Fodor's Travel Guides never disappoint and this one, in particular, is no exception. The writers and the editor did a superb job putting together this fantastic guide, with full descriptions of places, to satisfy all your demands for information on how to fully explore India at its best.
I have never been in that region and looking at this guide made me want to go and visit many places. This guide goes deep into details on every attraction that you can find in that country.
They propose the golden triangle itinerary for an 11-day trip that covers the most important places in Delhi, Jaipur, Agra (The Taj Mahal) and Fatehpur Sikri, besides giving you high-level explanations of the history of each place.
Suggested attractions to visit have a reference price and hours of operation. Other add-ons proposed are Mumbai and Goa from Delhi, and Varanasi and Khajuraho, also from Delhi.
Finally, the "Where to Eat", "Where to Stay", "Shopping", and "Nightlife" sections of the guide are a tremendous help when you are planning your trip.
This travel guide of India is an outstanding result from a combined effort of eight different writers.
Fodor's Travel, a division of Random House Inc, published the book on April 14, 2015.
