Transportation from airport

by FridgeMagnet

Hi,

I am arriving in New Delhi airport at 5 in the morning. Could anyone tell me what time the buses to the city center start running. I would like to avoid taxi's if possible. Mainly because I hate people who try to scam me and I have been reading a lot about the taxi drivers there.

Thanks,

John

Can't help re a bus to the city, but a good option is a prepaid taxi from the airport, where the fare is fixed...

Hi John - I agree with the other poster. Take the prepaid taxi - you won't have any hassles. While in Delhi make sure the drivers (taxi or rickshaw) use the meters or settle the price before the ride. Happy Travels!

Drivers and most people who deal with tourists will try to scam you. Agree on the price before hand and only pay that amount. If attempts at scamming annoy you, do not go to Delhi or you will be raging. Just do not let it get to you and enjoy the journey.

Take a pre-paid Taxi less hassle then a bus.

Sometimes they will try to scam you for hotel but they soon give up before leaving the airport when you tell them you have a hotel or know what street you go to.

Usually when I get a Taxi from Airport to Main Bazaar in Pharganj I just tell them to go to Main Bazaar but I say No Hotel, No hotel a few times they will understand and give up. But on some occasions you could be glad they ask if you arrive in the early hours of the morning and don't really know where you are going they can be helpful but they do get a commission from the hotel when they bring new guest.

Good luck

Also, most hotels have a pick up service from the airport, usually about 400rs. This is the best way to be introduced to Deli -- no hassles, no touts and no beggars.

Thank you for all the helpful replies everyone.

I am going to Delhi NYTim. I'll just have to put my sense of humour in gear!

Re: Transportation from airport

by NYTim

Yes, that is a good idea. And remember if you get scammed it will be for 5 or so bucks -- no big deala.

Well if i were you i would just grab a autorickshaw and go to dwarka metro stand and catch a metro to rajiv chowk which is also know as connaught place.
from there you will find a lot of hotels.
budgetwise u can get a decent room in pahar ganj which is also close to the railway station in case you are planning some other trips in other indian cities.

try the site delhiexpat.com for info on nightlife and what all you need to grab and where to find what.

have a safe journey

Travel Tips for New Delhi

Stop Itching Cream

by alcoholic29

People say bring mosquito repellant. I agree with that but bring some stuff to stop the itching because you're guranteed to get bit. The city is infested with mosquitos with the New Delhi Airport the worst. I was there in May and wore shorts everyday because it was so hot but you may want to consider wearing pants. Just deicde which is more bearable, walking in pants in 100 degree weather or having 10 mosquito bites itching.

Airport to Paharganj (Main Bazaar)

by l_joo

Airport to Paharganj (Main Bazaar) is too easy, here is my tip. When you get out from the Indira Gandhi airport, you don't have to take taxi or do any bookings at the passengers-pulling-counters, just walk ahead and out of the crowd. After getting out, there are many peoples waiting for buses taxis, just walk to the bus and ask the guys whether the bus goes to Paharganj but don't ask with full complete sentence, just point your finger at the bus with smile and ask nicely " Paharganj, Paharganj ?? " and they will reply " Yes, yes, Paharganj, Paharganj." Now you just hop on the bus, sit down and wait for the guy to collect 50 Rupees from you. In about 40 minutes, you will be sent to the main Railway Station and opposite the RS is Paharganj. Just walk along the street to find your backpackers' guesthouses, price ranges from 60 Rupees in dormitory to 500 ++ in luxury rooms.

Humayun Tomb

by Durfun

Visit this tomb of the father of Akbar, and the 2nd Mughal Emperor of India.

The grand design & proportions are quite impressive.

There is a nice tranquil feel to the place, appropriately preserved as a resting place for an imposing personality.

Rajpath

by Willettsworld

Earlier known as the ceremonial Kingsway, Rajpath, which is 2.4 kilometer long, was planned as the central avenue of Sir Edwin Lutyen's New Delhi. It is lined with beautiful ponds, large green lawns and trees on both sides, which makes the environment cool and pleasant. Rajpath has the Rashtrapati Bhavan and the two Secretariat buildings at its western end and India Gate to its eastern end.

Every year on India's Republic Day - 26th January - a parade or annual procession is organized here to celebrate India's becoming a Republic. The street comes alive as millions of people throng both its sides to watch the parade. The President of India takes the salute on Rajpath as marching columns from the armed forces, missile carriers, tanks, elephants and camels pass by and citizens from all over the country showcase their talents and pay tribute to their motherland.
