Artfully mixing the meditative and the pandemonius (with just a little extra of the pandemonius!), Delhi is a feast for all the senses. From the buzz and sari-swinging stalls of Chandni Chowk to the soul-stirring tombs of Mughal emperors and the awesome tower of the Qutub Minar, things change every minute in this megalopolis of India. Of course, the food is another top reason to drop in. Meals are all parathas, street-side chaat, and cumin-infused biriyanis, washed down by steaming chai and sugarcane juice. Tempted? You can come here in just 13 hours on cheap flights to Delhi from Australia that go direct. However, the best bargain deals of all tend to be indirect with smaller, regional airlines.
Mughal building maestro Shah Jahan gave Delhi the Red Fort. Today, it's an icon of the country, and a masterwork of historic architecture.
Filigreed cupolas and Persian-style carvings all mark out Humayun's Tomb as one of the most magnificent Mughal creations in India.
Nothing can prepare you for the majesty of this monument to love. Built by the Mughal Shah Jahan, it's home to the tomb of his wife, Mumtaz Mahal.
