Ancient and modern India collide in Delhi: Cars jostle for space with elephants and camels on the city's streets. Visitors will find that parts of Delhi have manicured gardens, natural forests and ridges, and other areas are crisscrossed by dark, congested alleys that dead-end into centuries-old mosques and palace ruins. A popular travel destination, the city is also a melange of different cultures, as people from all over the country go there in pursuit of jobs and dreams.   Click here to see the full Delhi travel guide on Travel42 »

Located in the heart of northern India, Delhi sprawls along the banks of the Yamuna River for about 12 mi/20 km. The areas of most interest to visitors are west of the river—old Delhi to the north and New Delhi to the south. Old Delhi is mainly a walled city of narrow streets, enormous mosques and colorful bazaars. Its main streets are Daryaganj and Chandni Chowk. Built by the British Raj, New Delhi is separated from the old one by Paharganj—a neighborhood full of accommodations, shops and cafes that cater to budget travelers.   Click here to see the full Delhi travel guide on Travel42 »

Because Delhi is really two cities in one and both offer plenty to see and do, consider taking at least one organized tour. Many of the places you'll want to visit are spread out, and transportation between them can be complicated, expensive and time consuming. A tour will provide a good overview, and you can then return to the sites that interest you. The India Tourism Development Corporation and the Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation offer coach tours. You can also hire a chauffeured car with an English-speaking guide for a more individualized tour, or simply hop on the HoHo bus, a hop-on, hop-off bus tour with multiple routes that meander through the city's main attractions. We recommend booking online. The service runs daily except Monday. Phone 11-4094-0000. http://www.hohodelhi.com.  Click here to see the full Delhi travel guide on Travel42 »

India has dozens of regional cuisines that include much more than curry dishes. There are roast meats, pancakelike dosas, and snack foods ranging from fried samosas to papri chaat (Indian-style nachos) and Bombay bhel puri (a puffed rice concoction). Most of them are available in Delhi's eateries, roadside stands and hotel restaurants. A restaurant boom has increased the quality and range of stand-alone restaurants.  Click here to see the full Delhi travel guide on Travel42 »
