Tampere to Delhi Flights (TMP-DEL)

Tampere to Delhi

Delhi is divided by a line between those who have and those who don´t have; a trip here can invoke a strong mix of feelings.

Become enchanted by narrow alleys, beautiful temples and the intermingling of culture and religion in Delhi. In Old Delhi, built by the great mogul Shah Jahan in the 1600s, rickshaws zoom along narrow alleys where mosques and Hindu temples stand side by side. In New Delhi, the dazzling administrative buildings, fountains and boulevards, a legacy of British colonial rule, look as if they are from another world. The capital of India is an exotic destination that provides visitors with a unique experience they are unlikely to forget in a hurry. Take in the exotic smells of the spice stalls, shop in the malls or marvel at the sights – and don’t forget to taste the delicious food.
