Delhi, the capital city of India, is frequented by many tourists looking to explore the culture and entertainment of this vastly growing city. Stately monuments, picturesque palaces and decadent gardens await visitors to Delhi so there is plenty to see and do. Stop off at Rashtrapati Bhavan palace or take a look at the India Gate which was inspired by the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Lodi Gardens will take visitors away from the hustle and bustle of the city but those who want to find some pretty trinkets and eat some of the local food can browse Chandni Chowk market. Of course, you may be distracted by the beautiful sights and the busy city life, but this is all the more reason to stay alert and aware of your safety.
Stay vigilant when visiting Delhi
Staying aware of your surroundings while in Delhi will ensure that you don’t fall prey to scams and thieves. Tourists who admit they are first-time visitors often fall victim to touts claiming to know the area so stick to properly organised tours to avoid this. There is often complaint of ‘Delhi Belly’ when travellers are new to the area. This is often acquired from eating poorly-cooked meat so it may be best to stick to vegetarian food or cook the food yourself thoroughly. Unfortunately, women can feel a little less safe than men in Delhi so it is best to have a companion and stick to well-lit areas. Temperatures can reach uncomfortable levels so rehydrate as often as possible and stick to the shade if it gets too hot.
