If you are wondering why Agra is on the list, let me put this out that there is a lot more to Agra than just the Taj Mahal. Agra has the best leather market in the country, where you will get the best quality leather products at dirt cheap prices. The street food is quite delicious and you just claim to have toured Agra without trying the chaat. Visit the Mausamman Burj, which stands as an impeccable historical structure with carvings on the walls, that overlooks the Yamuna river. It will be quite cold in Agra in December, so you should pack your woollens properly, however during the daytime it is much warmer. Agra is a very interesting place to visit in India in December!

How to reach Agra: The nearest airport is in Delhi and you can also reach Agra by road, through the Yamuna Expressway.
Tip: If you're travelling to Agra through the Yamuna Expressway, make sure you plan your journey in such a way that you're off the road at early mornings or late nights. The freeway sees dense fog during the winter months and it is best to travel on the route during broad daylight.
Start packing your things, and get out of the house for that one last epic journey in 2018!
