I'm trying to decide on an itinerary for a trip to India in May. I land in Delhi around 3/3:30am on a Thursday morning, and have to be in Chennai the following Tuesday evening for a wedding.
I've heard that Bombay is more fun/exciting than Delhi but because the Taj Mahal is closed on Fridays it complicates things a bit.
One possible itinerary is arrive Delhi 3am Thursday morning, drop bags off at hotel, hire car to do Agra/Taj Mahal Thursday (we can sleep in the car/train on the way to the Taj from Delhi), Delhi sightseeing/shopping Friday, then do we fly Delhi-Jaipur Saturday morning, spend Saturday/Sunday in Jaipur and then fly to Bombay either Sunday evening or Monday morning to spend 1.5-2 days in Bombay?
Alternatively, if people think we should spend more time in Delhi over Bombay - we can arrive Thursday morning, sightsee/shop in Delhi Thurs and Fri, Agra/Taj on Saturday with car driving us to Jaipur Saturday evening, spend Sunday in Jaipur and fly to Bombay Monday morning for 1.5 days?
