What to See in India for First Time Travelers?
India is a vast and diverse country with lots to see. The most popular destinations are golden triangle cities of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur, which are the best choice for the first time travelers.

You could see the comparison of Old and New Delhi, the Agra Fort and the seventh wonder of the world - Taj Mahal in Agra, and the pink city of Jaipur with its majestic City Palace and Amber Fort.
