    Delhi, Delhi & Surrounding Region, India
    LOVE that metro! Totally airconditioned and the cleanest metro I have ever been in. When I was in Delhi it was 47 deg celcius and 90% humidity (almost ... haha) so whenever I couldn't stand it ... I just popped down in the metro (really... STRONG airconditioning).

    it's hard to give tips on getting around in new delhi because the minute you step out of the station you're surrounded by all kinds of taxidrivers. it's very hard to shake 'em of and choose your own path.

    i live in delhi so i can pretty much be very confident about the place...
    theres no point explaining stuff thats easy enough to know from any website...
    a few unknown sites  once youre done with the usual sights, make it a point to check out these lesser known gems
    ~hauz khas madarsa- if you liked lodhi gardens (which you would), this place is right up your alley. a hep market leads you to the ruins of madarsa which stand by the side of a medieval tank, in the midst of a lush park... romantic enough... ~crafts museum- this is an amazing place... well designed... nice galleries, a great souvenir shop... nice way to spend half a day ~dont just stare at chandni chowk and leave. take a walk through. you wont be mortally dangered in any way. but you'll have an experience to remember.and you can have great bargains and food on the way. ~near connaught place, on hailey road, is a stepwell by the name of agrasen ki baoli. contrast galore, as standing at the top of the ancient steps, you can get a view of both, the historic stepwell and the modern skyscrapers of cp... and its probably the coolest (climatically) spot in the city centre
    let downs- ~personally, red fort is somewhat disappointing. for all its hype, red fort is pretty... well, normal. it is impressive, but not enough. there are better forts in the country. ~paranthe wali gali- you can get better and cheaper paranthas at the newer and swankier parantha joints like not just paranthas, without having to heave yourself to chandni chowk. ~akshardham- plastic. it all seems like a huge publicity stunt. you dont feel any sacredness whatsoever. more like bhaktiland-the disneyland of faith. the food court is decent though.
    on the mark ~humayun's tomb, lodhi gardens, safdarjung's tomb, mehrauli- all are monuments that will definitely awe you. ~lutyens' delhi- a drive through and you'll know exactly why this is the country's most expensive piece of real estate ~big chill-desserts are not overhyped at all... id call it underhyped... head here for gastronomic orgasm

    If you have more than a 3 hour layover at the airport, you have to wait in the tourist/transit lounge and cannot re-enter the terminal until 3 hours before your flight.. The charge is 30 rupees for every three hours. The seats are far from confortable, but you can come and go to food and bathroom facilities.

    When you're using the New Delhi train station make sure that you go to the International Tourist Bureau on the second floor (NOT the regular ticket stands on the main level or to any other "ticket office outside of the station). As soon as you start walking toward the station you are going to be bombarded with people trying to lure you away with all kinds of stories. The office hasn't closed/burned down/moved/spontaneously combusted, or any other excuse they may try to pull on you. Chances are good you'll want to believe people but most of them really just want to take advantage of you, and I heard some stories of people being led to another location and being robbed of everything they have (extreme case, I know, but it happens). The office should be open from 8am-8pm and there are usually a lot of lines, but they're very helpful in making sure you get to wherever you're heading! :)
