With an estimated 16 million residents it is extraordinary that Delhi is only India's second largest city. The metropolis incessantly buzzes with life, and a remarkable contrast exists between the historic Old City and the wide avenues and government and business districts of New Delhi. Intoxicating and perhaps somewhat overwhelming, this city is where you will witness India’s past as well as taking a look into its future.

“India is astonishing, breathtaking, and captivating, often all at the same time. Cities can be frantic, but there are always quiet temples to explore and places to pause for wonderful food. Visiting India is something none of us will, or should, ever forget.” - Simon Reeve
