Golden Triangle Tour in India gets Booster Shots for 2010 Commonwealth Games

Delhi in India is playing the host to 2010 Commonwealth Games and India tourism industry is expecting and huge influx of tourists during the season. Most visitors who will travel to India for the Games are expected to visit Taj Mahal at Agra, and the royal icon of Rajasthan Tourism – Pink City of Jaipur, thereby completing the famous Golden Triangle tour circuit of North India. Several steps are being taken up to promote tourism during the games as well as cater to the expected number of tourists at the time. Hotels are coming up with lucrative deals, infrastructure is being upgraded, and places of interest and tourist attractions are being paid special attention these days.

One such measure is the one-time road tax system initiated by ministry of tourism and ministry of road transport and highways by government of India. Currently, cars and taxis have to pull over every time they enter another state to pay the tax, which include Delhi, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, and Haryana. Scheduled to be effective from December 2009, the system will allow commercial and tourist vehicles of registered tour operators on the Golden Triangle Tour of India to pay the road tax only once at the beginning of the trip. This will allow these vehicles to avoid unnecessary delays during transit and allow more time to the tourists to actually see the tourist attractions they are interested in.

Besides, a number of AC Volvo buses will also be introduced during the Games to take the tourists from Delhi to Agra and Jaipur. Throughout the Golden Triangle circuit, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is in the process of setting up 500 sites that will have all the amenities that tourists and tour vehicles might need along the way, such as toilets, restaurants, telephone booths, first-aid facilities, telephone booths, kiosks, snack bars, parking lots, rooms where one can rest for a short while, and repair shops for normal travelers’ items.

Those who will want to make the most of their India travel might opt for super luxury trains such as Palace on Wheels and Royal Rajasthan on Wheels that not only cover three cities of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur on the Golden Triangle tour circuit but also take you to other cities of Rajasthan that showcase their splendor in art, culture, and rich historical and architectural heritage. The frequency of these trains will be increased during the Commonwealth Games in India and facilities like wi-fi Internet, on-board spa, and television with live satellite channels will also be introduced in the trains. Royal treatment on the train is only matched by the unique camel desert safaris, boat rides at Lake Pichola, and exclusive experiences of Rajasthan.

Though the three main cities of the Golden Triangle are connected via National Highways, the government is also focusing on developing better connecting roads to places of tourist importance, which will make the entire tour experience even better. The short and sweet Golden Triangle Tour of North India starts from Delhi, the capital of India and the host of Commonwealth Games in 2010, and takes you to Agra, the city of Taj Mahal, and Jaipur, the icon of royal grandeur in India. Within short distances of each other, these three cities introduce to the foundations on which modern India is laid.
