Travel Guide – Two Sides Of Delhi

As beautifully put: “Delhi is a city of jarring juxtapositions: extreme wealth and outstanding beauty often alongside brutal poverty and filth”.

It is exactly this duality that makes this country worth visiting and trying to help, for you need to be the change you want to see in the world.

Also known as The National Capital Territory, Delhi has a tendency to leave powerful impression to almost all first-time visitors.

It is intense, bewildering, and life-altering experience to be a part of that perfect chaos, even for a little while.

The traffic appears so out of any order, it feels like you’ve entered a parallel universe in which anarchy rules – “motorcycles weave dangerously among larger vehicle, pedestrians risk life and limb as they dodge across the streets”, but once you get a hang of it, you will start your full-fledged Delhi experience.

New vs. Old

This is when you start absorbing that chaotic beauty. The stunning architecture, dazzling green areas and well-planned structures become to emerge. New Delhi acts as a connection between some of the city’s main attractions: Rashtrapati Bhavan (the Presidential Residence), Connaught Place and India Gate, the national monument of India.

On the other hand, you also need to see Old Delhi in order to round up your Delhi adventure. Old Delhi more closely and genuinely meets your expectations from the notoriously bustling and crowded cities in India. Narrow streets and decaying walls, rickshaws, and all other hallmarks of India wait for you there. What are you waiting for?
