Hi
My name is Aisha and I am going to New Delhi on the 6th August. I will be alone for the first week as my friends are not free till week after. I have been to pakistan but just wanted some tips or companions in new delhi.

Follow the following precautions:

1. Dont hang out too late at night, especially in isolated places
2. Dress modestly
3. If ur lost and need help avoid middle-aged men, seek help from women or elderly people
4. Try to book ur train/air tickets/accomodation in advance

cheers
Arif

Hi Aisha,
I am a female very familiar with Delhi. First some questions to you..
Have you decided on where you are going to stay ? With some family or in a hotel ?
Are you familiar with a bit of Hindi/Urdu , local language of Delhi ? This is going to help you in great way to communicate with local autowallas and other such.

I would echo Arif's suggestions.
Also, don't roam around alone, better would be to take Delhi guide/tourist buses which you can inquire at the airport itself.
Keep your near ones informed about your daily schedule.

Have a nice time.
