It’s a metro city so carry light baggage and be confident and prepare for a lot of walking.

A lot of job opportunities but the most polluted and corrupt city. Health will deteriorate due to stress. Best to avoid.

Sunita, says: 2023

If you are moving to Delhi, stay in chosen colonies of South Delhi – depends on your budget. Be watchful of the healthcare – it can be expensive if it comes to hospitalisation. Food can range from awesome to ghastly. So watch out. Water quality is not great. Pollution kicks in around October and runs through till March. Can be very bad. Other than that, the city is great. Awesome heritage. Cheap for those with Dollars, Euros, Dirhams.

Delhi is a huge metropolitan city which is the best out of all the other metropolises in India.

Its pros are wide roads, a good variety of food and a vibrant nightlife. Plus the metro rail ensures good connectivity to the NCR regions of Gurugram and Noida. It also has lots of historical monuments and temples which one can visit.

Its cons are pollution (it’s the most polluted metropolis of India), traffic (it gets really difficult to move around during weddings and festive seasons), crime rate is still pretty high (that is due to high population of 32 million compared to all of Australia’s 25 million or Canada’s 38 million).

Delhi is a very clustered and overpopulated city. Although, with the population, come banes like, bustling markets, lively communities and very accommodating living spaces. Delhi is a metropolitan city, and thus, has its various perks like malls and food courts almost in every part of it. Delhi is the heart and the capital of India, and anyone, if given the opportunity to live there, should definitely take it.

Residence location – Select a location that is closest to your workplace. Traffic during peak hours is horrendous and must be avoided. If you can’t find a suitable location nearest to your workplace, then look for a location that will be opposite to the peak hour rush.

Metro Access – Select your residence and work location where Metro is easily accessible.

Food – Delhi has various options to tickle your taste buds. But if you like Indian street food, you should definitely visit Old Delhi.

Language – The majority of people speak English and Hindi. But you might see many people talking in their native languages such as Haryanvi, Punjabi, and others.

Safety – According to my perspective, Delhi is worse than the rest of the country. If you plan ahead of time you’ll save yourself a lot of risks and have a trouble-free life.

Travel/Connectivity – If you are a wanderlust person, Delhi is blessed. You can visit Rajasthan in the West or Himalayas in North just in 6 hours travel. Plus Delhi has a excellent connectivity with others country too.

Consular Access – As Delhi is the capital of India. All countries that have diplomatic relations with India have their presence in Delhi. So, if you are a foreigner and you miss your home culture. You will benefit from this proximity.

Though heavily polluted, Delhi is a beautiful city. Also, it is quite crowded and overly populated. Delhi is referred to as ‘Dilwalon ki Dilli’ very often, and it holds true in a sense as people tend to just think and act from their hearts much. Delhi is a hub of Indian Politics, Potpourri of Cultures, Media, Hospitality, Education, Liberated Attitudes, etc. and has a rich cultural heritage. Living is easy in terms of finding an affordable place to live. Delhi is not safe in the dusk – for ANYONE. Do not travel unaccompanied/ alone during odd hours, if possible. Please try to be at your place by 10 PM. Keep some urgent phone/helpline numbers handy, if you can.

Anurag, says: 2020

Delhi, India’s capital territory, is a massive metropolitan area in the country’s north. One should be aware of the traffic.

3. Bargaining is necessary art here, and one that everyone can learn.
4. Take precautions that means always keep your mobile phones on. Before going to any place make sure you know about that place.

Know all the tourist places like Red Fort, Qutub Minar. Know the charges he/she have to pay if he wants to reside in it. Considering the location of residing is must as there are many areas which are not so well and are of low standard like Azadpur, Jahangir Puri etc. He/She has to accept traffic he/she will deal with. If you are tourist or thinking of moving in Delhi, you should consider all these factors.

Delhi is one of the renowned metro cities of India. From schools to hospitals, everything is fairly connected. This urban city, therefore, provides a lot of opportunities to the immigrants. The living standard of people here is far better than other cities of this country. Having said that, your decision to migrate to Delhi is well appreciated.

