Sorry the review I just posted was for this flight which was the long haul flight. The planes were nice and that’s about it. No 2 full service meals, only a little tiny vegetable wrap an hour into the flight. Nothing else until the last 2 hours which was the only meal served. Terrible at that. Also no amenity kits were given. Not even a toothbrush. No snacks or nuts in between. Just an awful experience with a mediocre crew. Very disappointed in this supposed 5 star airline according to Skytrax.

When is the best time to book a flight to New Delhi?

To ensure you get the cheapest price possible for a flight to New Delhi, you should look to book at least 60 days in advance of your intended travel date. The price of your flight may increase if you delay and leave booking until a week or so before departure.

Which day is cheapest to fly to New Delhi?

At the moment, Tuesday is the most economical day to take a flight to New Delhi. Saturday is likely to be the most costly.

What time of day is cheapest to fly to New Delhi?

New Delhi flights can be made cheaper if you choose a flight at noon. Booking a flight in the evening will likely mean higher prices.

What should you pack for a flight to Delhi?

Delhi is hot during the day and gets dusty, so bring plenty of light linen and cotton clothes. A pair of thick, closed-toe sandals keep your feet cool while protecting your feet from Delhi’s rough streets. Travelers deal with stomach sickness so much in Delhi that there’s a name for it – Delhi Belly. Bring your upset stomach medicine of choice, just in case.

Getting to and around the city of Delhi

The Indira Gandhi International airport is just 10 miles from the center of Delhi and transportation is readily available to help you with the transition to your hotel. The best thing to do once you have booked your flights to Delhi and you’re comparing different hotel options is to see if they offer a transfer service. You’ll more than likely need to pay for it but it’ll save you worrying about how you’ll get to Delhi. Failing that, you can opt for the train. The Delhi Metro line connects the airport to the city and runs from Terminal 3 for most of the day (it finishes at 11pm and resumes again at 5am). A ticket will set you back about £1. Delhi Transport Corporation buses are another option you can consider. They run at half hour intervals and can be found outside of Terminal 3. The last option you can look at is a taxi, however there are many tales of scams that happen, so if you decide for a taxi you’ll want a prepaid one as opposed to one of the unofficial ones you can find outside.

Stick to a car in Delhi if you want to avoid getting run over. Traffic is hectic, drivers have little patience with pedestrians and the few sidewalks that exist are poorly maintained and crowded. Avoid travelling in rush hour like the plague.

Old Delhi has winding, narrow streets that could be considered walkable, but beware of handcarts and people with heavy loads. They stop for no one. Your best bet for getting around is via taxi or by hiring a car and driver.

If you’re hailing a cab, always negotiate your fare before you board. You can ask to see the fare chart that drivers carry with them. It’s also a good idea to carry some change, since most drivers don’t carry any with them. If you’d rather hire a car and driver, check with a travel agency.

What are some things to do in Delhi?

Delhi is an enormous area and it takes time to learn how to navigate it. If you aren’t traveling with anyone who has been there before, it’s a good idea to take a couple guided tours. The Salaam Balaak Trust is a charity that helps the poor and homeless in India, and it offers tours guided by children who used to live on the street. Your money goes towards a good cause and the children are great at showing you all the ins and outs of the city.

There’s nothing like the atmosphere of a cricket match at Feroz Shah Kotla Ground, India’s second-oldest international cricket stadium. It seats over 40,000 people and tickets are inexpensive, so it’s well worth your time to see a match while you’re in Delhi. Even if you don’t understand the sport, fans are always friendly and talkative, so you can learn plenty about the sport by chatting with the people sitting next to you. Feel like getting active yourself? Try a Bollywood dance class at the Delhi Dance Academy.

See where the emperors of the Mughal dynasty once lived when you visit the Red Fort, a massive building that took almost nine years to build and got its name from its distinctive red sandstone walls. It’s one of the finest examples of Indian architecture, and it contains several museums where you can learn more about India’s history. From February through April there’s a beautiful sound and light show at the Red Fort in the evenings.

