There are many ways in which one can discover the city, that is Delhi. You can take a tourist bus or a taxi or devise your own methods.The basic intention should be to discover something new. Some innovative methods would be to take an auto rickshaw or devise a walk or take the metro, better if, it could be a bicycle ride. The idea here is to shun the known modes of transport in the city and to go those places you have never been. Try 'sadar' for example, 'old Delhi would be a good choice, or satellite townships (Gurgaon, Ghaziabad, Faridabad etc.).There are two ways to approach this discovery process, the first is planned process and second the unplanned one.The planned process would inevitably be based on (i) time and (ii) location (of the area you want to discover).
