Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: see the red fort light and sound show at 8pm on your first night. Don't stay two nights in agra.Thats the only night life activity that I saw you could do. Streets get abandoned very early in the night.

Liked: It's an experience you don't want to miss in india if you are into the history of the country and its culture. but there's basically only two things to see, Taj Mahal and red fort. two days is enough

Disliked: Taj mahal ticket is a rip off. ( certainly it's not expensive if you think about it compared to say Europe) but you build this idea in your mind that everything is cheap in india and then suddenly you get faced with the Taj Mahal ticket. But don't not go, best thing to do is convert 750 INR price into dollars (12$?) and understand that india needs that money and your cheap butt can afford it.
