10 Reasons to Visit India’s Golden Triangle + Qatar – Bucket List Trip!

One of my favorite travel destinations is India, particularly the cities of India’s Golden Triangle. The only downside to traveling there is that it can be pretty expensive. But you can get cash back on trips to India, and other amazing destinations around the world, by booking your trips via offers on the new coupons.com cash back website.

I chose the Qatar & India’s Golden Triangle vacation package through Great Value Vacations, which takes you to Doha, Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. Let’s quickly go through 10 reasons why you need to visit India’s Golden Triangle and a couple of bonus entries in Doha, Qatar!

DELHI, INDIA

Red Fort – A historic fortress and UNESCO World Heritage site that served as the main residence of the emperors of the Mughal Empire. It’s a true testament to the power of the Mughal Empire!

Street Food – Visit Chandni Chowk, a cramped and bustling 17th-century market. Try the parathas and chutneys, aloo kachori, and jalebi there. Also, visit Little Tibet for some spicy Lhaphing and a Tibetan blood sausage called Gyurma. You can also find delicious momos there!
