New Delhi

The main area for cheap accommodation in Delhi is the Paharganj area. The Main Bazaar begins right opposite the New Delhi train station. This area is crammed with a variety of budget hotels starting from around 7USD for a room.

Trains to all over India leave from the New Delhi train station. Foreigners must purchase their tickets from the International Tourist Bureau located up the stairs behind the main ticket office.

Delhi has a good metro system with trains reaching most of the main areas and attractions in the city, including the airport. Prices range from 10 to 60 rupees (0.12USD to 0.72USD) depending on the length of the journey and trains run frequently. The metro stop for the New Delhi train station and Paharganj is called "New Delhi". The airport line also starts from this station.

Hauz Khas is an Urdu term meaning "Royal Tank" and was named after the ancient water reservoir which was built by Alauddin Khilji in 1296 to supply water to Siri Fort. The remains of the reservoir is now a lake that stands at the center of the Hauz Khas Complex, which also contains a 14th century Madrasa (Islamic school), mosque, tomb and pavilions. The complex is located within a series of forested parks scattered with the tombs of royal personalities that ruled in the area between the 14th and 16th centuries. If you are looking for a break from the hustle-bustle of the city then stroll for an hour or two along the peaceful paths and look out for the mysterious domed buildings appearing between the trees.

Hauz Khas is located in southern Delhi, a 2 km walk or a 50 rupee tuk-tuk ride from Hauz Khas metro station.
