From Namma Bengaluru to the Bustling Streets of Delhi: Crafting the Perfect Itinerary

Imagine Delhi. The aroma of spices fills the air, travelling from overcrowded market stalls. Towering monuments whisper tales of ancient empires. Every corner promises a delicious street food adventure. Delhi is a living museum where history and culture come alive.

No wonder Bangaloreans, along with travellers countrywide, can’t resist its charm. If you’re planning a trip from Bangalore to Delhi, this itinerary can help you unlock the magic of this incredible city!

Your Perfect Bengaluru to Delhi Trip Itinerary

First things first. Before you start your exploration of Delhi, decide how you will get there from Bengaluru. The most convenient way is to book a Bangalore to Delhi flight. It will help you reach the capital city within 3 hours.

You can also reserve a train seat from Yeshwantpur, but mind, you need to spend 33 hours and 10 minutes to reach Delhi. You can also opt for a bus, though this may take up to 2 days and 2 hours. We recommend flying from New Delhi to Bangalore since it will help you save a lot of time (if you’re short on time).

Moreover, consider spending 2 nights and 3 days for a suitable stay in Delhi. This allows for two days of classic city sightseeing and immersing yourself in Delhi’s culture, with an extra day to explore the suburbs at a relaxed pace.

We recommend catching a late-night flight the day before your planned exploration and booking tickets well in advance to take advantage of attractive deals offered by most airline companies (if you’re travelling by plane).

Day 1 in Delhi

As soon as you have completed all the check-in procedures in your hotel, freshen up and rest before you start your Delhi exploration.

7:00 AM to 8:00 AM: Capture the most iconic attractions on the Rajpath

Begin your first day in Delhi a bit early to experience the true essence of its political significance before the roads get congested with traffic. Take a morning stroll or drive along the Rajpath in order to discover the highlights of Lutyens’ Delhi and capture stunning, sunlit pictures in front of iconic buildings.

8:30 AM to 1:00 PM: Indulge in the cultural and gastronomic delights of Old Delhi

Delhi is one of the heavens for foodies. Have your breakfast with some desi flavours like Chhole Kulche, Halwa Nagori, Stuffed Parathas, Kachori Aloo, and more at one of the famous food joints hidden in the nooks and corners of Old Delhi.

After breakfast, visit Delhi’s old heritage structures, such as the Jama Masjid, Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib, Havelis of Begum Samru, Mirza Ghalib, and Zeenat Mahal.

As you wander through the lively streets of Chandni Chowk, uncovering its hidden treasures, be sure to take a break and treat yourself to some mouthwatering delights like Golgappe, Papdi Chaat, Dahi Bhalle, Rabri Falooda, and other local favourites that Delhiites love.

1:00 PM to 4:00 PM: Delve into the Mughal Magnificence at Red Fort

It only makes sense to save the best for the last! Dedicate a few hours to explore the UNESCO-listed Red Fort.

End your Day 1 adventure through history and explore Connaught Place – Delhi’s shopping and entertainment hub. But remember to unwind and take it easy after all the sightseeing and shopping. Experience Delhi’s lively nightlife with dinner, drinks, or simply hanging out!

Day 2 in Delhi

10:00 AM to 11:30 AM: Visit the Centuries-old Qutub Minar Complex

Begin your second day on a relaxing note. Leave the lodge or hotel after having breakfast and head straight to the tallest brick minaret in the world—the Qutub Minar. It’s listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

11:00 PM to 2:00 PM: Explore the quirky cafés and mystical ruins of Hauz Khas

Spend an hour strolling leisurely through the historic Hauz Khas Complex. Explore remnants of the past like the Hauz Khas Lake (formerly a royal tank), a mosque from the Lodhi era, and an ancient tomb.

This area, rich in history, puts forward an interesting contrast to its lively modern present. After exploring the site, have a tasty meal at one of the trendy cafes or restaurants in Hauz Khas Village.

2:00 PM to 4:30 PM: Admire the architectural beauty of Lotus Temple and capture the grand setting of Humayun’s Tomb

Witness the exquisite flower-shaped Lotus Temple and take some peaceful moments inside. Then, venture to Humayun’s Tomb in eastern Delhi to continue exploring. Discover this architectural masterpiece that inspired centuries of Mughal innovations, including the Taj Mahal.

4:45 PM to 5:30 PM: Take a stroll around the historical Lodhi Garden

Continue driving along Lodhi Road until you reach Lodhi Garden, a historical park adorned with numerous ancient structures, such as Shisha Gumbad and Bara Gumbad and the tombs of Sikandar Lodi and Mohammed Shah.

5:45 PM to 9:00 PM: Indulge in budget shopping and street grubs

Before your last day in Delhi, enjoy shopping and try delicious street food in Delhi style. Explore the lively Central Market in Lajpat Nagar, which is filled with shops and food stalls. Indulge in branded shopping at South Ex or enjoy lively haggling at Sarojini Nagar market. End your Delhi trip at Dilli Haat, where you can shop, eat, and watch cultural performances.


So, there you have it! This itinerary provides a framework for experiencing the captivating spirit of Delhi over a 2-day and 3-night trip. Remember, depending on your interests and pace, you can adjust this itinerary to suit your travel style.

Now, with your Delhi to Bangalore flight, train, or bus ticket clutched in hand, it’s time to return home (or perhaps continue your journey elsewhere!). While Delhi’s magic might leave you wanting more, every adventure has its end, and this one serves as a beautiful beginning for future memories.
