Thinking about traveling to India to experience the culture? Before you visit legendary wonders like the magnificent Taj Mahal, consider taking a ride in an auto rickshaw through the city.
What is taking an auto rickshaw like? Similar to traveling in a 3 seat covered go-cart! Don’t worry about the lack of seat belts, doors or air conditioning — save those for the tour bus. These drives are more about adventure than comfort.
Get ready to weave in and out of traffic into places you never thought a vehicle could fit. The fascinating streets of India are bustling as people are working and need to get around by other means. Auto rickshaws, bicycles, buses, cars, trucks, donkey carts, and pedestrians are all trying to get somewhere as they avoid disturbing the cows relaxing in the centre lanes. And just when you think you’ve seen it all, an elephant will come by carrying goods on his back as a group of people looking to set the world record for most people on a rickshaw will go cruising by!
Traveling to India will fill you with adventure, culture, and excitement. This trip is certainly not for the faint of heart but is very well worth considering!
