Going to India for culture?

Before you visit such iconic Indian wonders like the Taj Mahal, consider taking an auto-rickshaw ride through the city.

First of all, taking the auto-rickshaw is like taking a ride in a 3 seated covered go-cart. Don’t worry about the lack of seatbelts, doors, or air conditioning, save that for the tour bus. These drives are more adventure than comfort.

Weaving in and out of traffic into places you would never think a vehicle could fit one sees the regular assortment of traffic plus a whole lot more. Cities in India are working city and people need to get around by any means. Other auto-rickshaws, bicycles, busses, cars, trucks, donkey carts along with pedestrian traffic are all trying to get somewhere while making sure they don’t disturb the cows relaxing in the center lane. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, an elephant meanders by carrying goods on it’s back down the road while what can only be described as group of people looking to set a world record for most people on a rickshaw, goes cruising by.

Adventure, culture, not for the weak of heart but definitely worth considering.
