Delhi – Arrive in the Fantastic City of Delhi, the Capital of India
Delhi is a city that paints modernity with the brush of history. The capital of India is filled with a whirlwind of culture and tradition that will easily sweep you up. You will arrive at the airport and be met by your private transfer. Your accommodation will put you at the center of the city’s buzz, but you will feel miles away when you arrive in the quiet comforts of your hotel. The luxuries of the past will embrace you while the city continues to beat. The fragrant spices of chai masala embody cardamom, cinnamon, and nutmeg that reveal depths of aromatics both new and familiar. Women wear saris dancing in the gentle breeze as the textiles’ vibrant hues are set over a wealth of patterns. Lush, vibrant gardens flank the wide boulevard of Rajpath, the “King’s Way” and the blossoming flowers emulate the marvelous patterns and colors of the textiles local women wear.
The grand boulevard leads from the India Gate to the Presidential Palace, and a 73-foot dome stands at the far edge of the wide street, in a grassy garden. Beneath the canopy sits the Royal Coat of Arms and an inscription dedicated to King George V, which reads “Rex Imperator,” or “King-Emperor.” The modern city of Delhi hosts luxurious shopping areas centered around the colonnaded facades of the city’s financial district known as Connaught Place. Boutique and designer shops continue to blend international style and Indian flair amid the top heritage structures of the city. The charm of Delhi emanates from the ruins and towering ancient buildings reminding locals and visitors of the city’s 1,000 years of history, as well as the prestigious shops reflecting India’s forward-thinking progress.
