Every tourist city or a business town has some highly rated part. Like New York has Manhattan, similarly New Delhi has “South Delhi”. This part of Delhi is full with millionaires and the expense budget for locals here are some of the highest in India. So in the eyes of a hospitality advisor, prefer South Delhi if you are planning to explore New Delhi. So 1st thing 1st.
1. Book an accommodation
Well I will always suggest my client hotel as its affordable and is at the perfect location but South Delhi is filled with many 5 star hotels too. You can get a nice room deal at around 150$ for a couple and even a complimentary breakfast or opt for a luxury hotel which will cost something like 50$ for 2 pax. Check out Hotel GTC, it’s one of the best South Delhi Hotel.
2. Close by tourist destinations
India is really lucky to have a monument on the 7 wonders of the world (Taj mahal) but if I get a chance to choose the 7 wonders of India I will add Lotus temple and qutab minar in them. Both of these are popular tourist attractions in Delhi. Lotus temple is a lotus shaped building (and it’s huge) which opens its doors for multiple religion followers to visit it and perform their holy practices under one roof. Qutab Minar has a bloody history but today is one of the tallest tower in Delhi and a very famous tourist destination in Delhi. Also have a look at this post to know more on places to see in delhi.
3. The best food is here
When we talk about some of the finest restaurants in New Delhi than South Delhi is at number 1. This part has some of the amazing pubs, bars, discos and my favourite Taj hotel. Apart from South Delhi, I only consider Connaught Place as the best place to dine.
4. Do some quality Shopping
Delhi has a nice shopping culture. Previously it was the busy markets of Chandhni Chowk not its malls like Select City Mall. If you are in Delhi for a holiday and you have skipped shopping in malls lime like DLF Emporio, City walk etc, and then you have missed a lot. These malls are not just filled with western brands but they have some amazing local studious selling some amazing Indian handicrafts, designer cloths etc. S please do some shopping.
5. Try to skip the BRT Corridor
Okay, I won’t be writing everything positive about south Delhi. There are some problems with the areas and for me the biggest ones are traffic jams. Instead of hiring a taxi from the street, ask your booked hotel reception to hire a 2-3 day cab for you. As you are paying them 20-30% extra so they won’t drive from areas like BRT which are jam packed in morning and evening time. Believe me. this one is the most important advise.
