If you have visited the cities of New Delhi and Mumbai, you might be well aware of their tourist attractions. Where the national capital carries a historical influence in its culture and food habits, the financial capital on the other hand, showcases a vibrant side of the Indian lifestyle. Here’s an account of a tour from New Delhi to Mumbai, which you can try too!
Though both the cities are quite far, taking a flight or train is recommendable, but if you’re looking for a memorable experience, try covering the distance in a car. You can hire a New Delhi to Mumbai Taxi or drive your own vehicle for this journey. Starting off with the national capital, Delhi has innumerable historical spots all over the area. The city is divided into two parts – the historically rich Old Delhi and fast-paced New Delhi. The older part is also famously known as the fortified city, as it was during the days of Mughals and Muslim rulers. The fortified area consists of famous monuments like the Red Fort and Jama Masjid, and was the seat of power during the Mughal regime. After touring through these famous monuments, don’t forget to satiate yourself with some of the best known street food delicacies and even buy some amazing stuffs from the age old market existing since Mughal days.
After an exciting day at Old Delhi, it is time to move out and admire the wonders of the new city. The central part of the city is named after British architect Edwin Lutyen, who’s responsible for the marvels like Rashtrapati Bhavan, secretariat building and other imperial building and bungalows. Lined with huge trees of banyan and palm, the Lutyens Delhi (as it is called) houses several government offices and homes to several big names, including politicians, businessmen, media moguls and industrialists. About fifty percent of city’s green cover can be found in this area, along with wide roads and several interesting places like Connaught Place and Gurudwara Bangla Sahib. Apart from this, the rest of Delhi is a mix of commercial and residential areas, with huge flyovers and metro routes criss-crossing each other.
Moving out from Delhi, you’ll come across large spaces of green lands which will soon replace the scenery by the ancient monuments of Jaipur and further Udaipur in a span of 11 hours via NH 79. You will have to stop by the hotels en-route the city for a night halt. Once you are in Udaipur, the next 820 kilometres will be much more smoother and comfortable. But for that you will have to take up NH-8 passing through Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Bharuch and Surat the next day. The trip from Ahmedabad to Vadodara is equally scenic and panoramic and will lure you to take your cameras out and take many stopovers. You might have to take a short nap to re-energize yourself. Your destination – Mumbai – will be nearly 4 hours away from you once you cross the Surat borderline.
In the end, what we promise to you is a trip worth a lifetime and an experience worth treasuring for ages to come! So, don’t miss a chance to push your limits and explore countries by sitting on that couch! Get Going. Bon Voyage.
This enthralling journey can be done in your private vehicle or if you wish, you can take a New Delhi to Mumbai Cab.
