Taj Mahal, this classic is a must. You will have seen it a million times on print before you get there, but it takes nothing away from the beauty when you first see it, at sunrise. Really if you don’t get your arse out of bed to see it for sunrise you’ll be disappointed. Watch the video of my Taj Mahal visit here:

Now the Golden Temple of Amritsar is beautiful, but visually not a competitor to the Taj Mahal. It is the hospitality of the Sikh that make it the full experience of the visit equal to that of a visit to Agra. Three days and nights of food and sleeping place they offered me, and anyone else.

Trains. Mostly the crowd forces you to hang onto a open door. If you are lucky you have the space to sleep like these boys.

India has an extraordinary kitchen. Candy, sugarcane juice, dosa, Blue lassis, after dinner freshners and there is much much more. Just try not to get sick (to often).
