Anyone who has been there have any advice as far as things to do/see/eat in those areas?
Also, should I just bring beater clothes?
obvs go to taj mahal and post fit pics and stuff, agra fort is also good. Both of those are some distance from delhi but are worth the travel. Check out the night markets in delhi too.
be very careful where you eat and hence what you eat. You can tell the restaurant is decent if it has an air conditioner (if you don't want expensive stuff all the time). Try and eat at a place called "Karim's" in Delhi. I have eaten their and the food is very clean, water is good (still get bottled from there) and it is some of the best tasting indian food you can get. Apparently, the ancestors of the owners were cooks for the mogul kings and stuff, but not sure on this
always drink bottled water, i even used it to brush my teeth because i cant stand the hard water.
be prepared to get slighty sick (just incase)
Bring mosquito repellant stuff as well as in Cochin they will drive you crazy, especially when you sleep.
