A Tour of the South

A travel blog entry by george.lawson

The Zarim Hotel was a luxury to return to. As usual I spent far too long faffing around by washing my clothes and sorting out my personal hygiene, a problem that desperately needed sorting out. But that's what I do when I have a lot of time- I faff. And I faff so much to the extent that I still leave things to the last minute. It’s human …

Agra & the Taj Mahal

A travel blog entry by bogdan88

We arrived in Agra home to the Taj Mahal just before midday to yet again another army of rickshaw drivers, many of which had waited for us to get off the train and followed us out of the station. Along the way out each one offered us a cheaper alternative to the hotel we wished to stay, many also told us that our hotel had burned down a few weeks …

Agra: The Taj Mahal

A travel blog entry by jamesgeorge232

Hello again. This relatively quick insert of my blog is about my relatively quick time in Agra, India.

Having arrived very late at night after yet another wildly late Indian train we had little time before the intended early roll call to see the Taj at dawn.

For those that know me well, dawn is not something I am likely to see …

Goodbye Delhi, Hello Belly!

Unfortunately, we thought we were in the clear until Dasha felt a rumble and tumble down there. It turned out she got Delhi Belly. Also known as Montezumba's revenge, the term "Delhi Belly" refers to traveler's diarreaha. It's a common bug that travelers experience, probably over 40% get it. It doesn't feel …

The Aggravations Of Agra.

Agra is the home of the Taj Mahal, a spectacular and stunning monument to love. There doesn't seem to be much else to love about Agra, (we did try), but the Taj well and truly made up for minor Agra disasters like bedbugs and overbooked train seats!

Our trip to Agra began with a 5 hour bus journey on a local bus to the railhead at Jhansi. …

    They had great food and great service. It was a little slow to get our food, but it was so worth it because of the view of the Taj Mahal. The price did not matter because we were able to watch the sunset on the Taj. Just spectacular.

    sheets had a few stains, bathroom was kind of a joke. no sink, no hot water, weird old squatty potty half-covered up with some boards, door didn't close all the way and only locked from the outside.

    Clean room with sat TV and hot water. Hotel gave us an extra sheet and 2 towels for free. Friendly service. We stayed in a room in the new section of the hotel for 500 R a night. Only thing is it can be a noisy at times with people talking in the hallways or staff movings things around in the hallway. Rooftop has amazing view of the Taj. We were happy here.
