I hope our A.net Indian friends can help me on this one. I have accepted a job as a Continental Express dispatcher. Between now and the 24th of April I'm essentially on vacation. Even though Express Jet is doing business as Continental Express when I make the change from CO to BTA I lose all my built up flying privileges and start over so I want to us the vacation passes up.
I am thinking of flying to India to see the Taj Mahal. I'm trying to see a couple of places around the world in a hurry otherwise I would research this myself. I see both Delhi and Agra are located pretty close to each other, 200 miles or so. Should I take a plane, train, bus, or rent a car? Can the trip be made in one day i.e. leave Delhi, get to the Taj Mahal, do the tour, and get back to Delhi or do I need to get a hotel room in Agra? Any suggestions on hotels if one is necessary? Doesn't have to be 4 star, 2 will do. Do I need a visa to enter the country? How big is the Taj Mahal site? Should I hire a guide in the city or is their a guided tour on site?
Like I said above, I'm trying to arrange several trips in the next two weeks so it's not that I'm lazy, just trying to hurry up the planning stage. Thanks in advance.
