My husband and I will be in Delhi for 2 days as part our 5 day whistlestop trip to India. We arrive on 12th September (Sunday) and leave for Agra on the Shatabdi on 14th (Wednesday), so essentially I have sunday to monday to roam around.
Herein lies my problem. Only upon closer inspection and when I have sat down to jot down an itinerary have I noticed that some places are closed on Mondays and some on Sundays.
Would you guys be kind enough to give me a logical itinerary for those 2 days. I know you must get asked this often and I'd try to figure it out myself if I could but am finding vast amounts of information harder to digest, especially while fasting!
Ideally I didn't want to be stuck inside a car I wanted to metro it or autorickshaw if I can possible help it so as to get an authentic feel for India. Are major tourist spots cover-able by metro?
We're staying in Karol Bagh and our flight lands at 10.20am on the Sunday. I was thinking check in, freshen up, unpack then venture out to Karol Bagh as it's closed on Mondays and I'm a bit of a shopaholic, more when it comes to sarees and all things Indian! Am now thinking I may have to forgo that and opt to see red Fort, Lotus temple etc on the sunday? Alternatively do the jam packed Delhi Darshan/Panickers tour on a monday? What will I miss if I choose to do this on the monday? No AC I know but somethings gotta give!
I still have no idea where things are in relation to each other so the above may not be feasible. In short we want to do the major destinations and shopping- sarees etc for me not really interested in western stuff- I have that readily available here.
Sorry for the long post. Any pointers much appreciated!
