Mark Twain said about India that it is a country of dreams and romance, but do not leave a trace of these words to me New Delhi, although Delhi is not the whole of India, and if so to speak, "a separate India". But the city is definitely worth a visit! The city draws its flavor and abundance of all kinds of monuments and places of interest. While some accommodation is fashionable districts and hotels, can be a challenge.
