Rajdhani Express India – Traveling in Style?
Ever since we came to this country, we’ve been wanting to travel on board some of India’s luxurious trains. The famous Palace on Wheels or The Fairy Queen are out of question as $700 dollars a day for a double compartment is a bit beyond our budget. So we chose the Rajdhani Express.
Super deluxe clearly isn’t for us, but traveling on the deluxe Rajdhani Express for our 14-hour overnight journey from Ahmedabad to New Delhi wasn’t too shabby either. It was a bit painful to spend $133 on a couple of first-class train tickets as that amount would normally be our entire budget for a 5-day period. However, the promise of a first-class sleeper compartment and food served on china convinced us to shell out the dough.
Watch the video to follow along on our train journey and see for yourself what luxurious means in India, and why big bucks don’t always guarantee success. If you want to find out why we didn’t make it to New Delhi make sure you watch the whole thing.
