Customer Travel Tip: Beware of the "friendly" people approaching on the street, chances are 99% of them are trying to get you into a tricky business to get your cash. Seriously, it's sad, but that's the impression I have to share from the city after 1 week

Liked: Leaving!

Disliked: The city is filled with people trying to get money from you, either tricky rigshau, people on the street acting friendly but actually trying to get you into some scaming travel agency, being constantly harrased just because you look an outsider gets old after 2 days. Honestly, if you want to see India, go somewhere else, and if you want to see Taj Mahal, just book a 1 day stay in Agra, see it and leave. That's all there's to see
