A Brief Introduction To Your Golden Triangle Tour
Many who travel to India do so with the intention of taking a golden triangle tour as a part of their holiday. This tour takes you through Delhi, Agra and Jaipur – each city is about 4 hours apart and is rich in historical and cultural offerings for you to enjoy. The reason the trip is so popular is that it provides tourists with a pretty good view into the history and culture of Northern India. We have compiled this brief introduction so that you know what to expect.
This city has been the political capital of India for several centuries now. There are a number of sites to visit, including: Lutyen’s Delhi, Connaught Place, the India Gate, Rashtrapati Bhavan, the Red Fort, Chandi Chowk, Humayun’s tomb, Qutub Minar, and the Lodi and Safdarjung tombs.
This city is home to the Taj Mahal (the most famous monument in India and one the 7 Wonders of the Modern World). Other sites that you will see here include: the Agra Fort, Fatehpur Sikri, Sikandra, Itmad-ud-Daula and plenty of markets filled with beautiful wares and trinkets.
Also known as the Pink City, Jaipur is famous for its blue pottery, airy palaces and desert land. Some of the sites that you will experience include: the Hawa Mahal, the City Palace, Jantar Mantar, the Amber Fort and plenty of markets that you will soon find yourself lost in.
What order should you visit the cities in?
Seeing as most tourists will land in Delhi, this is the most logical place for your tour to begin. Whether you visit Agra or Jaipur next, however, will depend on where you intend on going once the trip is over. Some people even travel to Agra, then back to Delhi for a few days and then go to Jaipur – it really depends on how long your holiday is and what you plan on seeing. That said, the most popular route is Delhi to Agra to Jaipur and back to Delhi.
How should you triangulate your tour?
There are three travel options for completing the tour – air, road and rail. We don’t recommend flying, as this method of travel tends to be quite expensive. Plus, once you factor in flight time and travel between the airport, it isn’t actually anymore efficient than the other options. We recommend that you either travel by road (via car, taxi or bus) or that you travel by rail – each of these options will also allow you to take in India’s unique scenery.
We hope that you now have a better idea of what to expect when embarking on your golden triangle tour, as well as the order that you should visit each of the cities in and the most ideal way to travel. Of course, you can always book yourself into a guided tour – this will take care of everything, from transport to accommodation, so might be a good idea. We are sure that your experience will be an unforgettable one, no matter how you decide to travel.
