I would have never thought I would be giving you New Delhi travel tips…
I never expected I would visit India any time soon and I never thought it would be a country I would love to go back.
Despite the extreme inequality and extreme poverty, I was mesmerized by the beauty, the history and the people.
Visiting a country I had only seen in movies like Passage to India and Gandhi was a surreal experience.
In 10 days we went from New Delhi, to Kashmir, to the Himalayas, to Udaipur. Four unique places in India worth visiting for totally different reasons.
Our first stop New Dehli, as those of you who follow TrendSurvivor on Instagram already know…

Where to stay? The Imperial Hotel
Do stay at the luxury hotel The Imperial Hotel. It was built in 1931, has the largest collection of colonial and post-colonial art and artifacts anywhere in Delhi, and has a museum and an art gallery.
The rooms are spacious plus it has an amazing spa and beautiful gardens.
What to see?
You can easily spot the 5 Top Places to visit in New Delhi when you google it like the Mughal-era Red Fort, a symbol of India, and the sprawling Jama Masjid mosque, whose courtyard accommodates 25,000.
However, I will add :
Visit the Old City. It is a sad experience but you have to see this.
An old Hindu Temple or visit the Akshardham
The National Museum in New Delhi is a must.
It has various artefacts but I loved the Mughal Miniature Paintings and the jewelry (as you can see from the pictures …. )
