Experience Travel Guides are unique in that they are designed to be read in the same way as a novel. They are a valuable resource for those planning to visit a destination, a source of information for those just interested in finding out more about a country or city, and a pleasure for those armchair travelers who just enjoy a good read.
Experience India’s Golden Triangle highlights the more rewarding parts of the area so that those planning a visit can quickly and efficiently plan an itinerary. We locate and detail the best places to see and the top experiences to enjoy, and recommend accommodation options in all areas. All are based on the personal experience of the author.
We capture the personality and the underlying cultural and historical significance of the region. We explore the wonderful temples, mosques, forts and museums, and recommend things to buy, eat, and experience. In the process we meet friendly, helpful people, buy fascinating handicrafts, try tantalizing cuisine, and enjoy charming hospitality.
As more people travel to new destinations, guidebooks grow in importance. Hard-copy books, however, are often out of date before they are printed and users are frustrated by experiences contrary to what is described. This book has no such problem as it was completed updated in December 2017 and can be updated as often as necessary to keep it right up to date. In addition, we post regular updates on the authors’ web page.
Some people believe the internet has all the answers these days but be aware that many internet sites provide out of date or inaccurate information and many are extremely biased. We have done everything possible to ensure our information is up to date and we will continue to update the book as necessary. We also accept no advertising or sponsorship so can give an honest opinion about everything we see.
Please realize, however, that no guidebook can substitute for common sense. The Golden Triangle is a very diverse area and to see it properly requires considerable travel. This can be done by air, rail, or road and the best is probably a combination of all three. Be aware that summer can be very hot while in winter it can get very cold at night.
While many people speak English, India is very different from other English-speaking countries. It is very much an Asian country so you should be aware of the customs and traditions associated with the culture and the various religions, particularly when visiting temples and mosques.
We believe that every place in the world provides unique experiences which make a visit worthwhile. The Golden Triangle has great experiences at every turn. We encourage you to explore, meet the locals, and grab each new opportunity as it arises. Traveling is fun but always do it with care and compassion. In that way, your Golden Triangle experience can provide lifetime memories.
