Solo’s Girls Trip to The Taj Mahal: What you should know!


Hey, globetrotters! Strap yourselves in because I’m about to take you on a whirlwind journey to the enchanting city of Agra, India. From surviving a long flight without Wi-Fi to uncovering hidden gems beyond the Taj Mahal, this trip was an absolute adventure!

Let’s start at the beginning. The flight was wild, folks! No Wi-Fi meant disconnecting from the digital world, but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I caught up on some much-needed sleep, fighting that pesky jet lag while dreaming about the incredible experiences awaiting me in Agra.

Speaking of Agra, if you’re planning a visit to the Taj Mahal, Ekaa Villa is the place to be! Not only is their hospitality legendary, but their authentic cuisine will transport your taste buds to new heights. As a female traveler, safety was a top priority, and Ekaa Villa Agra provided a secure haven that put my mind at ease.

One of the things that sets Ekaa Villa apart is their dedication to showing you Agra beyond the Taj Mahal. They organize affordable tours that allow you to explore lesser-known wonders like the Red Taj, Baby Taj, and Taj Viewpoint. These hidden treasures offer breathtaking views and incredible photo opportunities, all while avoiding the crowds of hundreds of thousands of visitors.

But hold on tight because our adventures didn’t stop there! One of the coolest and slightly icky experiences was venturing into the farmlands and immersing ourselves in real Indian agricultural culture. It was an eye-opening experience to witness the innovative use of cow dung in making cow dung cakes for storage sheds. Who knew something seemingly icky could be so fascinating?

If you’re up for some culinary fun, making chapati with the locals is an absolute must! The sizzle of the hot griddle, the aroma of freshly baked bread, and the laughter shared with newfound friends create unforgettable memories.

Now, a word of caution: Agra can get scorching hot, especially during the summer months. Make sure to slather on that sunscreen and consider carrying a mini fan to keep cool. Oh, and don’t forget to pack snacks and water bottles for your adventures. Trust me; you’ll be grateful for those energy boosters during your explorations.

Speaking of water, it’s essential to stay vigilant about what you consume. While Ekaa Villa provides filtered water to avoid “Delhi belly,” it’s always wise to remain cautious. And let’s not forget that India’s culinary landscape is predominantly vegetarian. As a protein-loving individual, I found it challenging to meet my daily intake. So, if you’re a non-vegetarian like me, it wouldn’t hurt to pack some protein bars for that extra boost.

India as a whole offers a truly remarkable experience, brimming with a vibrant culture and awe-inspiring sights. Yes, it can get crowded, but staying at Ekaa Villa ensured an authentic and uncrowded adventure. Their expertise in curating unique experiences will leave you in awe.
