By far, the best, easiest way to travel within India is by air (more on other modes of travel later). Its interesting, no matter where in the world you travel, however exotic the locale, the airports are all the same (there is definitely something to be said about structure and familiarity when is comes to flying). The flight to Delhi (about 90 minutes) is fast, efficient, and very safe.

After the frenetic chaos of Mumbai, the structure and order of New Delhi is like a breath of fresh British colonial air. Broad, leafy, tree-lined boulevards, massive parliament buildings, and awe-inspiring architecture, this city definitely has a European feel. Of course, even Sir Edwin Lutyens couldn’t begin to affect a change to ancient Old Delhi, still a labyrinth of passages that would make even Sherlock Holmes sweaty and confused.
