Thought to be more than 5,000 years old, India's capital is one of the world's oldest existing cities. Having been destroyed and rebuilt 11 times, Delhi has a colorful history which is represented by a collection of ancient monuments and buildings, including three UNESCO World Heritage sites.
Visitors to Delhi should be aware that many scam artists and pickpockets are in operation. People offering advice, especially taxi drivers are often unreliable and first time visitors should avoid admitting their lack of experience in India as they are likely to be targeted by scam artists.
Delhi is a thriving city, with endless opportunities for fun and enjoyment. Aside from shopping, visitors can enjoy a host of activities such as rock climbing, horseback riding, ballooning and boating. A number of expansive lakes are in close proximity to Delhi, and provide the opportunity for visitors to escape the chaos of the city and lap up the surrounding scenery and wildlife.
The majority of Delhi's notable sights are located within the Old Delhi quarters; however, New Delhi also has an abundance of prominent structures which attract hordes of visitors each year.
