      Please do let me know everything worth knowing about the region.

      The Mughal Heritage Walk, Agra, INDIA

      India Aug 11, 2015 at 2:04 PM

      Hi Everyone,
      I am wanting to do this walk in Agra, India. I have done the usual Google searches to find out how one can go about organising this walk but have come to a dead end. A lot of the websites I've tried are no longer in existence or the sites I have found only have this walk (which is only a couple of kilometres long) as part of a bigger tour that covers a couple of days. I will only be in Agra for a day and overnight (in January 2016) as I have been here before but would really like to do the Mughal Heritage Walk, Any suggestions, help or guidance as to how one can organise this tour in advance would be greatly appreciated.

    • Trains, couple of questions

      by Snailman83 Online Now May 5, 2015 at 7:12 AM

      I've been looking into this and as my itinerary starts to take shape for an Delhi-Agra-Varanasi trip I still can't fully understand the train system so I have a few questions.

      1. Is it absolutely necessary to book in advance, some sites say 90 days in advance which is difficult because I have yet to decide exactly when I'm going and if I do, the likelyhood is that I will be making the booking a month or less before I go. I'm also hoping to stay about a month keeping my schedule flexible so having prearranged train tickets gets in the way of that.

      2.Will I really not be able to get seats if I wait to book once I'm there? I know and read of the quota for tourists but from the posts I've read it seems like such a lottery.


      3. Trains! There are so many of them it's confusing. How do I choose the best one, are they all the same, is it down to which has the shortest travel time?

      4. I will be flying in and departing from Delhi so my plan is to take a train from Delhi to Agra and either go back to Delhi for a few days then go to Varanasi or go straight to Varanasi from Agra after spending a few days there. Any suggestions on which would be better? I read somewhere all trains from Delhi pass through Agra anyway so there is no point in going back to Delhi before going to Varanasi from Agra.


      One more thing about that is I'm also planning trips to Jaipur, Lucknow and Allahabad or some other places but I haven't decided yet, and what if I decide to stay longer in one place and have to change up when I'm there, will I have room to make changes once tickets are booked?

    • Layover in Delhi airport at night

      by sputnik906 Online Now Aug 26, 2014 at 7:32 PM

      Hi guys,

      I am a solo Canadian female traveler who will travel to India in November to attend a friend's wedding. So far, the routes presented to me all seem to require me to arrive in New Delhi airport just shortly after midnight, and I can take my connecting flight early in the morning at about 6am. They will be two separate flights so I actually have to exit the luggage area, and go through check-in and customs all that for the morning flight.

      I am, of course, weary of this arrangement, but I don't have much of a choice. My question is now whether or not one can kill time at the airport. Technically I presume I can check-in already shortly before 5am. If not, are there decent hotels nearby which are safe? Security is the biggest concern for me right now.

      Any thoughts?

      I scheduled a vacation stopover in Delhi for 5 days. I'd like to find serene/clean/natural/spiritual (are all of these possible?) places to stay and visit during these days. I was thinking I could take a little plane ride to the DED

Does anyone have a recommended itinerary for someone that just likes nature? I prefer cool weather so I think this is the perfect time to visit. (By the way, I travel to Bangalore occasionally for work and am hoping that the northern part of India is not as polluted!)
