How to stay local in Delhi

Delhi is a melting pot of different cultures around the world. It is the city that has been ruled by Prithviraj Chauhan, Sher Shah Suri, Sultans, Mughals and Britishers. It boasts of incredible heritage and culture. No doubt, it is a bustling metropolis and a seat of Indian political power. Furthermore, Delhi boasts of highest per capita income among all Indian states.

According to India Tourism statistics 2016, out of all Foreign tourist arrival in India, almost 30% Foreign tourists land in Delhi airport. Meanwhile, a foreign tourist stays in Delhi for 2 nights before embarking on an all India trip. With so much of talk around sustainable tourism, a traveler today wish to witness and experience the local culture rather than see it and let it vanish by staying in a hotel and visiting a few places of attraction. Therefore, for today’s travelers, it is important to know how Indians live and celebrate festivals, what do they eat for breakfast, how do they cohabit and interact with their each other and their neighbors. Regrettably, a traveler cannot obtain such an experience in a hotel. This ‘Local experience’ can be obtained only by staying in an Indian Home (BnB) while co-habiting with an Indian family.
