that photography in certain areas such as the main prayer area of temples and mosques is not allowed. 

Also, while it may be okay to take pictures of the idols in certain temples, I always find myself avoiding that completely out of respect. 

Photography Equipment

Sites under the jurisdiction of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) do not permit the use of a tripod. Please do not try to sneak one in past security as this is taken very seriously. 

The  (ASI) has also banned the use of selfie sticks specifically at its 46 site museums across India (fret not as photography is still allowed in all the museums without cost sans the use of a tripod/ monopod/ flash-light). 

Fees

Fees to look out for; entrance fee, photography fee, and videography fee. While several places charge a photography fee separate from entrance fees, said fee is usually quite minimal. 

If you’re planning on doing some video work, a separate permit is required (along with payment of a costlier fee). Do not take this lightly and try to video without a permit, you will be stopped. 

Related Posts

Timing

While I have included the operating hours for each attraction (please pay attention to this before traveling to a location only to find it closed for the day), temples usually also have specific timing when prayers are conducted daily. 

For those of you who want to be a part of the experience, this is to be noted. 

Appropriate Behavior

While you are looking for instagrammable places in Delhi, You will find that quite a number of the attractions listed are houses of worship and tombs. While you will be welcomed with a smile into these places, it is important to be respectful and to know your boundaries. 

Avoid exaggerated, insensitive poses and recording reels that may disrupt the usual order of things. 

A final tip that is not easy to categorize – is being asked for selfies by the locals. This will most probably happen to you (as a tourist you will stick out like a sore thumb). 

While it is certainly a harmless request, do keep in mind that sometimes one harmless request can lead to tens of the same (just like the real celebrities out there; you probably won’t have the time to entertain all requests). 

Best Areas To Stay In Delhi

Karol Bagh 

Situated in the northern part of Delhi, this place is super close to Old Delhi where attractions such as the Red Fort, Jama Masjid, Chandni Chowk, and Yamuna Ghat are located. 

It’s situated between a metro and railway line which allows for easy intercity and interstate travel. A variety of affordable and comfortable accommodations can be found in this area. 

Connaught Place 

You can’t miss this on the map – rows of colonial-style buildings arranged in concentric circles around a central park. Connaught Place is located in central Delhi away from busy Old Delhi thus making it less congested.

You will notice a mix of locals and ex-pats around this area as there is quite a sizeable ex-pat community that lives in this area. 

Here you can find some of the best restaurants, cafes, shopping, hotels, nightclubs, and popular attractions such as Purana Qila, India gate, Gurdwara Bangla Sahib, and Jantar Mantar. Accommodation in this area is more upscale. 

Hauz Khas 

Situated in the southern part of Delhi, this place is often referred to as the coolest place to stay. It is a residential area of South Delhi that is well managed and built-in in comparison to the chaotic Old Delhi up north. 

This area has an impressive cafe culture and lively nightlife that attracts partygoers. Tourist attractions such as the Lotus Temple and Qutub Minar are situated nearby. 

Delhi boasts an expansive metro system that is reliable and easy to use so my suggestion would be to select an accommodation that is nearby to a metro station so that you can get around the city quickly and cheaply.
