    Favorite thing: 1. Halt in Delhi for the night.

    2. Use this link for your train tickets - to and fro:
    http://www.makemytrip.com/railways/#

    3. Use abbreviations, New Delhi (NDLS) to Agra Cantonment (AGC), for booking online. Select AC Chair car for Class.

    4. Taj Express dep. 07:10 Arr. 10:07 Rs. 259/- (US$ 50) (M T W T F S S)
    Bhopal Shatabdi dep. 06:15 Arr. 08:12 Rs. 370/- (US$ 75) (M T W T - S S)
    Intercity Express dep. 17:40 Arr. 21:50 Rs. 222/- (US$ 45) (M T W T F S S)

    5. Book hotel rooms in advance.

    6. View Taj Mahal from the rear (across the river) - less crowd, unobstructed view, no timing restrictions. Nearby is site of the Emperor's unfilfilled wish for a black mausoleum.

    Fondest memory: Parathawala Gali - Chadni Chowk. Luscious jalebis thereafter ;-

    Favorite thing: Go to Agra and visit the Taj Mahal.
    The Taj Mahal was built by Emperor Shah Jahan, in memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal in 1652.

    The tomb is built of pure marble and is considered to be one of the seven wonders of the world.

    Volvo To Jaipur

    by anilpradhanshillong Written Feb 15, 2012

    Favorite thing: Rajasthan Government run very comfortable Volvo buses from Bikaner House, Pandara Road, New Delhi to Jaipur and from Sindhi Camp, Main Bus Stand, Jaipur to Bikaner House, Pandara Road, New Delhi.

    These ply every 30 mins-1 hr during the day.

    They take about 5 hours to complete the journey.

    Tickets cost INR 700/- (2011 prices) per passenger.

    The Volvo buses, with bathroom attached, are the newer buses which have no stops along the journey.

    They sell tea, cold drinks, sandwiches and chips inside the buses.

    At the end ofthe journey, you do not feel tired at all.
