Tourist Info

Delhi is a major international gateway. It’s also a Centre for domestic travel, with extensive bus, rail and air connections. Delhi’s airport can be prone to thick fog in December and January (often disrupting airline schedules), making it wise not to book back-to-back flights during this period


There are two main stations in Delhi – (Old) Delhi train station in Old Delhi, and New Delhi train station at Paharganj; make sure you know which station serves your destination (New Delhi train station is closer to Connaught Place). If you’re departing from the Delhi train station you should allow adequate time to meander through the often-snail-paced traffic of Old Delhi.

There’s also the Nizamuddin train station, south of Sunder Nagar, where various trains (usually for south-bound destinations) start or finish.

Many trains between Delhi and Jaipur, Jodhpur, Bikaner and Udaipur operate to and from Sarai Rohilla train station, about 4km northwest of Connaught Place.

Railway porters should charge between Rs 30 and Rs 40 per bag.


The domestic terminals (Terminal 1) of the Indira Gandhi International Airport are around 15km southwest of Connaught Place.
