Hello. My name is Muskaan and I am a law student from India. Currently I am on an Erasmus exchange to a University in Vilnius, Lithuania and I will be here until January. I look forward to travel to as many European countries as possible in the next four months. While I love to party and have a good beer, I also love to enjoy the beauty of nature. I am here looking for travel buddies to make my travel experiences even better.

Solo travel experience

I've visited Delhi solo and chose to stay in the Connaught Place district, recommended by my Indian colleagues. I found the area to be secure and comfortable during my stay. During the day, I explored the city alone and visited many tourist attractions. Additionally, I took a day trip to Agra to witness the beauty of the Taj Mahal.

Solo travel experience

Delhi has so many places to see - the red fort, qutub minar and lotus temple to name a few. And getting from one place to the other is fastest by metro train, taxi takes forever unless you're going nearby. Anywhere in central Delhi is good to stay. I won't recommend going under 4 star hotels. I know the cost would be slightly higher, but it'll guarantee clean, mosquito free, noise free accommodation.
