currency exchange at the airport after hours

by mollynsteve

We will be arriving in New Delhi on a Monday evening and by the time we have picked up luggage and cleared customs it will be 10:30 or 11PM local time. Will there be a currency exchange open then, and are traveller's checks or U.S. cash preferred? Thanks.

There are several currency exchanges in the airport that will be open, immediately before you go out into the melee. The rate is not as good as in town, so just exchange the minumum you will need to get to the city. They take both USD and traveller's cheques, but I have always gotten better rates with cash. Be sure to ask for change, as 500 rupee notes are not going to do you much good at the prepaid taxi stand or tipping a bellboy.

I found that taking a small amount of Indian currency with me made the first jet lagged hours/day easier. Just one less thing to worry about upon arrival.
Good Luck. Have Fun.

Or you could just get Rupees out of an ATM which is always open and has a fixed rate (although some banks have accounts that give you free international withdrawals, wish I'd known that before I left home!). ATMs here take Cirus, Maestro, all the big ones. I find traveler's cheques too much hassle, but if you want to use them you'll have the most luck in India with Amex in USD. The above post is right, there will be stuff open at Delhi at night.

Just before you leave the customs area and before where people wait for arrivals there two currency exchanges on the right hand side.

Unassuming Place, Great Food

by tayloretc about Mughal Darbar Restaurant

This is a small-ish basement restaurant that was empty when we went in, but omg the food was good. It’s related to “Chef Khan: The Kitchen,” where both chefs are ex-five-star hotel chefs, and it looks like they do mostly event catering. They offer a multi-cuisine menu, but the North Indian breads and gravys are amazing. Service was attentive and unobtrusive – it looks like they brought some of their five-star hotel staff with them too.

Shopping!

by Suet

Going into the small shops near the hotel was a delight. One particular sari shop had floor to ceiling saris and material in every colour. The sales assistants are barefoot and climb around on a raised platform. You sit on a bench opposite and have the charming scene of him throwing the saris open for you to examine until the shop is covered in them! I bought 7 in all, 2 silk ones for about £7.00 each and 5 cotton ones for under £2.00 each.

Of course there are the usual souvenir shops, full of boxes, jewellery, trinkets, all surrounded by the wonderful smell of incense, but they are a delight to explore.

The Athpula (Bridge of Eight Piers) in Lodi Garden

by pattayaraj

This bridge was built in the 16th century ( Akbar's reign ) by Nawab Bahadur, a nobleman at Akbar's court. The name Pula means piers and ath means eight as the bridge of Eight Piers. Not just historic bridge,the scenery of the garden with bridge is wonderful.
