Indian Rupee (INR)
One of the eleven districts that make up Delhi, New Delhi has wide tree-lined avenues filled with modern buildings and more green space than the districts it’s sandwiched between. As the capital city of India – which has more young people than any other country worldwide – New Delhi is the beating heart of a youth culture fizzing with energy and fuelled by the internet. A plate of food is a great way to get a better understanding of Delhi and you can find something delicious at every turn, from hole-in-the-wall eateries serving up time-honoured dishes to upscale restaurants led by young chefs offering a new take on tradition. Music also plays a leading role in the capital’s cultural identity with a growing community-led scene of independent labels, collectives and radio stations championing local artists. Beyond music, New Delhi-based fashion designers are making their mark at home and abroad, using clothes as a means to tackle the country’s conservatism when it comes to gender politics.
