Most travelers who visit Delhi usually tend to plan their trips during the daytime. They go visit the historic monuments or take a tour on the HoHo (Hop-on Hop-off) bus that takes them across the NCR. However, the city takes a whole different form after the sunset. For those looking for something nocturnal for their trip, this is the perfect time to go out and explore the nation’s capital,
As such, here are the 6 ways to spend a great night in Delhi.
1. Light Shows Around Famous Monuments
There is no denying that major landmarks like the India Gate and Red Fort are wonderful to look at during the day. Many tourists book their Hyderabad to Delhi flights just for that. But once darkness falls, a different kind of beauty surrounds these places, as soothing light shows enhance the ambiance and the diurnal rush clears up. If you desire, you can even grab a quick bite at many stalls that only operate around these areas after sundown. Still, if you’re for a more fulfilling meal, you will find that covered in further points.
2. A Paranormal Adventure Trip
Throughout the decades, many tales of paranormal activity in Delhi have circulated across the country. You might have a friend or relative who has already told a couple of these during their stay. Should you have the courage to do so, you can join a paranormal investigation trip conducted by trained professionals at any of the sites that are considered haunted. Beware that this is something not for the faint of heart and you need to undergo training to use equipment like night vision and thermal cameras.
3. Visit A Party Hotspot
Another kind of adventure that you can find in nighttime Delhi is by visiting any of the pubs and nightclubs. If your idea of the ideal night is to party till the morning, then there are a couple of spots that you should visit before you and your friends board their Delhi to Hyderabad flights home. You can check out the Privee in Janpath or The Electric Room on Lodhi Road.
4. A Night Safari
Some people like to have a quiet time during the night, something serene and away from any large crowds or concrete buildings. A night safari in Sanjay Van is what those people aspire for. Many agencies offer such adventures, both late-night treks, and camping trips, at very affordable prices. You can even tag along with a friend or two and spend the night close to nature, sharing stories or consuming bonfire marshmallows.
5. Late-Night Meals
Now, here is something for the foodies. If your taste buds need some stimulation in the waning hours and the hotel’s menu doesn’t suffice, you can always take a short trip to any of the late-night dining spots and have a hearty meal. One of the most popular options is a short drive around Murthal and taking in the best of the local cuisine.
6. Midnight Plays
If you truly appreciate art and theatre, this is something worthwhile to check out.
