Dhaba hopping in midnight
The small outskirts of Delhi are no less in terms of food, after taking the whole day exploring Delhi, ride to these Dhabas with your gang for the ultimate fun and food. Here are the recommendations.
What other places you can add to your trip?
You can find a lot of places along the Agra and Jaipur route such as Bharatpur for it's wildlife sanctuary, Karauli for a village experience and Dausa for the picturesque temple. Hence, bus is the best option to reach these places, as the bus frequency from the local bus stop is quite good. If looking for a little more comfort, grab a bus from any private travel agency, which will cost you merely Rs. 400 to Jaipur in a NON-AC bus with comfy seats.
Be aware of..
The prices charged by everyone from food commodity to the travel expenses, do cross check the distance in latter cases. A rickshaw guy wanted Rs 500 for a mere 3km ride, but after argument which was followed by his fowl talk, I still had to pay Rs. 100 for such a small distance. So try to settle the price beforehand and also bargain as much as you can on any souvenir as well. The prepaid taxi board outside the Agra railway station will also serve as a shock to you.
Warnings about guides..
Do not rely on any person that comes your way as a guide, as most of them are just doing this for the heck of money with no genuine knowledge about the place. Either buy an Audio guide or hire authorised guides from trusted sources.