Tips for your stay in Delhi

  • The months of May through July are the hottest.
  • One of the most beautiful parks to take a stroll in is Lodi Garden. Early morning is the best time to take in the well-manicured lawns and shady trees. The park is dotted with medieval monuments, the ornate tombs of the Lodi and Sayyid Era.
  • Eat and drink on the go: breakfast will typically cost a couple of dollars and consist of idlis (rice cakes), vadas, dosas (crepes), salty pongal, chapatis with sambar (dhal and vegetables) and coffee. Snack on stuffed parathas from a cart-vendor and wash down with Jal Jeera, a lime, cumin and mint drink. Lunch might be Mughlai chicken or goat curry.
  • Almost everything is for sale in Delhi. The Central Cottage Industries Emporiumin Connaught Place is the must-go-to market for traditional Indian craftsmanship including rugs and jewelry. Baba Kharak Singh Marg stocks regional handicrafts. For cheaper, Western, thrills, check out Sarojini Nagar Market for the cheap clothes and fabrics.
  • To really get a taste of Delhi, visit Chandni Chowk. It means Moonlit Avenue, which sounds romantic, but there’s little room to stroll around. It’s one of the most congested places in Delhi, where you can sample a mouthwatering array of authentic Indian food, delicacies and sweets, rummage through book shops, clothes, shoes and leather goods stores.
  • About 9 miles south of Central Delhi is the Qutub Minar Complex. The Qutub Minar is the tallest brick minaret in the world. The Quwwat ul-Islam Mosque, the Alai Gate, the Alai Minar and the Iron pillar are other important constructions. The story goes that anyone who can circle the 1,500-year-old iron pillar with their hands behind their back will be granted their wish.
  • Twenty-five is the legal drinking age in Delhi and cocktails are the grown-up drink of choice. Hotel bars and lounges attract the moneyed young, but outside the hotels, bars and restaurants are attracting more and more revelers.
  • In New Delhi, near Humayun’s Tomb, is the dargahof Hazrat Khawaja Nizamuddin Auliya, a famous Sufi saint. A settlement, known as Nizamuddin, has grown around the dargah. The shrine also contains the marble tomb of Amir Khusro, the great Persian poet of Delhi, and a number of fine Mughal buildings. On Thursday evenings Qawal (devotional music) is sung, from about 6-7:30pm.
  • To see the city at its most colorful, visit around Republic Day (January 26), Independence Day (August 15) or Gandhi Jayanti (Gandhi’s birthday, October 2). Delhi-ites celebrate with speeches, military parades and great pomp.
  • The Crafts Museum contains a collection of traditional Indian crafts in textiles, metal, wood, and ceramics. The museum is part of a village-life complex where you can visit rural India and see skilled artisans at work.
  • Entertainment is easy to come by in Delhi. There are frequent performances by well-known dancers and musicians and lots of Indian and Western films. To find out what’s going on, check with your hotel and any of the daily or weekly newspapers.
  • The Delhi Golf Clubis a 220-acre golf course on the 15th-century estate of the Lodi dynasty. The estate has over 200 types of trees and is a bird sanctuary. Nowhere else can you golf with monuments and mausoleums next to the greens and watch peacocks performing the rain dance. Temporary memberships are available.
  • Indians love to eat out and Delhi has a large variety of restaurants and cuisines, with something for every budget from snacks at roadside stalls to celebrated restaurants.
  • Indian people dress conservatively. Women are expected to cover their legs and shoulders. Trousers are acceptable, but shorts and short skirts are not. Men should always wear a shirt in public and wear shorts only at the beach. These rules are mandatory in temples and mosques. When entering a Sufi shrine or Sikh gurudwara, cover your head with a cap or cloth, women are required to cover their limbs, and men are expected to also cover their legs. Religious institutions usually have caps available, often for free, and sometimes cloth wraps are available for covering your arms and legs. You may also be required to remove your shoes when entering a religious institution or private home. It is illegal to give money to a beggar at a traffic light. If you do decide to give alms, do it somewhere other than at a traffic light.
