INDIA’S GOLDEN TRIANGLE
The sites, sounds and smells will delight.
There’s an eclectic range of places to explore in the massive subcontinent of India, from the Himalayas in the north to the beaches and canals of Kerala at the southern tip. Some spend months traveling one of the world’s largest countries and only experience a fraction of the unique beauty, flavours and adventures that transform from state to state out your train window.
Many first-time travelers to India elect to visit the Golden Triangle of tourist destinations—Delhi, Agra and Jaipur.
Delhi, the country’s capital, has some of the country’s best cuisine, in both back alley food stalls and high end restaurants. Try the spicy vegetarian curries and the rich lamb stews. Agra is home to the Taj Mahal, one of the manmade wonders of the world. Then explore the royal architecture of Jaipur, also known as the “Pink City”.
This trip could be three days or three weeks and you’ll barely have scratched the surface.