Delhi has a hot climate in summers. It’s one of the busiest places in India. Large crowds and snarling traffic are a common sight here. The rents are usually very high in urban localities. Indian food is prevalent here. People are friendly. There are some famous monuments. Delhi is capital of India.

After having spent almost three decades in this city, Delhi is very multifaceted. It cannot be described using a single adjective. Delhi has been kind enough to provide livelihood to people coming from places whose names no one has heard before. It has given them the thread that holds their sustenance. On the other hand, it has been ruthless enough to some, who seek a new identity somewhere else, in search of some calm and anonymity.

Be prepared to face varying weather patterns because summers are quite hot here with multitudes of loo and humid days which is followed by a messy monsoon period and then winters which get quite chilly. if one is not comfortable in a certain type of climatic condition, then they should reconsider because the weather is a major deterrent for many.

Delhi is the capital of India. It is a beautiful city. It stands on the bank of river Yamuna. Delhi originated during the Mahabharata time, about 1000 BC. Since then it took seven births. During this period, it faced Aryans, Mughals and the British. Delhi is divided into two parts – Old Delhi and New Delhi. New Delhi is very beautiful. It was constructed by Lutyens. The old Delhi was constructed during the Mughal period. Old Delhi is very crowded. In New Delhi, there are beautiful parks and gardens. Nehru Park, Talkatora Garden, Lodhi Garden and Buddha Park are worth seeing gardens. Old Delhi has very majestic buildings of great historical importance too. Delhi is a great center of trade, industries and education. Karol Bagh, Chandni Chowk, Connaught Place and Lajpat Nagar are beautiful and famous shopping markets. Delhi is the heart of India. Delhi is a historical city. The old buildings remind us about its glorious past. The people come to Delhi to see the historical places like Qutub Minar, Red Fort, Jama Masjid, Parliament House, National Museum, Gurudwara Sis Ganj, India Gate and Zoo. I like it very much. Today Delhi has a rapid transport system in the country with its Metro-trains and government has decided to make it a world class city. Moving in Delhi would be a great experience for anyone.

He must be aware of the main transport a airways or trains to the city. At once to settle a good hotel for a few days. Above all the climate. The person must be clear about the job he is going to take up. The area where he is to do the job.

Delhi is the best metropolitan city in India one can move to. There are ample work opportunities for everybody, ranging from domestic work to jobs in Multinational corporations. The rent is among the lowest in the country. The districts are extremely well connected through the Metro system and the bus services operate in a timely and efficient manner. The street food is cheap and internationally renowned. The major problem with this city though, is that the crime rates are also the highest in the country. It’s a great place to work and live a meaningful life.

Delhi is blessed with several gardens and botanical houses which are again one of the features that Delhi is famous for. The Garden of five senses, the Lodi Gardens, the Buddha Jayanti Park and Nehru park are some of these gardens which have made Delhi famous among nature lovers. Delhi is famous for its tourist attractions, food and its marketplaces.

Delhi is colorful. I don’t have a more appropriate or simpler word to describe it. You will find people speaking two to three languages and sometimes, a mix of them in the same conversation. It has a diverse culture as it consists of people from many other cities in India. when you visit Delhi, you may be surprised by how different the people there are from you. You may also be surprised to find many people just like you.

Delhi is a beautiful city. When moving to Delhi, the first thing you need is not to be intimidated by what you’ve heard about Delhi or the people of Delhi. They can come off as snotty and entitled, but mostly they’re actually very warm. Delhi takes some getting used to, but when you do that, it becomes a home away from home.

Shruti, says: 2020

The one aspect of Delhi you’ll probably love is the city’s food culture. The street food is to die for. Chaat, paranthas, butter chicken, chhole bhature and more such dishes have to be on your must-have list. But the one thing that you’ll most likely get addicted to is momos. If you’re hungry and lost, there’ll probably be a momo wala somewhere near you. For a city so green, the city’s pollution levels will astound you. Buy a mask (the smart masks, not the flimsy surgical ones) from the nearest chemist just in case your lungs aren’t taking well to the new air. October and early November are particularly trying times.
