Delhi – the sprawling capital city of India – is a place of two halves. You’ll fly into New Delhi, where futuristic lotus temples, a busy riverfront and jumbled streets vie for your attention. On the other hand, Old Delhi is a step backwards in time. Rainbow rickshaws and cows jam the streets. And at the heart of it sits the centuries-old Red Fort.
The shortest flights take around 17 hours 10 minutes with one stop. The longest flights include an overnight stopover and could last up to 64 hours.

Delhi is a world away from Auckland. You could take that literally – after all, flights from Delhi to Auckland take over 17 hours. And the subtropical climate sometimes sees a 20°C increase in temperature when compared to New Zealand. But really, it’s the all-or-nothing approach to life that sets Delhi apart. Rickshaws hurtle down the narrow streets of Old Delhi. ‘Chaat’ vendors call from their food carts, enticing you to pick up fried potato bites, mango dips and samosas. Then there are the larger-than-life monuments – the Red Fort, India Gate, the Lotus Temple and Humayun’s Tomb.
