In a list of ‘world’s best once-in-a lifetime journey’ destinations, the Golden Triangle, or the tourist circuit that connects the national capital Delhi, Agra and Jaipur has featured 21st on the list.
Delhi has always been a favourite among tourists. People make their way to Qutub Minar, Humayun’s Tomb, India Gate among other spots, while many visit Agra to merely witness the Taj Mahal in all its glory.
Curated by various travel journalists, editors and bloggers, an expedition to Antarctica tops 2018’s list followed by a cruise ride in the Galapagos Islands and travelling in the Trans-Siberian Railway.
Let’s take a look at what the top three detinations have to offer.
Expedition To Antarctica
It is the frosty glaciers that travellers apparently prefer to any other place in the world. The list informs that since November to March are the months that the continent can be explored, commuting by ship is one of the best ways to travel. Much of the thrill associated with travelling to Antarctica lies in travelling to the continent. There are several cruise packages available that one can use.
Cruise ride to Galapagos Islands
Often considered as one of the world’s best destinations for viewing wildlife, Galapagos Islands is a group of volcanic islands situated at either side of the Equator at the Pacific Ocean. The remoteness of the islands add a mystique charm to this place but also makes travelling all the more difficult. Since direct flights are not available, tourists must fly either to the José Joaquín de Olmedo International Airport in Guayaquil, Mariscal Sucre International Airport in Quito or else on the mainland Equador. But as they say, it is all worth it in the end.
Travelling in the Trans-Siberian Railway
The Trans-Siberian Railway is a network of railways and connects Moscow and Russian Far East. Covering a length of 9,289 kilometres, it is the world’s longest train journey and has a lot to offer. It took 25 years for it to built and was constructed between 1891 and 1916.
