Nothing beats the charm of New Delhi during the first few months of the year. In January, the city is bustling with all sort of events including the Republic Day parade, which celebrates the country's independence ending in a dramatic air show. February and March on the other hand, are usually the best months to visit, as the weather is not too hot and not too cold. In addition, Holi, the annual colourful festival of love, begins March 20 and is considered one of the most celebrated events in India where people flinging rainbow-dyed powder in every direction while dancing in the street.

As a dynamic and exciting place, New Delhi provides visitors with magical sights, sounds, smells and tastes of its endless bazaars, as well as some of the world's prominent heritage sites (it is a designated UNESCO Heritage City, after all):

  • The Red Fort: this historic fortress once housed the emperors of the Mughal dynasty for nearly 200 years. Now, it's a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and home to several museums.
  • Humayun's Tomb: this striking structure is a Royal mausoleum built in memory of Emperor Humayun, the second Mughal ruler. Beyond being an amazing spot to snap a pic, it's an opportunity to learn about the former ruler. And, yes, it's also a UNESCO World Heritage site.
  • India Gate: the iconic India Gate is an Arc-de-Triomphe-style archway at the centre of New Delhi. It houses an eternal flame that burns day and night in memory of soldiers slain in the Indo-Pakistan War. Visit the archway at night when it's lit up with floodlights and surrounded by beautifully-coloured fountains. Although it's not a UNESCO World Heritage site yet, there's still plenty of time!
  • Defence Colony: Initially built in the 1960s for ex-defence service people, the Defence Colony is now a lively, up-scale neighbourhood home to restaurants, cafes, and high-end shopping. Its central location makes it impossible to miss—but we know you're already halfway there!
  • Day trip: Just one to two hours travel time away is the Taj Mahal of all historic sites—the Taj Mahal itself! It needs no introduction or explanation—it's one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
