Delhi, the capital of India is one of the perfect cities to enjoy the best of Indian culture. It is a city filled with must see landmarks, attractions and numerous other best places to visit in Delhi. It is a clean, neat and tidy city with wide roads.

However, the beauty of the city often gets hidden behind the awful traffic jams and exhausting climate, especially during the summer season. But despite all these factors, the city welcomes the travellers with some scenic views and deep history. There are many cultural attractions that depict Indian traditions and customs.

Since the city was designed by Britishers, you see the entire city as a symbol of British power. Having said that, this same reason also led to the establishment of various cultures and splendid architecture that can be witnessed in the city today. Delhi has extreme climates, so it is necessary to plan your trip according to your convenience.

You should try and avoid visiting this city during the months of April and June as the uncomfortable heat rises up to 40°Centigrade. Similarly, December to January experiences an extreme cold climate with cold snaps dropping temperatures down to zero. You may plan your trip anytime between February and March or October and November to make the most of it.

The New Delhi part is one of the liveliest areas of Delhi. Here, you can find the best city life with many restaurants, cafes, nightlife, and fancy attractions.
