The Delhi city is divided into two parts which is the Old Delhi and the New Delhi. If the Old Delhi is popular because of its historical monuments, mosques and forts, the New Delhi also boasts something far greater. This part of the city is where you can find government structures and this is also where embassies are situated. The structures are considered sights on their own. In fact you can hire a local who can show you the city. However be sure to choose the right one or else you will end up paying more and seeing less. If you will be going to one of the top attractions, you need to keep your belongings secure. New Delhi is also a city where you can find several sites that are listed by Unesco as world heritage sites. This includes the Humayun’s Tomb, Qutub Minar and the well known Red Fort.  It is ideal to visit the spots early to avoid surge of crowd.
