If you travel a lot you have the chance to see great places. Most of them are well known but sometimes you find something special.

Everybody knows the Taj Mahal. It’s iconic. Even if you never had the chance to see it in real life you know exactly how it looks. And here lies the problem.

It’s also India’s number 1 tourist attraction and that’s why it is always extremely crowded.
