New Delhi

Designed by notable English architects and proclaimed India's capital in 1931, New Delhi sits in the middle of a sprawling metropolitan area with a population of over 25 million.
Spend the 20th (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. The adventure continues: take in panoramic vistas at Qutub Minar, step into the grandiose world of Red Fort, admire the striking features of Humayun's Tomb, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Birla Mandir Temple (Lakshmi Narayan).

Plan my New Delhi trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Johannesburg, South Africa to New Delhi is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. Traveling from Johannesburg to New Delhi, you'll lose 3.5 hours due to the time zone difference. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from Johannesburg in December: high temperatures in New Delhi hover around 27°C and lows are around 10°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Mon) so you can drive to Agra.

It may very well be fair to call India "incredible," given its mind-boggling diversity of landscapes, climates, cultures, and languages. The world's largest democracy, and second only to China in terms of population, India contains majestic peaks dusted with glistening snow, sun-drenched beaches, ancient hand-carved temples, and sprawling cities jam-packed with people, vehicles, and animals. Many tour India during the country's devotional festivals, which range from immense parades that convert cities into giant performance stages, to simple farming fairs dedicated to relatively obscure local deities. Whenever you choose to vacation in India, make sure you see some of the country's World Heritage Sites, which include the legendary Taj Mahal and Chilika Lake, the planet's second-largest lagoon.
