48 Hours In New Delhi

Not so surprisingly, 48 hours aren’t enough to experience the magnitude that is New Delhi. But if you want to observe Delhi within a limited time, then worry not. You can still have the time of your life in this lively capital city of India. There are so many places to explore, so many things to buy, so much food to eat and so much metro travelling to embark upon. It’s just not enough, is it? But to help you out in your limited time in Delhi, here’s a list of things you can do.

Day 1
Rise and Shine: Fancy a walk early in the morning? Give yourself a chance to breathe in the fresh morning air by taking a walk in the Garden of Five Senses. This quaint park is the perfect spot to start off your day of adventure.

Break the Fast: When you’re done taking a nice stroll in the gardens, take a pit stop before you head back to your hotel. Refresh yourself by indulging in some breath-taking coffee and breakfast from Rose Cafe, which is close to the garden you’ve just strolled in!
