Welcome to Delhi, a symbol of both old and new India. The streets are filled with an endless swirling energy. The historic shops in the old markets of Chandni Chowk are filled with vivacious saris and the particular savory aromas of the local flavors such as kulle chaat, a hollowed out fruit or vegetable often filled with chickpeas and bright pomegranate seeds. You are picked up from the airport by a private transfer and taken to your hotel in the heart of the city.
The Red Fort sits as a reminder of Delhi’s Moghul past and dates back to the 17th century. The red sandstone gives the entire complex a rustic, faded look but the history of the city is still palpable. Bastions and turrets climb to a height of 59 feet alongside the river and almost 110 feet over the city. The marble and floral décor, along with the double domes, personify later Mughal architecture. When you arrive at your hotel you can settle into the luxuries of both new and old Delhi.
