When to go to go

 The city of New Delhi can reach temperatures up to 100°F. The perfect time to go to New Delhi is around the fall,  that’s when the temperatures start to go down and the humidity level starts to go down.

It is good to go around the beginning of spring because it’s at a decent temperature. If you go in the summer it gets really hot. 

Transports

New Delhi is a district located in Delhi. Traveling around  New Delhi you start out using taxis. Since its a well-known place there would be plenty of traffic jams, it’s better to travel using the metro.  Always check the hotel you reside in before going out.

The country of India is a cash economy, you can still use credit cards in most of New Delhi’s restaurants, hotels, and stores. It’s good to have Indian main form of currency which is called rupees and it is not the same as The Legend of Zelda rupees.

It’s good to have rupees on hand for taxis and other small purchases awhile traveling around New Delhi. You can’t bring rupees outside the country if your not a legal resident of India, but there is plenty of ATMs to go to just make sure you exchange or pull out cash when you arrive at the airport.
