Travel advices and warnings New Delhi
Delhi's commercial and geographic hub used to be Connaught Place, a fact reflected in the area's hub-and-spokes layout. Connaught Place (commonly referred to as just "C. P. ") remains popular with tourists, particularly backpackers—hence its abundance of beggars, money changers both legitimate and illegitimate, and drug dealers—but it's no longer the capital's nerve center. As development sprawls south, spilling over into suburbs, South Delhi has become the center of social and, to a large extent, commercial life.
